Sacramento Kings’ DeMarcus Cousins Doesn’t Have Any Confidence

8502076There was a saying about how basketball is 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical.

Well, DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings may keep losing games if he says stuff like this. Here’s Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee with the story about Cousins.

One month into his third season with the Kings, the Big Cuz is in a massive funk. His numbers are down in all the pertinent categories. He isn’t running the floor with the same energy or commitment of last season. He repeatedly is finding himself in foul trouble and on the bench, or in trouble with his coach and on the bench.

And he doesn’t have any answers.

“I’ve been terrible,” Cousins said bluntly but softly. “We’re losing. I don’t feel like I made improvements from last year. I really don’t have any confidence at all. I’m just trying to think my way through it, but right now, I’m not finding anything.”


The Sacramento Kings are last in the Western Conference standings at 4-12. And if Cousins is playing with no confidence, this team isn’t going to go anywhere. He’s one of their best players (maybe THE best player on the team) and hearing that from him is yet another red flag about him. Cousins is one of the best young talents in the pivot spot but his maturity has been an issue ever since he first came into the league.

Assistant coach Clifford Ray implied that the suspension he received earlier might have affected his play.

“Before the suspension, DeMarcus was doing some very good things, setting great screens, holding screens,” Ray said, “and from what I saw last year, he is doing some things better. But he’s a young player, and sometimes young people get frustrated. They worry about things they can’t control, like when they don’t get the ball, when they get it too late or in the wrong spot. With him, I see some of that.”

If that’s the case, he can’t let it all get into his head. It’s still only December so it’s a young season. Cousins certainly has time to turn it all around. He’s in his third year, though, and this is the time in players’ careers where coaches and executives usually find out what kind of player they’re getting. He’ll have to play through it and the Kings will let him. Sacramento has no plans of trading their big man.

Cousins is still putting up some good numbers, averaging 16.0 points and 9.5 boards per game. He is, however, only shooting .417 from the field.
