Kings’ Cousins: I’m Ready to be the Leader
“Honestly, I (DeMarcus Cousins) feel like I’ve wasted time,” Cousins told News10 during a lengthy sit-down interview just before the first game of the 2013-14 NBA season. “I mean, I hate the fact that it took everything that we went through to get to this, but I guess you can say, it makes it that much better.”
“I’m always going to be myself, I’m always going to be the same player – just less mistakes,” Cousins said. “Not so much the technicals, because that’s part of the game, but getting ejected and letting my team down, those things I can’t continue to do.
“I believe I’m past that and I’m ready to accept responsibility and be this team’s leader.”
