It’s hard to explain to skeptics what we see in DeMarcus Cousins. Those who get it, get it. Those flashes of dominance, those tools refined and raw. The passion. If you’re not a fan of unfinished potential and an unkempt garden, DeMarcus Cousins may not be for you. We, of course, believed in the potential of Spencer Hawes, too, but that was different. We can see now that praying for beanpoles to toughen up to NBA standards is like, well, praying.
