DeMarcus Cousins: Just two months into his rookie season with the Kings, DeMarcus Cousins has gone from promising preseason to starter to reserve to kicked out of practice Monday. The rookie from Kentucky is averaging 10 points and 6 rebounds, which is nice (and now the bad: league-leading 4.2 fouls per game), but the attitude still needs work, if you’re reading between the lines on these quotes from coach Paul Westphal. “It was a necessary move in our continued attempt to help him develop. I’m not going to get into details. He was asked to leave early.” Are we thinking he’ll more likely turn out like Zach Randolph, or be a complete waste, like Eddy Curry? [Sac Bee]
Last important English soccer game until … August.
Every once in a while, the Internet is great.
He apparently prefers to start.
Big risk, big reward.
Someday I suppose.
