DeMarcus Cousins wants to play for Team USA
Cousins, in a typically candid postgame conversation, said he hoped to be invited to Las Vegas, and if so, expected to make the final roster. LIke, um, the 2012 Olympic roster. "I mean, who wouldn't want to play for Team USA?" he said. "Go over there and represent your country. I would love to do it."
Asked if he would be willing to go to Las Vegas strictly as an invitee with the Select Team, comprised of players chosen to challenge Team USA in scrimmages and practices, influencing the likelihood of their own future Olympic appearances, the Kings second-year center added: "I feel like if I did go play for the Select Team, I probably would get a spot (on the Olympic team). Honestly ... but we'll see."
