NBA Playoffs 2022 - Denver Nuggets vs. Golden State Warriors
DeMarcus Cousins didn't understand why he didn't have an NBA contract that season.
He thought he'd proven last season he could help teams needing depth on the front lines, first in Milwaukee when Brook Lopez was out after back surgery, giving them 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds in a solid game. The Bucks eventually let Cousins go for financial reasons, so the Nuggets brought him in to support Nikola Jokic. He was solid again, averaging 8.9 points and 5.5 rebounds per game (and he had a 31-point night against the Rockets).
Confused, he called one of the former GMs who brought him here, Bob Myers of the Golden State Warriors. Myers shared their conversation on the All That Smoke podcast (via NBC Sports Bay Area).
"DeMarcus called me a month ago and said, 'Why am I not in the NBA?'" Myers told Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson on the All The Smoke podcast earlier this week. "And I said, 'You want that answer? ... Because people are scared of how you're going to behave." And he said, "Why?" And I said, "Well, whatever the reason, it's here now."
"And I like DeMarcus. You may know him. He's just, I can't blame him for everything he's been through."
Not long after that conversation, Cousins spoke to Chris Haynes and said he had learned from his past mistakes.
"Have I made mistakes? Absolutely. Did I do things wrong? Absolutely. I sincerely apologize for that. But I've done more things right and I've done more positive things compared to my negative ones. I just don't want these positive aspects to be overlooked. And of course, when it gets to the point where the negatives outweigh the positives, you should probably walk away from him. That's life. But I don't think I'm in this boat. I'm just asking for a chance to show my development as a man and a player.
Cousins also had physical issues, including a cruciate ligament tear that cost him a season with the Lakers in 2019-20. He also had domestic violence allegations at the time (those charges were dropped a few months later).
Cousins just wants a chance to prove he's got it all behind him and can help a team like he did last season. There have been rumors from Taiwan that Cousins could join Dwight Howard in this league, but Cousins has not confirmed it. He still wants his chance in the NBA. So he waits, hoping he can change the narrative around him.
