The Unforeseen Consequence of DeMarcus Cousins’ Injury

I’ve always been a big fan of DeMarcus Cousins.

I understand that’s not a particularly universal opinion – his reputation has always one that takes into consideration supposed character problems and volatility.

But he’s an incredibly talented basketball player and incredibly passionate about what he does.

Could DeMarcus Cousins be the Heat’s Next Reclamation Project?

Jacari McRae | July 4th, 2019

Last summer, DeMarcus Cousins gambled on himself by accepting the Golden State Warriors’ $5.3 million mid-level exception in hopes of receiving a big payday this summer. After missing most of this past regular season recovering from his Achilles injury, Cousins returned and played in 30 regular season games.

In my debut article, I asserted my idea that Cousins’ Achilles injury may render him almost futile to the Golden State Warriors organization. With Boogie making his debut for Golden State against the Clippers on January 18 with 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists in 15 minutes, this follow-up piece will substantiate or negate the predictions I previously made about him six months ago.

David Lehr | January 21st, 2019

I know what you’re thinking: Dear Lord, make this debate stop! Truly, this is one of those arguments that is a vicious cycle and one that will never die. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a correct answer; let’s assume the 1996 Chicago Bulls and present-day Golden State Warriors are playing in the Finals, and check out how these teams stack up player-by-player.
