    All things considered, I give DMC a B-. Definitely some maddening moments, but that was expected with such a young player. Still plays out of control, makes poor decisions and shows immaturity with his attitude. But you can see how good he’ll be — surprisingly good face up game, some polished post moves, good passing instincts, takes charges well.

    Only going to improve and definitely an exciting piece.

    Agreed. I recall Chris Webber talking about Cousins during Summer League and how Cousins rushes everything – Webber said he did the same as well until Coachie helped him slow down.

    I still see Cousins rush things a lot, but, it’s not nearly as bad as it was to begin the season. Assuming he keeps his head on straight, it’s hard not to be excited about his future. To have the tool set he does at his size is really rare.
