After the last two games, I would bench Cousins. I would make him sit next to Clfford Ray and watch. Cousins glided around the floor in a fog most of the last two games which is unacceptable. He needs to decide if he is going to play like a professional or take nights off. I agree with others that he may never earn the role of leader on this team or any other for that matter. But he needs to get up for competing every game.
