According to Kings general manager Vlade Divac, DeMarcus Cousins is the planet’s “most dominant” basketball player.
Divac has kept a close eye on his All-Star center throughout the pre-Olympic tuneups, and says he feels bad for the competition.
Boogie can’t stop smiling while hooping for Team USA, but his sunny outlook may change once he returns to Sacramento next season.
Per CSN Bay Area:
He’s primed to show the world what both he and plenty of others around the basketball world already believe — that he is the best big man in the world. […] “It’s a no-brainer,” Kings general manager Vlade Divac said from his courtside seat. “He’s the most dominant player in the whole world. And being from Serbia, I have to root for Serbia, but I feel bad for them. He’s going to kill them.”
The Kings are hoping that this experience makes an impact on Cousins that he can bring back to the team. The Kings are banking that the experience of playing with some of the best will help Cousins develop the leadership skills he needs to help Sacramento turn the corner. […] Only time will tell if playing for his country will have the desired effect, but one thing is for sure — Cousins is having the time of his life.
“I’m having a lot of fun,” Cousins said with a grin. “I’m around a great group of guys — laughing, joking all day, enjoying each others company, playing basketball, which we all love. It’s been a great time.” […] “It’s fun to be around winning,” Cousins added.
