    Recent rumors have suggested that the honeymoon may be over for the Sacramento Kings and their young lottery draft pick Center, DeMarcus Cousins. According to several sources, Mr. Cousins has requested a trade to another team, possibly the Pistons.

    Cousins averaged nearly a double double his rookie year in only 25 minutes of playing time. His questionable attitude and foul problems however make him a bit of a risk to a young, developing team.

    The big question for members of the Forum, however, is

    "How does Bill Laimbeer feel about DeMarcus Cousins?"

    If he were a forum member..........Bill Laimbeer would squish him like a bug.

    He would be concerned though, how it might affect the bright future of Rodney Stuckey.

    My guess is that he won't offer an opinion until at least 5 "Cousins" threads have been started.

    I say Bill would take on Cousins. He is a big talented guy...you have to take the risk.

    Cousins would totally steal minutes away from Villanuewha. The fans are all deprived enough as it is.

    The more I think about it, DeMarcus Cousins would not be a good fit for the Pistons as long as Charlie is around. Charlie would have to be part of a trade if things are going to work out.​
    Imagine the fireworks the first time Cousins calls CV a cancer patient:​

    I didn't realize CV tried to sucker punch Hollins in the groin. That's pretty weak.
