DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins was handed the keys to a team recently, and it could prove to ender in a lottery bound car crash.
Cousins is sick and tired of losing though and he wants to lead the team to a change.
“We’ve been a team full of excuses,” said Cousins to the Sacramento Bee. “And in the past, we really had an excuse. Now we don’t – it’s on us. Everything is set up for us now. It’s nothing we can complain about from the top to the coaches. Everything is set for us now. We just have to go out there and play. There’s no more excuses.”
Well, we will just have to see what excuse they come up with after the “no more excuses” excuse.
Thanks to the tweet below for the update.

Cousins impressed me during the lockout with a performance in which he got into a three point shooting exchange with old teammate John Wall, but admittedly Boogie’s maturity level needs to improve in the next couple years if he is going to be a true leader. Could a reunion with Wall help that matter? Who knows, but thanks to the ineptitude of Ernie Grunfeld it is not likely to ever happen.
Best of luck to Cousins and the Kings this season, but something tells me that they will have a chance to get a pretty great player in next summer’s draft. Believe me, was at the Champions Classic this Tuesday and there are PLENTY of players that are worth tanking for, and it is just the sad but honest truth about the NBA.
