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...
