You're kidding right?

Cousy was one of the best passing pgs in history. Some of the top passers in the last 15-20 years studied Cousy and emulated many things he did.

Sure his fg% is crappy but the league as a whole shot quite a bit lower than what the NBA is like today. Sorry but saying he would be a "D-league player at best" is a completely moronic statement to make. Considering you have guys like Rondo and Rubio doing just fine in the league, Cousy would be just fine.
