    I think the guy is the reincarnation of Derrick Coleman, but he could turn it around if he ends up somewhere solid like Chicago, Boston, or especially San Antonio.

    PKM is probably right, he needs a coach he was so committed to that he would die for him, and a player he respected who could put him in his place. And that isn't in Utah, but then again Frank Layden didn't exactly have a pedigree, and Stockton had to grow into Malone's partner.
    I'm okay with a little nasty. I don't think Cousins is a little nasty. I think he's a little nutso.

    You might be right, but your probably wrong.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    People keep making that comparison but Cousins is way worse.

    Coleman was never a problem in college. There is no video of Derrick Coleman throwing temper tantrums on the bench at Syracuse. To this day Boeheim speaks glowingly of him.

    Coleman was the number one pick - no teams were trying to avoid him in the draft.

    Coleman came out of the gate and put up all-star numbers. Cousins numbers are solid - Coleman was better. I personally attended games where Coleman would drop 20/10 without breaking a sweat (which was part of the problem with him)

    Coleman played in a different era - there was a certain code of conduct that all players were expected to follow no matter who they were. The Kings and The NBA have bent over backwards for Cousins. They fired Paul Westphal, they look the other way when he does dumb ****. Coleman and management were constantly butting heads.

    The main problem with Coleman (which he admits today) is he didn't like basketball or the effort associated with being an NBA Player. Cousins is just ****ing nuts.

    A Malone to Cousins comparison is way off. Malone was never the head case Cousins is. If Cousins was anything like Malone, he'd demand a trade out of Sactown, but not Cousins, he has stated that he wants to stay in that hell hole. If I were Malone and Tag was making more money then me, I'd come off as a jerk as well.

    when is that going to be? Has there ever been any rumors that management is even slightly turned off by Ty's coaching ability, because I've never heard any such thing as this.

    Coleman was a nut as well, but still managed to put up numbers much better then Cousins.

    Anyone remember how he tried to bully Earl Watson and Devin Harris last year and ended up backing down because they intimidated HIM? Big man, he is. Can't even successfully bully players a foot shorter than him.

    He's garbage.
