I came here as a kid and left as a man. As I stated many times, I’ve got people here I consider family.

Cousins then carried the ball out of the crowd and set it down in front of the New Orleans bench before the jump ball.“This was just as big a game for them as it was for us,” Cousins said. “We knew they would be juiced. We knew they would come out swinging and that’s exactly what they did.”He had faced the Kings once already since his February trade, in New Orleans on March 31, and scored 37 points while making 12 of 21 shots in the Pelicans’ 117-89 victory.“For him, he came here as a young kid, really. He’d been with this franchise the entire time,” coach Alvin Gentry said. “You have friends in the city, you have things that you’ve done just from a community service point of view that you had. And then very emotional when he left here. I was there when he got on the plane. I think people don’t realize, they look at these guys as something other than a 22- 25- 27-year-old kid, and that’s what they are. I don’t care how big they are, they’ve got the same emotions as everyone else has.“It’s tough, because it wasn’t his decision to leave. I think when that happens, it stings, it hurts initially. I think he has found himself in a positon where we really appreciate everything he brings to the table.”WEBBER TRIBUTEFormer Kings star Chris Webber worked the nationally televised game for TNT and received his own video highlight recognition and a standing ovation late in the first quarter.
