John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins are two of the best players in the NBA, yet their talents are currentlyÂ wasted on struggling franchises that haven’t put manyÂ intriguing pieces next to them.
So how about a reunion? Both players, who spent a season together at the University of Kentucky, are up for the possibility.
âWe talk about it all the time,â Wall Monday night, via The Washington Post, after his Wizards defeated Cousins and the Kings in overtimeÂ 101-95.
Cousins agreedÂ the discussion has taken place. He even included Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe, another former Wildcat, and identified a team for them to all meet up on.
âTheyâre going to all come to Sac,â Cousins said. âCome to Sac!Â [Wall] wants me [in D.C.], Eric want us in Phoenix. You never know what will happen. Itâs the NBA, so hopefully one day heâll be in a Sacramento uniform.â
There is reason to believe Cousins may want out of Sacramento, but Wall doesn’t think that’s the case.
âJust trying to figure out whatâs going to happen, you know what I mean?â Wall said. â[Cousins] loves where heâs at and I love where Iâm at, so whatever we feel like gives us the best opportunity to win âÂ I know what our [team] is here and what I want to do here. And itâs something I keep in my mind.â
The NBA is in an era of top talents joining up to try to win a championship together, so it would not be surprising to see these two (or three) link up at some point.
