I'll give the organization 5% of the blame pie, tops.
I realize that this is the argument that will annoy people the most, and therefore it is your solemn duty to carry it to the grave, but there's a big gap between "Cousins causes problems which lowered his trade value" and "the most ineptly run franchise in the entire league, which fucked the dog on virtually every trade, signing and draft pick isn't to blame whatsoever." I mean, for fuck's sake, Zach Randolph was a way bigger headache off the court than Cousins ever was, not to mention less talented, and he showed that going from the Jail Blazers, Isiah Knicks and Dunleavy CLippers to a team that had reasonable talent and not completely dysfunctional management made all the difference in the world.
Fair enough but Cousins has gone from the most poorly run organization to the second most poorly run organization.
