If having a high standard produces expectations that we have to talk about, that’s a good problem to have,” Cousins said. “I hope we get to play for a lot of years where people really are putting a lot on us because they expect a lot out of us because we’ve shown we can do it.”After signing in Minnesota, Cousins fell well short of expectations last year. He knows this is the year he needs to play up to his contract.
