It seems as if Demarcus Cousins finally has the respect of his head coach George Karl.
Karl is not only campaigning for Cousins to make the Western Conference All-Star team, he took it a step further by calling his player the best center in basketball.
"He's helped us at both ends of the court. ... I don't know anybody that's playing at this level right now, and I hope the NBA recognizes it and gives him an opportunity to play in Toronto [at the All-Star Game]."
Cousins, has scored at least 29 points in eight of nine games during the new year.
Demarcus is an elite NBA player with an incredible set of skills for a big man. He runs the floor gracefully and finishes with power. He can knock down jumpers and attack the rim off the dribble with ease. Cousins is also a relentless rebounder. On the season Demarcus is averaging 26 points and 11 rebounds a night.

Is Demarcus Cousins The Best Center In The NBA?

It might be just me...but if I were the head coach, I would take Anthony Davis over Cousins any time.
I don't think he's the best center
@bobs yeah I agree Demarcus can be a headache, but the Kings havent been too stable of a franchise either, lots of player and coach turnover since his arrival.. he deserves better
@mchylang Yeah if we were to consider Davis a center.. he would probably say he's a power forward though, he's like 230 pounds, Cousins is like 270 lol
@ChriSingularis I agree, I think Drummond is his best competition at the center position right now, at this point I would give Cousins the nod because he has a way deeper skill set offensively right now
