I’ve long touted DeMarcus Cousins, way before the Kings selected him with the fifth overall selection in the 2010 NBA Draft. I would watch him at Kentucky and just marvel at the skills he possessed – the way he can see the floor, his ability to thread a needle – and only at the tender age of 20 (soon to be 21)? Sure, he makes poor decisions from time to time and yes, at times he’ll mold into a near seven foot Jason Williams – sending passes eight rows up into the crowd for every jaw dropping assist he provides – but to posses the skill set that he does for a player of his size? Extremely rare.
Yamizelda has three fantastic mixes which chronicle Cousins’ rookie year from a passing standpoint, the final two of which you’ll find after the jump.
If you don’t get excited about the Kings future after watching that – we might need to get you a defibrillator.
