Cousins is a unique case. For a guy with "mental issues" as OJ Mayo said and a guy who gets suspended for looking at someone wrong, the guy has absolutely NOTHING on his arrest sheet. He hasn't ever been in trouble with the law. His attitude, imo, is a combination of being in a losing environment for the last 3 years (when he probably won everything growing up) and the fact that he isn't the best player on the court every game. He wears his emotions on his sleeve for everyone to see.

Also, the guy is only 22 years old. He has plenty of time to grow up and correct his attitude on the court, which is the only thing wrong with him right now. It's not like an entire team has said they are better without him *cough cough Memphis* *cough cough OJ Mayo*
Cousins has had questions surrounding his attitude dating back to his high school days, so I don't think this can fully explain what we're seeing.

I'm very encouraged Billy King is looking into firing Avery Johnson if things don't get straightened out. The man has no system and relies only on isolation plays. Even his players are calling him out. I just pray it won't be PJ Carlesimo who takes over.

He's a young, immature, selfish person. I don't think there is one thing you can point at as to why. But, if his attitude on the court is the only thing to worry about with him, I think there is a good chance he can change and grow up.

He isn't taking guns everywhere, he isn't hitting women, he isn't getting DUI's, he simply has on-the-court maturity issues. Hopefully the message Keith Smart sent him last night will point him in the right direction.

Time to stop delaying the inevitable and just trade him already. Maybe he'll mature a bit and get his head on straight if he gets out of Sacramento.
Trade him with his value as low as it is at this moment would be a terrible decision. They won't get back anything close to the value Cousins will end up being worth, and the team isn't exactly going anywhere this season so there really isn't any point to make a deal.

Apparently Fisher asked to be waived by the Mavs and they complied.

Unfortunately for Sac I imagine he'll eventually be moved along, then he'll get into the right environment and become one of the biggest forces in the league somewhere else.

There should be a contest to see how long can Fisher stay with a team other than the Lakers

I wish both teams could lose tonight (Warriors and Lakers). No 3-point game, please.









Oh wait, wrong sport.

Last 3 Lakers' possessions have been laughably bad. Dont follow the NBA much, why are they struggling so much this year?

Hard to adjust to a new coach who isn't very good, having no point guard, Pau Gasol massively deteriorating, etc. Will get better as the weeks go on, the Lakers haven't looked great tonight, but more cohesive than the last few weeks.

Even Kobe is committing some sloppy turnovers now.

Why were the Lakers forced to do a sign-and-trade deal to get Nash? Why couldn't they just sign him straight up without giving up picks?

Over the cap. Lakers had a trade exception left over from Odom, otherwise they could not have traded for Nash at all.

The potential of the high low game from howard and pau is pretty insane.
