This Valentine’s Day, here’s a nice little reminder it’s always good to keep the Big Blue family close.
John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins will be forever linked together throughout history due to their time at Kentucky and the great bond they’ve been able to keep throughout their NBA careers. This fall, when Cousins signed as a free agent in Houston, just a few days before the Rockets traded Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for Wall and a protected first-round pick, the two reunited for the first time in a decade, much to the joy of the BBN.
In a small clip from a Houston Rockets All Access video, the two former ‘Cats briefly opened up about their well-documented bond and how it started in Lexington.

“The biggest thing that stuck out to me on our relationship is the support we had for one another,” Cousins said. “Coming from similar backgrounds, just the genuine love and support for one another and wanting success for one another. There was times where John would talk me off the ledge, and it was vice versa. The constant support and talking to one another, pushing one another, that’s one of the reasons we where we are now.”
The two have the Rockets sitting at 11-15 (8-9 post-James Harden drama) and are looking to turn the new-look Rockets into playoff contenders yet again. Can we get Bledsoe down to Houston too?
