Francisco Garcia stepping up (and schooling Cousins)

There's a good article in the Sacramento Bee about Francisco Garcia becoming the leader of the Kings.  Granted, the Kings still suck, but at least 'Cisco is doing what he can to help a young team improve.  Here are a couple of tasty quotes...

"...though he stands only 6-foot-7 and weighs 195 pounds, the oldest (30) and longest-tenured King isn't afraid of anyone. He stretches up onto his toes, gets up onto the soapbox, and goes face to face with beefy, 6-11 rookie DeMarcus Cousins.

'Cisco has done everything to me,' Cousins said with a grin. 'He yells at me, tells me to calm down, doesn't want me throwing my headband. He can motivate me, get me mad as well. But he knows what it's like, too, because he used to have a real temper, and he's been there for good and bad times. We listen to him.'"

"...Remember when a swaggering young Cisco would yank his jersey out of his shorts and smirk when the refs weren't looking? How many times did Geoff Petrie lecture about macho behavior, only to see the stunt repeated during the following game?

'I was pretty bad,' García admitted with a grin. 'I was just young. That's what I try to tell these guys. Keep listening, and keep working.'"

With E5 riding the pine and T-Will still screwin' around a bit, it's good to see at least one Cardinal making things happen in the pros.  The whole article is worth a read... check it out at: http://www.sacbee.com/2011/01/04/3297328/ailene-voisin-garcias-leadership.html#ixzz1A81blQ8B
