Cousins is a pain in the ass. Like Mugg said, why no comment? It wasn't a personal question. Nothing about his contract. He was asked his thoughts on the new ownership/management. No comment? WTF? Just say I'm looking forward to getting out there and playing. He again comes off immature, but I'm sure he'll blame it on the media who is out to get him.
Everyone has publicly stood up for this guy -- Vivek, Malone and PDA. Clean slate with an exciting regime and pumped up fan base. And the first move from his camp is to demand the max or a trade. Great message.
I honestly could care less if he stays or goes. But that doesn't mean just give him away -- you better get talent back. We all recognize his ability, but at some point I like rooting for good dudes. If he wants to turn it around, I'll have open arms. Hopefully, Malone can get through to this kid.
He's a max player. No way around it.
