Will DeMarcus Cousins crack the starting five at this year’s Olympics?
If this week’s fan voting on ESPN.com predicts the future, he will.
Cousins currently owns 57 percent of the vote for Team USA’s starting center position, leading DeAndre Jordan and Draymond Green for the honor. The vote for Boogie is up to 78 percent in Kentucky, where, of course, he played his college ball at UK; he has 61 percent of the vote in his home state of Alabama.
If the voting fans have their way, the United States’ starting lineup in Rio will look like this:
G – Kyrie Irving
G – Klay Thompson
F – Kevin Durant
F – Draymond Green
C – DeMarcus Cousins
