DeMarcus Cousins has lived up to his negative reputation coming out of college, and then some.

The Kings knew the risks that came with drafting the Kentucky big man. They took him with the 5th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft anyway because of his immense talent. No one disputes Cousins has the potential to be one of the best centers in the NBA, but after two-plus seasons, there aren’t many people in Sacramento (and even nationally) anymore who believe his talent is enough to mask his dysfunctional patterns.

Following the incident last Sunday, when Cousins was ejected after sending an elbow to the head of Mike Dunleavy, head coach Keith Smart sounded lost when taking questions about what to do with his troubled center.

    I think he should be set down for the rest of the season or take away his starting position and play him from the bench.
