Pressure comes in big package for DeMarcus Cousins

Whenever DeMarcus Cousins arrives to a Sacramento Kings game or practice he sees his giant likeness staring right back at him. Cousins has yet to play a single regular season game for the Kings, but already a 35-foot-tall mural of the rookie center – that includes two pictures of him screaming between the words, ”KINGS” and ”COUSINS” – adorns one side of Arco Arena. Such larger-than-life production brings a lot of pressure to a kid who recently turned 20, but Cousins believes he can live up to the local hype.
