    We'll miss you.

    Cousins had his faults, but he was our guy. I loved the passion he brought every night. Top 5 in league type player, imo.

    This thread isn't a discussion about how we were fleeced. It's a tribute to one of the best players to ever don a Kings jersey.

    This site just crashed for over an hour before I can even access it. That's how people care for you big man.

    Please wake me up from this nightmare.. After Malone, didn't think this franchise could break my heart that badly again. This is worse.

    I feel horrible that we wasted so many years of Boogie's career but at the same time, this trade is good for Boogie in the sense that he can finally win and can start fresh in New Orleans.

    I didn't even wanna trade Boogie but this return was horrible. :(

    Great player. Great community guy. Very sad he is no longer a King. Unbelievable.

    Thanks for everything Boogie, especially your loyalty! In addition to being completely insane from a basketball perspective, this trade is dishonorable and disgusting in light of Vlade's earlier promises. You deserve the opportunity to build your legacy in a better place.

    This may have been the straw that broke my back. (I'm a camel.)

    Go Boogie! Go Pels!

    Boogie and Davis will be fascinating television. Im a Kings fan though.

    Vivek's ambition to land the next Klay Thompson has really messed up Boogie's career. Drafted Ben, drafted Stauskas and now jizzed for Buddy Hield while officially sending off Boogie for remains of Reke and a mid round pick.
    This is the last straw for me. Vivek is an idiot that should never own a basketball franchise period.
    When I can say, the Maloofs are better than Vivek. That says a lot.

    I really do hope that Demarcus knows how much he will be missed and how much he was appreciated and how we hate to see him go. Go get that ring with a real organization big guy!

    Farewell big guy. We can officially move towards nba 3.0 and cherry picking. Best of luck and crush the kings everytime you get the chance. Don't forget to spit your mouth piece at the little indian guy.

    I'm so heartbroken... it makes no sense on any level.

    I'll always have a rooting interest around the NBA now, because it's going to be hard AF to root for this dumpster fire. :(

    Good luck with AD. I hope you both terrorize the league.

    This forum crashed for several hours when the trade went down. Still trying to process it but I'm happy for Cuz going to Nola and getting out of this dumpster fire. That's going to be an interesting team with the new twin towers and hopefully Jrue can stay healthy.

    Love you Boogie, and will be rooting for you.

    On the plus side, I think many Kings fans will be rediscovering many of the wonderful things our area has to offer.

    I have a feeling many of us are going to be caring about basketball a lot less.

    Boogie loved the area and many charities will miss him as well. There could be nothing going on that Boogie wouldn't offer a hand. From helping children, Christmas, feeding the animals at the shelter.
    The whole community will miss the man, as well as the player.
    The Kings will never change.

    Kingsfans community will now have to erase Cousins image from the forum.

    Cousins created a new set of boundaries of what really large humans can do on a basketball court. Great hands, good shooting touch. lateral quickness, ball handling ability and great passing all in one package. He was the first point power forward I have ever seen play the sport. I will miss all of those abilities in one player. Best of luck with your demons. Sometimes a fresh star with a different team really helps players. Maybe AD can be the team leader and set you free. Best of luck to DMC.

    I hope you find success wherever you may end up long term, whether in New Orleans or another team. I'd like to see you in the playoffs where the competition gets kicked up a notch.

    I hope you somehow wind up in Boston or Portland and I can be semi-whole again.

    You've been my favorite player and the bright spot for this dismal franchise for most of the last decade. I was so excited to see you play in the Golden 1 Center, I'm still enamored with the arena but I won't be scheduling a trip down to visit any time soon. Perhaps when you return with a new team.

    Thank you DMC.
    Curse you FO.

    It would be very interesting to watch Cousins in a playoff of championship game. Some teams would try to bait him into cheap fouls and getting ejected. He freaks out occasionally in games that mean nothing. With AD he has a chance to learn to control himself better and become an adult. The two of them together are going to be a lot of fun to watch.
