Names like Stephen Curry, James Harden, LeBron James and Anthony Davis have all been mentioned among past and future MVP debates.  There’s someone else however who believes the award is theirs for the taking, Sacramento Kings star DeMarcus Cousins.

via Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding:

The topic is the 2015-16 NBA MVP award and whether it could be reachable for DeMarcus Cousins.

“Reachable, man?” Cousins told Bleacher Report, his voice rising high. “It’s mine to grab.”

“It’s going to take a full team effort,” Cousins said. “I’ll try to play at a high level and bring my team along with me.”

New teammate Rajon Rondo floated the same idea during Kings media day, telling reporters: “Not to put any pressure on him, but I expect nothing less but MVP.”

Cousins is indeed one of the best big men in the game but he will need to keep his attitude in check and the Kings have to perform A LOT better than they have in the past seasons.  Though the MVP award is an individual accomplishment, many people factor in how well the team is doing overall when choosing a candidate.
