DeMarcus Cousins sent shockwaves throughout the NBA Monday night when it was revealed that he would be taking his all-star talents to the Bay Area and joining the already stacked Golden State Warriors. ESPN reports that Boogie agreed to sign a 1-year deal worth $5.3 million dollars.
Although he’s recovering from an achilles injury that could set him back until December or January, Boogie will eventually be joining a starting lineup that will include Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, & Draymond Green, 5 legit all-stars. And if that’s not enough, they also have a Finals MVP with Andre Iguadala waiting to come f the bench as well.
Once the news broke Cousins’ signing, Steph Curry welcomed him with a humbling tweet, saying “The 3rd splash Brother ???????. Let’s go @boogiecousins.”
However, the rest the country outside the Bay Area was pretty damn upset with the NBA & Warriors right now for “ruining” next season already. Twitter erupted with people going f at Adam Silver and the NBA for allowing such a lopsided team to be assembled. Most people believe its making the league worse & straight up unfair overall.
