HOUSTON -- You saw it in small doses on Monday night for Team USA, but in the big picture of the life and times of DeMarcus Cousins, this sequence might demonstrate why hes such a talented player.In the middle of the second quarter of Team USAs easy 110-66 victory over Team Nigeria at the Toyota Center, there was a stretch where Cousins took over.He pulled down a rebound over Ekene Ibekwe, and the Nigerian got a little miffed at how physical Cousins was.If this were a regular-season NBA game in December, instead of the final exhibition game before Team USA heads to Rio, Cousins might have shoved Ibekwe and then jumped in his face. The reality of what this game is, an exhibition, gave Cousins pause and a certain calmness. He just smirked when Ibekwe shoved his arm down a little.No problem, because Cousins just kept playing, and on the next possession, he took the ball on the wing, drawing the defense toward him -- and then sent a pass to the corner, where DeMar DeRozan was waiting.DeRozan took the pass and stormed to the basket for a left-handed dunk from the baseline. This was Cousins showing his skills. When the night was over, Cousins had 10 points, five rebounds and a game-high plus-34 on the plus/minus column of the box score.Ive coached him before, and he knows international competition, Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski said. I thought he played really well, and he has played well; he ran well and he really defended well on the perimeter. Its something unusual for those big guys to be on the perimeter like that; theyre adjusting. And he gives us a low-post threat, and hell pass out of it too -- very unselfish.During the NBA portions of his life, Cousins is seen as someone who has problems with coaches, teammates and referees.This past season, Cousins averaged a career-high 26.9 points per game and pulled down 11.5 rebounds while shooting 45.1 percent from the field. He was second among centers in real plus/minus at 4.83. However, he led the NBA in technical fouls for the third time in the last four seasons with 17. Cousins temperament can be the biggest distraction to the truth of how good of a player he can be.The next month might be beneficial for Cousins as an opportunity to show the international world just how good of a player and person he is.It goes with whatever storyline is going on at the time -- if its negative, then its negative, Cousins told ESPN. Then if the story is going to be positive and then Im a great guy, I can only control what I can control. I know who I am as a person and thats all that really matters.When several American players -- including Russell Westbrook, James Harden and LeBron James -- were backing out of the Olympic Games to rest their bodies, Cousins raised his hand. He also dealt with health issues this past season, but he wanted to play on the international stage again. In 2014, he was part of the U.S. national teams FIBA World Cup championship team.The only stir Cousins has caused this offseason was questioning the Sacramento Kings draft. Cousins told The Undefeateds Marc Spears he was in hot-sculpting class the night of the draft. Whatever you believe, maybe these Olympic Games will bring more positivity from Cousins.I love the game, he said. I think thats obvious, and Im very passionate in what I do. I love my job. If I have a chance to play against some of the top talent in the world or whether its against guys around the corner, Im going to play.

PHILADELPHIA -- The NFL is expected to pick up the majority of the cost to stage the 2017 draft in Philadelphia, with the citys iconic Rocky steps serving as its backdrop.City officials say they dont expect the NFLs 82nd event to come at taxpayer expense, but instead expect to fundraise about $5 million of the $25 million budget with the league paying for the events staging and infrastructure.Senior vice president Peter OReilly said on Thursday the events location will represent a return to the birthplace of the draft. The first NFL draft was held in Philadelphia in 1936, when the Eagles selected versatile halfback Jay Berwanger first overall.This is clearly a very passionate football town, its also a city steeped in NFL history, Reilly said.The draft was held in New York for decades before being moved in 2015 to Chicago, where it was also held this year. It was last held in Philly in 1960.Hosting the draft is just the latest in a string of high profile events for Philadelphia. Pope Francis celebrated Mass in a similar location near the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Benjamin Franklin Parkway during a visit to the city last fall. The city also hosted the four-day Democratic National Convention in July.Mayor Jim Kenney said the city knows how to hold major events, and while hosting the draft may ultimately require some city funds, it will be worth the return on investment.Its a very signifiicant event from individual expenditures.ddddddddddddPeople who come are going to be spending money, Kenney said.City officials visited Chicago to see how the event was previously hosted, and took NFL leadership on tours of Philadelphia and its venues.Philadelphia beat out several other locations vying to host the event, which will be held April 27-29. The first three rounds are held in prime time. The hometown Eagles wont have a pick, however, in the first round.Draft organizers said Philadelphia may draw a bigger crowd than Chicago because nine NFL team markets sit within driving distance to the city. Philadelphia is currently one of 13 teams not to have won a Super Bowl.Julie Coker-Graham, Philadelphia convention and visitors bureau president, said more than 200,000 fans are expected to flood the city during the three-day event. Half of those fans are expected to come from out of town.ESPN analyst and former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski will help lead the host committee and said he and others were relentless in (their) approach to find a way to get the draft back to Philadelphia, 80 years after its conception.Theres incredible passion for football in this community, he said.---AP NFL websites: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
