Chris Webber Mentoring DeMarcus Cousins
The perception is that DeMarcus Cousins is difficult to coach and difficult to deal with. And he has done little to disprove that since being labeled a malcontent in high school.
A mentor who has emerged for Cousins is former Kings forward Chris Webber, who played seven seasons in Sacramento. He has tried to offer sound advice, not criticism.
“I have the utmost respect for C-Web, he’s a real person,’’ Cousins said. “He just gives me advice, tells me how to handle situations. He went through similar situations so of course he has advice for me. I guess you can say a big brother looking over me.’’
