DeMarcus Cousins Badly Misses two 3-Pointers in Final Seconds Against Lakers (Video)

Demarcus Cousins

Players like DeMarcus Cousins and Larry Sanders, are unlikely to achieve true greatness in basketball, although, they have the talent to do so, simply because they lack discipline. They’ll show flashes here and there, put up good numbers, but as far as cementing themselves amongst the game’s greatest, not a chance.

In the waning seconds of a very exciting game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Sacramento Kings, with his team trailing by three points, Cousins, who is shooting an unsightly 19 percent from the 3-point line, saw fit to jack up not one but two shots from deep that weren’t even close which resulted in another loss for Keith Smart’s men.

  • Are you kidding me with this piece? I am not one to defend Cousins at any point but your title entirely misses the point. First, Kobe was not fouled AT ALL and a foul was called. Kobe threw up a shot that hit nothing but backboard and got a “star foul” called for him/ Cousins, meanwhile, made a legit move with a pumpfake to get the defender off balance and then took a shot. Howard was out of position and off balance and fouled Cousins on a three. How are you going to say that was a badly missed three? The second three was perhaps ill advised but the previous two calls were far more atrocious (the call for Kobe and the lack of call against Howard).
