NBA Rumors: Cousins-Wall-Bledsoe Trio Just Like In University Of Kentucky; Is This Possible In NBA?
DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall and Eric Bledsoe are the trios who led the University of Kentucky to victory during their time. The three players had a successful career in college but their success in Kentucky was not visible in their play in the national league.
After moving on from college in 2010, Cousins was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 2010 as he decided to forgo his final three seasons of his college eligibility to play pro. Since then, Cousins has been with the team up to now.
On the other hand, John Wall has a slightly better career than Cousins in the NBA. Just like Cousins, he also forgoes his final three seasons and college to join the 2010 NBA Draft in which he was expected to the Washington Wizards first draft.
He has been with the Wizards ever since. But even if they had successful careers in college together, they can't seem to replicate it when not together.
According to New York Post, the topic of Cousins and Wall reuniting in the NBA has been discussed before. Cousins even included former Kentucky player Eric Bledsoe in the mix.
Cousins said, "[Do we] talk about playing with one another? Is that your question? It's come up." While Wall also agreed "We talk about it all the time."
Both Cousins and Wall play in the All-Star Team and their teamwork in the All-Star is great. Now the question is, will a team up between three Kentucky players possible in the future?
For now, these are all just speculations but the fact that these players are talking about it, there might be a chance that this would happen in the future.
As Cousins said in the Washington Post, "They're going to all come to Sac, Come to Sac! [Wall] wants me [in D.C.], Eric wants us in Phoenix."
He added, "Play with John and Eric again. You never know what will happen. It's the NBA, so hopefully one day he'll be in a Sacramento uniform."
