Accoring to @KingJames via twitter "Give me John Wall or DeMarcus Cousins for ROY this year. Them young cats been balling in Summer League"

Demarcus cousins is a beast and John Wall might be sharing with Gilbert Arenas too much so i think Demarcus will win it..giving the sacremento queens back to back ROYs..has that ever been done?

I think Blake Griffin will be better than Cousins.

Griffin will give him a run for his money. Theres an awful lot of talented young guys that are going to be in the discussion, but Cousins and Wall would be my early favorites (not that a few summer league games are anything to base an opinion on, but...).

^I'd agree with Griffin being the favorite, and really who cares who LBJ tweeted he thinks is going to win it?

That said, I watched the Kings summer league game yesterday, and Cousins looked pretty impressive. Great footwork in the low post and a great rebounder. His was trying out his mid-range shot, but I'd say it looked a pretty shaky. I think he hit the game winner though (unless minny came back and scored with a couple seconds left; feed wen tout).

Got a lot of young talent coming in this year, should be fun to see.

Carl Landry is better than him at this point, so they'll be splitting a lot of minutes with Jason Thompson at center. Plus, The Man? That's 'Reke over in Sac.

I think it will be either Wall or Cousins considering the guys around them.
Griffin has Baron, Kaman, Eric Gordon.
Wall has Blatche and Arenas and not much else.
Cousins has Tyreke (sorry JT you're damn inconsistent). Cousins should be the favorite.

Its either Wall or Griffin. Lets use the Wilt sucks logic here and say the Cousins is only dominating players who suck and are much shorter than him.

So Lebron Tweets that he thinks either Wall or Cousins will get ROY and you title the thread COUSINS FAVORITE TO WIN ROY.

Do you have a hard time reading things? First of all, it's Lebrons opinion. Second, that's not even what he said!

I want to see Cousins do what he's doing to NBA comp before I judge. The big men are always the worst part of summer leagues, whereas the guards always seem to have more NBA experience.

But DeMarcus is showing off this summer league. That game yesterday was just dominant.

Griffin, Wall, and Cousins are all great players but of course all we can watch is the summer league games so far. But Cousins is an absolute beast and I think he will be the ROY. Wall is a great player too but for some reason I see Gilbert taking alot way from Wall. Who knows though they all will probably deserve it by the end of the regular season.

Wall is a good player he turns over the ball way too much

He was unstoppable. It is summer league, but lets wait and see

+1.

Also, for everyone saying how Blake has to split time with Kaman... Huh? Is the PF spot not his to run with? Doesn't Cousins have to compete with JT, Sammy D, and Landry (and Whiteside possibly) for time?

I think he'll be productive, but let's not say he's the favourite over Wall and Griffin. I would probably take ET over him. Summer League doesn't mean a whole lot. He's playing with boys.

I agree that Demarcus Cousins is a beast...but not because Lebron said it.

Nah what's to say you can't use that logic on Wall or Griffin?

Besides, Cousins has gone up against Caracter, Monroe, O'Bryant, Koshwal. It's not like those guys are midgets.

Blake Griffin takes it i can bet anyone about that.
Wall should be all star this year with Rose and Rondo in East.
SacTown has Dalembert,Whiteside,JT,Landry and some other guys who will share minutes with Cousins.
Oh also i cant beleive nobody mentioned Tiago Splitter he will be the beast in Texas.

I do think Cousins will be a solid NBA player.

With that said, I am amazed at how many PSDers are getting their slurp on for him based off of a LeBron Tweet and a handful of summer league games. I want to see how his lack of conditioning translates to a regular season load before I annoint him a god.

I think Cousins wins it and pretty easily. Been saying for over a year this kid is and will be the best player out of this draft class.

I would put to much stock into Cousins this early. He has all the potential in the world, but hes imature and will be pushed on a nightly basis against much better competition. I picture him the same way I do Rasheed Wallace. Can dominate anytime he wanted to, but he had a screw loose in the head and was to lazy to do it consistantly.

Demarcus Cousins has been looking great in SL. I still think Wall wins ROY though.
