Cousins: This is how you start your career?

Whatever the reason, this doesn't reflect well on our beloved ex-Cat.

Big Blue All Stars Exhibition Game Player List

1

Eight former Wildcats, all in the NBA, have verbally committed to participate in the Big Blue All Stars exhibition games. Eric Bledsoe, Demarcus Cousins, Josh Harrellson, Chuck Hayes, Brandon Knight, DeAndre Liggins, Jodie Meeks, and Rajon Rondo. Five or six of these eight will be at each stop of the tour. More stars could be added in the next couple of days. Here is the schedule and ticket information again.

Looks like two players UK fans were counting on coming back next season may very well be playing for pay next season.

Cousins in the Big Apple

This is a picture of DeMarcus Cousins from Coach Cal's Twitter page. Apparently, Cousins is asking random people on the streets of New York about UK. I thought it was pretty cute, and funny.

Cousins is a Badass

Yes, that's right, according to DeMarcus Cousins -- he is a badass. On the court, that is. This piece takes a look at Cousins' on the court personality and although I think some of his statements could be seen as controversial, I also think that his brazen, get-in-my-way-and-you’d-better-watch-out style of play is something we have been missing and I’m personally really looking forward to seeing it.

Melick: Is Alabama's basketball talk too tough for bluegrass-bound DeMarcus Cousins?

22

This is an interesting piece by Ray Melick of the Birmingham News. Apparently, Cousins has some difficulties in his high school career that haunt him to this day in Alabama, and combined with his decision not to stay with UAB unless they agreed to mutually terminate his LOI in case of a Mike Davis departure has left a sour taste in some folks' mouths. The thing with UAB was absolutely nothing for anyone to get upset about. It was a businesslike decision that is being demanded more and more often from high profile recruits, for good or ill. In the case of Memphis, I have no doubt it would have been the identical situation had Cousins opted to sign an LOI, which he did not. I don't like kids breaking their verbal agreements, but they do it all the time whether I like it or not, and it is frequently tied to coaching changes. More and more, high profile recruits are showing reluctance to sign letters of intent that don't include an agreement to mutually terminate it if the coach leaves. I can totally understand this, and agree with it as long as it is negotiated up front, and I think we will continue to see this trend in the future. As a practical matter, LOI's are almost always mutually terminated after a coaching change if the player desires it. I like the fact that more and more players are asking for that in writing -- it avoids ambiguities and misunderstandings, and the ethical quandary of breaking one's word in writing because the LOI is with the school, not the coach.

Team USA Trio Could All End Up At Kentucky

Micheal Eaves spoke very recently to DeMarcus Cousins, Xavier Henry and John Wall, and came away with the feeling that Henry and Wall would likely follow Cousins to the Bluegrass. I still believe Henry will wind up at Kansas, and I have no idea about Wall -- but this a first-person contact that has to be given some credibility, at least as much as the same comments made by the players to Rivals and Scout. If this were to somehow actually happen, I am of the opinion that it would represent the greatest college recruiting class in my memory -- a total of four of the top 25 recruits including the Rivals #1, #2 and #3.
