Brooklyn Nets big man Mason Plumlee and Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins are competing for a spot on the Team USA roster. Judging on the talent of Cousins, you would think that this wouldn’t be a competition. Well apparently, Plumlee has been a pleasant surprise and reports say that Plumlee will likely make team over Cousins.
2 things from Team USA: post practice games between Durant/Harden/George are epic; Mason Plumlee likely to make team over DeMarcus Cousins

Obviously you know this has something to do with Cousins’ attitude. The coaches probably don’t think Cousins will like coming off the bench.
