DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings


In the Knicks' buzzer-beating loss to the Kings last month, Cousins had his all-around game on display. Although he only tallied 15 points on 5-for-14 shooting, he grabbed 10 rebounds, added 5 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block. Enigmatic at times, Cousins has the talent to develop into a star. However, he currently lacks a nightly commitment on the defensive end. The best way to limit his effectiveness, like most big men, is to get him in foul trouble. Last time around he had five personal fouls in 31 minutes. Chandler played 37 minutes and put up one of his most impressive stat lines of the season with 21 points, 18 rebounds, and most importantly, only one foul.
