After Monday night's preseason loss to the Warriors, Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was asked about how this offense under Mike Malone compares with the others he's worked in.

Hey, someone want to throw (former Kings coach) Keith Smart a flashlight under that bus?

Defenders of Cousins for years have pointed to the lack of structure in the organization as the reason for his struggle to find consistency. Then again, Smart went out of his way to build a relationship with Cousins and get him to invest himself. It started great, and went downhill from there.

So we've heard this "Oh, this is much better" stuff from him before. Cousins just got a massive extension from Kings management. He has to make good on it. It's good that he's excited. But if he struggles to co-exist with Mike Malone, his third coach in four years, the Kings' patience may run out, even after the money they gave him.
