The wins for John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins haven't come with the same ease and certainly not the regularity in NBA as they did when the duo played together for one season at Kentucky.

Now in their third seasons in the league, Wall and Cousins have both joined teams in Washington and Sacramento, respectively, that have remained stuck in the lottery, which has been discouraging for both of them.

The way that they have responded to those difficult times has been much different, with Wall mostly avoiding expressing his frustration publicly and Cousins racking up suspensions and repeatedly getting disciplined for his outbursts with the Kings.

"It's tough for us right now," Wall said, "but it's something that you have to deal with, as long as you don't get used to losing so much and try to build on winning."
