Stephen Curry showed that being an NBA MVP is an attainable goal if you work hard and perfect your craft. DeMarcus Cousins believes he’s next.

During a discussion with Bleacher Report, Boogie made it clear he can see the MVP there for him to grab.

“Reachable, man? It’s mine to grab."

Since being selected fifth overall in 2010, Cousins and the Kings have never won more than 30 games.

With general manager Vlade Divac bringing on some tough veteran talent like Caron Butler, Marco Belinelli, and Rajon Rondo, Cousins can see the light now.

“You’ve got guys who know how to play the game, guys that know the game,” Cousins said. “Coming out and building chemistry is even easier. Trying to do that with younger guys? They’re trying to figure out their game and learn how to play.

“To have playoff expectations, it’s an exciting feeling. It’s one I’ve never felt.”

In 59 games last season, Cousins averaged a double-double, scoring 24.1 points a game (fifth in NBA) and 12.7 rebounds, on 46.7 percent shooting from the field.

Boogie also was a Western Conference All-Star and All-NBA Second team.
