    The thing is that once was a fiesty big man who played for Utah. He fought with the coaches, he fought with the owner, he busted other players with a few cheap shots, he was full of himself, a real jerk by most people's standards......and thousands lined up to cheer for him.

    Utah fans, myself included, would love a little nasty mixed in with this bunch of choir boys. If Cousins could reign it in just a little, he could own this town.

    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.
    Virtue lies in the struggle, not in the prize.

    My thoughts exactly. Bring him on after we have a real coach.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    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.

    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.

    Now I can't get this Billy Joel song out of my head...

    You may be right
    (He)may be crazy
    But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
    Turn out the light
    Don't try to save me
    You may be wrong for all I know
    But you may be right

    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.
