DeMarcus Cousins made his shameful return to the Kings lineup tonight. Coming off the bench, he had the look of a child who’s just been let out of his room after tipping over all the furniture and crying himself unconscious. He shot badly, but did pick up some boards along the way. We’ll monitor the situation, but the body language still isn’t good. Epiphany or some level of catharsis doesn’t appear to be in this kid’s future any time soon.
On an even more sour note, LowerTheRim begrudgingly eats crow on this night, as Jimmer Fredette looked real good in losing to the Grizz. Yet true to our hatership, we will still note that although putting up points, he did little more than that. IE: it would appear that Jimmer is faster toward JJ Redick Land than super stardom.
