DeMarcus Cousins admits he, John Wall, and Eric Bledsoe want to play together
The Wildcats want to join up and presumably form basketball Voltron
DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall and Eric Bledsoe were part of a special group at Kentucky. Even though that team didn't win a title, it was still an incredible collection of talent. It's also a group that really enjoyed playing together and bonded. They've stayed close, even as each have been sent to franchises that have never really known playoff success outside of those two good Wizards runs.
So it's no surprise that they've talked about teaming up, the way all NBA friends talk about playing together. DeMarcus Cousins was asked about the prospect Monday night before he and the Kings lost to the Wizards in Washington.
"Do we ever talk about playing with one another? Is that your question? It's come up," Cousins said, playfully saying that he wants Wall and Bledsoe to join him in Sacramento, Wall wants them in D.C., and Bledsoe wants them to head to Phoenix with the Suns.
None of these scenarios seems likely.
However, as easy as it is to throw this kind of talk away as speculative and Cousins just messing with media, this is also how team-ups start. Whispers, little comments, small talk. It starts there and ends with a big free-agency or trade move. Wall and Cousins have always had a kinship. Wall is blunt, Cousins acerbic. Wall is one guy who can help manage Cousins and keep him engaged. Now they just need to find somewhere to go.
