Default Anthony Davis has to carry his team even WITH Demarcus Cousins

Cousins is embarrassing, dude. Can't stay out of foul trouble, or trouble at all.

AD deserves better.

Nothing new there. He's always had foul issues. The coaching is shit and it takes time to add a player like cousins to a team like this. Stop judging thsi early.

Anthony Davis has barely done anything more than Cousins for his career.

People need to stop acting like Cousins joined a great team/franchise/player that has proven anything.

All the Pelicans have done since AD came was make stupid front office moves and lose a bunch of games with AD putting up big numbers.

I used to think AD was going to be the next in line of forwards that just get you 50 wins with just about anyone around you.

Just don't see the huge impact. He's in year 5 and in only one year so far of his career does his team have a positive differential with him on the court.

That simply isn't good enough if you are supposed to be an all time great.

First off, he can't stay healthy so that's completely on him. This might be his first year to break 70 games played. Second, he was doing well until he got without a doubt the worst coach in basketball and they started encouraging him to shoot 3's. I don't care how good a player is, if they listen to a complete idiot coach, they're going to play poorly.

Once AD gets a competent coach I think he'll turn the corner again but as long as he has a coach that thinks his skill is to shoot 3's and not to run pick and rolls...

I agree with most of this and I understand he's had a rough situation so far.

However...this is year 5.

I expected more.

Given I think his coach is almost TRYING to make him a worse player, I think he's doing well. But he's got to stay healthy and his defense still needs to improve.

That said I don't blame you for wanting more.

AD/Cousins have both played in losing situations all their careers. Their team lacks depth so they have to be amazing every night or they lose.
