Cousins: ‘I Really Don’t Have Any Confidence’
“I’ve been terrible,” Cousins said bluntly but softly. “We’re losing. I don’t feel like I made improvements from last year. I really don’t have any confidence at all. I’m just trying to think my way through it, but right now, I’m not finding anything.”
Based on Cousins’ own personal growth chart, this was supposed to be a year of appreciable professional development. He came to training camp talking about the All-Star Game, about pushing the Kings toward the playoffs, about taking what he learned from his experiences with Team USA into the 2012-13 season.
This can still be his year. One month doesn’t dictate a season or a career. But as Cousins has regressed, so have his Kings. The lack of cohesion and camaraderie has been acutely and painfully familiar.
