Rumors are that Boogie will be signing in Taiwan soon.
It’s hard to feel sorry for DeMarcus Cousins, given that he’s the master of his own downfall.
Cousins fell in the draft to the Sacramento Kings because of bad temper & inconsistent motor. He’s never worked on his defensive game and although he’s never been ‘overweight’, it’s obvious he’s never been in elite shape, which I’m sure contributed to his ACL tear.
He was actually good on defense before injury. He led the league in charges at least twice, his blocks and steals were impressive, and his on vs off numbers were excellent.
He’s also been a hard worker.
His faults traditionally were related to his temper, and occasional effort in games his teammates sucked.
But, once injured, he lost so much athleticism. His defense on a good night is limited to average. His offense is still good, and is very versatile.
I think he could help various contenders, but he’s obviously no longer an All-NBA player.
