Default Demarcus Cousins will be a top 3 big man in 3 years.

Mental stability provided.

Guy's an offensive juggernaut. Has the potential to be the most dominant big man since Shaq.

28/11/4 against Lamarcus Aldridge
24/7 against Josh Smith/Al Horford
27/10 against Andrew Bynum/Pau Gasol
25/12/7 against Emeka Okafor
20/6 against KG/Kendrick Perkins
25/14 against Al Jefferson
19/15 against Tyson Chandler
29/7 against Dwight Howard

Providing He stays mentally healthy and Bynum physically healthy they will have some great battles in the coming years.. Already a little bit of bad blood between them.. Would love to see Cousins help revive big men in the league

Howard has guarded Cousins maybe 5 possessions this whole game. He drew 2 fouls against him and Howard packed him once. I don't think he scored against him at all.

Still, doesn't take away from his game. He has some great post moves.

Cousins isn't gonna be top 3. Man I don't know what to think about Cousins because of how incredibly immature he is. I had always heard about it, and I don't watch many Kings games, but when i finally saw a Kings game I was amazed at how ridiculously immature he really was. You could see guys rolling their eyes at him and eventually he had to be benched. I could see him being like a 5-7 time all-star or something but I don't think he'll ever be a top 3 big man.

He has the talent definitely. He gets frustrated when things don't always go his way, and that leads to his poor performances. It's been great to see how much he's developed from the Kings season opener to now.

That's alot of years for such a talent on a shitty big man league. I think by next year he will reach that status which is not something really to brag about, of course the goal is to knock off Howard, which IMO is not something that is impossible if he keeps improving.

He has almost everything you need to have a thriving career, if he gets to learn to control your character and have a positive approach, and forget their problems off the court, can be a the best big man of the league. I love this player and I wish with all my might that happen, but unfortunately I lack faith.

Just needs to get out of Sacramento and play under a coaching staff that'll put a boot in his ass when he acts out of line.

Yeah, missing a road game for getting in a fist fight with a teammate because you didn't get a last minute touch in a game is definitely adequate punishment. I'm sure he was super miffed about missing practice for talking back to Westphal too.

If he keeps it up maybe they won't stop at his high school coach and perhaps hire his kindergarten teacher, his best friend from 8th grade and Mr. T to help keep him in line this time around.

Get real, dude. You know a coach like Sloan, Rivers, Jackson... hell, even Adelman wouldn't tolerate this kids bullshit. Talent or no talent. They walk on egg shells around this numb skull in Sac.
