DeMarcus Cousins turned 23 years old today. That’s incredible when you think about these numbers: 12th in the NBA in per-minute scoring, seventh in rebounding rate and a solid PER number despite having to consistently create his own shot in a faulty Sacramento offensive system.

The Kings are still a really bad team, and Cousins is developing a not-so-lovable on-court rep, but he’s still one of the most intriguing talents in the NBA, a force of nature that hasn’t come into his own yet.

Cousins might be celebrating his birthday on vacation right now. We’re going to do things a bit differently. Here are the 10 best plays so far of his young NBA career.

10. DMC Packs One On HAMED HADDADI’s Head
This makes me feel like I’m watching a video game. Haddadi probably feels the same way.

9. DMC Goes Between MARIO CHALMERS’ Legs
Okay, we have to dip this one a few points just because Cousins obviously traveled after retrieving the ball. The move wasn’t completely clean, either, but that’s okay because DMC cleaned it up and pulled it off another time against Atlanta. You’ll be seeing more of this move later…
