Demarcus was inactive by the Kings (barred from flying for a road game) due to a locker room incident. What is going here? He was complaining about not getting a pass from a teammate?

Next Marbury if you ask me.

That is too bad because he does have some potential to be something good in this league (I won't say great for now). His attitude may hinder him from reaching his peak which is sad. Siigggghhh....

The problem right now is that players, especially men's basketball players are being babied, told that they're on top of the world from high school (and AAU especially) through the pros.

These one and done players overall are mostly divas to some degree and being babied makes them less coachable. Even John Wall isn't exempt from this either as there was a story about John Wall requesting his coaches to fine him every time he pouts and does something potentially detrimental to the team during games, practice and otherwise. Sure, John wants to correct this stuff, but I don't think the NBA is the place for players to learn how to be professionals either.

Oops, confused Demarcus Cousins the Kings player with DeMarcus Nelson who was a starter at Duke for 2 of his 4 seasons. Nelson is now a pro player in Europe. Edited the title. I'm still giddy over the road win!!!

idk... but i don't think his future looks good.

he isn't 21 yet, he isn't THAT good yet, and he doesn't have a lot of money yet... but he's acting like he's amazing and w/e he says goes.+ he's immature.

I don't wanna see how he's like when he's legally able to drink, when he makes some more money and when/if he actually becomes a great player. He's gonna be very hard to deal with.

I'm actually on Cousins side right now...

Because according to RealGM (don't know if credible), Cousins was going crazy because Evans did not follow the play and instead just jacked up the three...

And then FanHouse is saying that Westphal is too scared to say be critical of Evans because 1. Westphal might not have his job and 2. Evans is the star and doesn't want to alienate him.

But I do agree that Cousins needs to calm the hell down....I think we need to know the other side as well...
