Former Kings G Isaiah Thomas on Kings C DeMarcus Cousins: "I think if he ran the floor a little more, he would make the game a lot easier for him."
A parting shot or something meant as a compliment? You be the judge. Hard to say what kind of effect this statement has because it comes down to what Cousins thinks and whether or not it's even a true statement. If it is true and Cousins disagrees, then it's just a war of words. If it's true and he takes it as constructive criticism, then it helps. If it's not true and Cousins dismisses the statement then we're right back here at square one. And if it's not true and Cousins still listens to him, then it makes him a worse player. Thanks for your help Isaiah. Much appreciated.ANALYST: Howard Bender
