DEMARCUS COUSINS AND ANTHONY DAVIS ARE THE NBA’S NEW ‘TWIN TOWERS’ The recently paired duo could be the ‘Fire and Ice’ the New Orleans Pelicans need

It’s been said that “The Lord works in mysterious ways.” DeMarcus Cousins believes such was the case for him when he unexpectedly became teammates with fellow NBA All-Star big man Anthony Davis for the now potentially powerful New Orleans Pelicans.

“I would be stressed out, pulling my hair out and just praying, praying, praying just to send me some help. Of course, things happen in different ways,” Cousins said.

With this new daunting big-man union, Cousins and Davis are the help each player sorely needed.

The Pelicans acquired Cousins and forward Omri Casspi in a trade with the Sacramento Kings on Feb. 19 for guards Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway and two draft picks. The shocking trade united the NBA’s top two big men. The last time the NBA had a dangerous “Twin Towers” like this was when All-Stars David Robinson and Tim Duncan, who won two NBA championships together, played for the San Antonio Spurs.

Nicknames are already coming for Cousins and Davis, too. Twin Towers is an easy one. Locals have thrown out, “The Twin Span,” referring to the I-10 bridge connecting New Orleans and Slidell. But an excited Cousins has a simple one that just might stick: “Fire and Ice.”

“We’re opposites. Got a little fire. Got a little ice,” Cousins said.

Said Davis: “He’s definitely the fire. That’s a perfect analogy.”

The description couldn’t be more accurate. Cousins is a bruising 6-foot-11, 290-pounder center with unique ballet balance and salsa dancer footwork at his dinosaur size. The three-time NBA All-Star is averaging a well-rounded 27.8 points, 10.7 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.3 blocks this season. Cousins also has a NBA-leading 17 technical fouls due to his well-documented emotional and fiery play that has set him at odds with referees, teammates and coaches. One more technical and the Mobile, Alabama, native is suspended for the next game. But his feistiness could come in handy as the Pelicans are known for being too cool, calm, soft and unwilling to cause a stir.
