Loved by Nikola Jokic, DeMarcus Cousins ​​still drags his bad reputation | NBA

Is it that DeMarcus Cousins will end the season at the Nuggets? Convincing the Bucks, he was ultimately not retained, and now it is Denver’s turn to rule on his case. Author of 5 points and 9 rebounds against the Nets, the former All-Star is coming to the end of his 10-day contract, and he does not know if he will be kept…

I would love to stay here, I really would. I think it works well “reacted the person concerned. ” I think I can bring the necessary energy to help the team take it up a notch“.

At 31, DeMarcus Cousins ​​would like to settle down, and this role as Nikola Jokic’s understudy suits him very well. The Serb is also in favor of him staying.

“I always thought he was a bad guy. In fact, I love it” admits Nikola Jokic. “Before, we were more or less rivals, but he’s a really good guy. It’s fun hanging out with him. He has a great personality. Sometimes he gets a little crazy when the referees don’t whistle his way. He proved me wrong about him. “

“It takes time to get to know a person, and it can change a point of view”

Precisely, DeMarcus Cousins ​​is disappointed to always have this label of “bad boy” stuck on the forehead.

“It’s frustrating…It’s hard when you’re in the middle of stories you don’t agree with. But it’s a business that relies on people-made stories. Sometimes it’s true and sometimes it’s not. All I can do is keep insisting and being the best version of myself.” explains former Warriors and Lakers center. “I know who I am, but I’m viewed 100% differently than any other player in this league. Is it right ? No. But that’s the situation I’m in. I hate that. I think that’s unfair. It’s like that. It takes time to get to know a person, and it can change a point of view. “

If anyone knows the real DeMarcus Cousins, it’s Mike Malone. If the integration is also going so well, it is because they had known each other in Sacramento, and the pivot had been very disappointed when its leaders had separated from the current Denver coach.

“He has a positive impact, and you shouldn’t judge him only on the stat sheet” warn the coach. “He brings rebound, defense, hardness, a physical dimension… I find that huge. “

Unbeaten with Denver in five games, DeMarcus Cousins ​​is not master of his destiny, but Nikola Jokic will have done his best to keep him. ” I think he can help us. He’s a talented inside and he can do a lot on the pitch. “
