Quote of the Day: DeMarcus Cousins says this new Kings offense is his first

“Actually this is my first one.”

—Kings center DeMarcus Cousins when asked about the new offense of coach Mike Malone, as tweeted by Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports.

John Calipari can be offended, but the Kings can’t. In his three seasons up to this point with the team Cousins has dealt with whatever it was Paul Westphal was trying to run, then Keith Smart’s offense came in and it was more uptempo and effective but not exactly pretty (the Kings did finish about the middle of the pack on offense last season).

We’ll see what Malone’s offense looks like but you can see why Cousins likes it. Before the season Malone said he wants to stay uptempo then work more inside out through Cousins in the half court (he wants to use his best players and exploit matchups, which is what every coach says). We’ll also see what Cousins says about it in three months.

    This Kings team has a lot of promise if they draft well in 2014, McLemore develops and DMC gets his head right

    as much and as often as he complains…i’ll believe it when i see it…although mike malone knows exactly what he wants to do. he’s a great coach; just look at what the warriorrs did the last couple of years.
