After adding DeMarcus Cousins earlier this week, the New Orleans Pelicans tried to weave in the franchise's most significant trade acquisition with the bacchanalia by posting a sign outside Smoothie King Arena that read, “Let's Boogie.” Having grown up two hours away in Mobile, Ala. – which he will proudly and quickly tell you is the original home of Mardi Gras – Cousins was familiar with the excitement outside. Cousins wasn't under any delusion that he was going to come to a team that struggled to win with Anthony Davis and immediately solve all of its problems.
