Should Boogie be a Blazer?

DeMarcus Cousins: missing piece, or major headache? Ashley Williams breaks it down.

Posted by Blazer's Edge on Wednesday, November 9, 2016

There’s no doubt: DeMarcus Cousins is one of the best centers in the league, and has been for a while. With his recent stints with USA Basketball (and understanding that his Sacramento Kings aren’t the most functional NBA franchise) there’s hope that his attitude and motivation issues aren’t as troublesome as history suggests.
