Default Cousins is going to rectify his reputation this year

I can feel it. When he comes back, he's no longer going to be playing for a losing franchise. He's going to be a solid contributor that fits in effortlessly. He's basically a point guard that can pass and shoot 3's, playing in a center's body. He'll go farther this year than Anthony Davis ever did.

Another misleading thread title just to trick innocent posters into talking about LeBron

He tore his Achilles dude he's done. He was already slow and vertically challenged. It's gonna be even worse now. Not many guys come back close to the same player they were and I don't think anyone comes back better

- Never made playoffs with Kings, never .500,
- Fails to make playoffs with Pelicans after trade,
- Next season goes down injured and Pelians make playoffs without him, winning 1st rd as underdog via sweep.
- Coach killer.
- Consistently the guy in league with most technicals. .
- Empty stats.

How is hoping on the GSW bandwagon and riding someone elses coattails gonna rectify that?

Cousins can hit the 3 and handle the ball. A less athletic cousins is at worst a jokic.

True OP, Cousins missing half the season, contributing as the Warriors 5th best player and winning a ring on a team that's already won 3 without him is going to go along way to enhance his legacy. I could see people 50 years from now debating where Cousins '19 ring ranks among the likes of 2011 Dirk, 2016 LeBron, 2009 Kobe in terms of legacy defining rings

But for real though, who did the Kings give him to succeed? Tyreke Evans was never the same after his rookie year. They drafted that guy from Kansas, Mclemore (forgot how to spell it). I thought the guy would be a pretty good steal at the position he was drafted. I thought he could be a bit like a 20 ppg Ray Allen type of player (so did a lot of people). Idk the whole Kings franchise is ran poorly yet they are 8-6 this year. Kind of like the Hornets in the East, it's questionable who they draft sometimes and the seem to have trouble developing the talent they have.

Why are the Kings better as a team now than they were with Cousins? And the Pels better without Cousins? Is it possible that playing impactful team ball leads to more winning than one guy collecting empty stats with zero leadership and zero intangibles?

Cousins will NEVER be part of winning as a 1st/2nd option.

It shows that when Cousins is gifted top PER guys, they maintain their stats and PER, whereas Wade and Bosh saw their top 5 PER's disappear next to Bron in 2011

Obviously, Cousins is playing optimally and LeBron's style is flawed.

How are you guys not getting this yet?
