A bunch of links to tide you over:

  • Mason, for Hoopspeak, on the McGee/Cousins matchup: Cousins, however, impressed even more. If a typical box score was available, I've no doubt the Kings center would have easily tallied the highest plus-minus rating. He was a bully, blasting smaller players (including McGee) out of the way and using his long arms and soft hands to gather nearly every carom (nevermind that he finished the game with seven or eight fouls). Cousins does many things well- reliable shooting form, nifty passing, exquisite footwork near the rim-but the thing that really jutted out at me was his dexterity. He has incredibly skilled hands for such a young, humongous player.
