John Wall, Beasley, and DMC playing against the UMD Turps. DMC looks likes he's in GREAT shape when they show him in the beginning of the video. I wasn't sure it was him when I first watched it, but they show the player's name in the bottom-left of the video.

I'd really give him strong consideration at number 7. We'll always need someone who can defend the Durants, LeBrons, Melos, etc.

After Westphal relayed Petrie’s orders, Cousins departed the plane. Kings guard Francisco Garcia(notes) was upset that Cousins had been sent home, one source said. Garcia had Cousins meet with him at the Kings’ practice facility on Thursday for a long talk about the rookie’s professionalism and how he can better live up to his potential to be one of the team’s top offensive options. While Cousins’ teammates get along well with him and hang out with him away from the court, they’re often frustrated by his moodiness and immaturity when things aren’t going his way, a source said. Some of Cousins’ frustration, however, stems from his belief that some of his teammates aren’t punished or criticized as hard as he is when they make mistakes, another source said.

In Case of Lockout - Break Glass

During his rookie season, Cousins has flashed both the potential that made him a favorite of statistical analysts based on his performance at the University of Kentucky and the immaturity that made teams wary of drafting him. Starting with a 21-point, 16-rebound effort against the Memphis Grizzlies on Dec. 28, Cousins appears to be turning the corner. In his past six games, Cousins has averaged 21.2 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. The biggest key for Cousins has been his ability to stay on the floor. After topping the 30-minute mark just four times in his first 28 games, Cousins has been above 30 three times in the past six -- not counting the 29:56 he played in Thursday's win over the Denver Nuggets. Though he has yet to overcome it, Cousins has been able to limit the impact of the foul trouble that has plagued him throughout the season (he's the only player in the league averaging more than four fouls per game) and has played well enough to convince Paul Westphal to trust him out there for extended stretches. Beyond the minutes, the biggest change in Cousins' game has been the improvement in his accuracy from the field. Inexplicably, the 6-foot-11 post had been making just 41.3 percent of his 2-point attempts. The problem, as pointed out by Hoopdata.com's shot-location numbers, has been Cousins' tendency to shoot too often from long range. His shot selection has improved only slightly, but Cousins has made shots from 16 to 23 feet at a respectable 47.1 percent clip lately, justifying taking them. That number figures to fall, as Cousins has hit just 35.0 percent of such shots over the course of the season. Some of Cousins' other gains are more likely to be sustained. He is turning the ball over less frequently while also displaying an ability to create plays from the high post as a passer. Cousins has also increased his usage rate from 26.2 percent of the Kings' possessions to 28.6 percent. That Cousins has the talent to play like this has never been in question. What he will have to prove, instead, is that he can manage to sustain it over the remainder of the season.

Kevin Martin had 45 pts tonight on 18 attempts. He did so against the generally strong defensively Portland Trailblazers. He was 6/8 from 3pt range and 13/15 from the ft line, and the majority of these scoring looks were created off his own dribble or as a pull-up in transition. I miss him. :'(

Nene, Marc Gasol and Marcin Gortat. Cousins turned those three centers into toast during the holiday weekend, scoring 69 points on 46 shots. And he did it in every way possible. Smash-and-grab buckets in the paint. Sweet post moves. Soft midrange jumpers. He also collected 32 boards (including 16 against Memphis) in those contests. It's possible that for the first time this season, Cousins' teammates realized he's their best talent, and it could mean more late-game touches for the big rookie. In fact, in the Kings' comeback win over Phoenix, Cousins poured in 13 points in the fourth quarter while Tyreke Evans watched from the bench. One thing is certain: Cousins has put together far more good games than bad ones during the past five weeks and is looking like the player we all knew he could be.
