30. Kings Draft DeMarcus Cousins: In the 2010 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings with the 5th overall pick selected All-Star big DeMarcus Cousins. Throughout Cousins 5+ seasons so far with Sacramento, he has averaged 19.2 points and 10.7 rebounds a game, and has earned an All-Star selection in 2015.
The Kings in recent seasons have struggled greatly, but the hope that keeps Kings fans optimistic that their struggles will turn around is Cousins. He is considered one of the best talents in the NBA today, and is continuing to improve as he is only 25 years old. As long as the Kings contain a star player in Cousins, hope will exist going forward.
