I watched the end of this game on NBATV last night, and after the Evans shot, Cousins was stomping around the court throwing his hands in the air. I was wondering WTF his problem was since he was never close to touching the ball.

I'm surprised. I've gone to a few different sites and have yet to see any Kings fans really bash Cousins that much. I realize the guy is talented, but it's not like this is the first incident he's had this year.

Rasheed Wallace Jr

Wallace became a productive player despite his inability to control his emotions.

From what I've seen so far, Cousins is a lot more on the selfish side. There's a difference between public saying a call is bogus and getting T'd up and getting into a fight with your teammates over why he did not give you the ball for the last shot.

Also, what made Sheed special was his defense. When he was on, he may have been the best defender in the league.

Rasheed also had a tremendous basketball IQ.

Rasheed was one of the best defenders of the era. Cousins is a hot head who gets pissed off at teammates. Big difference, imo.

I thought "became a productive player despite his inability to control his emotions" was enough of a qualifier to show I wasn't comparing Cousin's and Wallance's careers or ability, but rather the way they handle their emotions.

Silly me.

There's a difference between going off on teammates and getting mad at refs.

I understood what you were saying, and I was implying that it was my opinion that Rasheed's above average bball IQ helped offset his emotional instability.

I should have been clearer.

Believe me, I'm not a Cousins apologist and I don't think he holds a candle to Rasheed. But Rasheed has deeper issues than with refs. Remeber the Sabonis towel incident? I think Cousins is a worse, but Sheed had some anger issues.

Or how about when Rasheed & Bonzi allegedly threw basketballs at Reuben Boumtje-Boumtje's head.

Another ex-Blazer could be a real comparison to Cousins... Zach Randolph.
