Carmelo Says He Loves DeMarcus Cousins; Calls Him His Project

Carmelo calls Cousins his project

Carmelo Anthony has a man crush on DeMarcus Cousins.

The New York Knicks defeated Sacramento 107-99 last night. Anthony posted 36 points and Cousins had 32 points. New York is now within two games of the eight seeded Atlanta Hawks.

Despite the big win, all Carmelo Anthony could rave about was DeMarcus Cousins.

“I love him, I love him,” Anthony said of Cousins. “I’m trying to get him to calm down a little bit but I love him, his game, what he can do out there on the basketball court. He stuffs the stat sheet, points, rebounds. He can pass the ball, got a good feel for the game. He just does a lot out there but I’m just trying to get him to calm down out there a little bit. I’m working on that, that’s my project.”

It’s good to see a veteran player like Carmelo take Cousins under his wing.
