Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Are the Warriors for real?
Cousins acted an ass at Kentucky and he acted an ass during the Olympic training camp, can people please quit acting like it's only because of the situation in Sacramento. It's his personality, it's him. He couldn't kept his act together around Jerry Colangelo, Coach K and some of the greatest basketball players in the world for a two week span. At Kentucky he was in a winning environment, playing with 7 other future NBA players. For a college team, that is very damn talented.
Maybe he would change if people started holding Cousins accountable for his actions instead of babying him and placing the blame on others. You know, just like Cousins does himself? Cousins shoots 40 percent for the season, a result of playing selfish ball and taking terrible shots "Oh it's his teammates fault, it's only because his teammates suck". Cousins acts an ass and throws a temper tantrum in the MIDDLE of a fucking game, that was so excessive he had to be left in the locker room during halftime and suspended by the team "Oh he's just in a bad environment. If he was on a team with veterans he suddenly wouldn't be an immature, bipolar moron."
You guys are delusional if you think just putting Cousins on a veteran team will change him. It's his personality, it's who he is. He won't change. Especially with how people baby him and never hold him accountable of his actions. Hell, look at him right now. He's acting an ass in Sacramento, throwing tantrums left and right and now has teams running to play Captain Save-A-Hoe under the impression that Cousins will dramatically change his attitude and persona. The only way I see him changing is if he ends up in an Andray Blatche like situation, where his attitude and antics have him on the brink of dropping out of the NBA and he gets one last chance.
