Cousins is an all-round talent who's simply been in a lousy atmosphere ever since he's turned pro. Who on that team or on that coaching staff is strong enough to contain him?
Are you serious??? Rodman was not a flake! The guy just became too selfish and distracted to be any worth.
You say he didn't participate beyond reboundin? That's incorrect. He may not have been a scorer in the NBA but Rodman was a VERY EFFECTIVE defensive player. The guy was a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year. Also, it's not like he couldn't score. He just chose not to. After all, the guy's numbers coming outta college were better than Cousins' - 25.7 points and 15.7 rebounds.
