Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski said that DeMarcus Cousins is in “unbelievable shape” in a report brought to us by the venerable News 10 crew out of Sacramento.
Cousins was repeatedly used during the fourth quarters of blowout games by George Karl last season, despite obvious foot and ankle problems, as the coach let the center hobble up and down the court until he finally took the last few weeks off. With proper treatment and on the other side of the Pete D’Alessandro-Karl era in Sacramento, Cousins is motivated to have a big season under new coach Dave Joerger, who didn’t try to trade Cousins before he stepped foot in the arena. Those were the days.
