I just had the most horrifying flashback watching Cousins diving to keep that jump ball inbounds: different kind of play, but that's exactly how he tore his Achilles.
 
Grant Napear’s DeMarcus sense is going wild right now as the post game show is giving him props.
LOL!!!

If DMC returns to form physically... he's so perfectly placed to torment us for years and it could be a kind of career defining story line tbh... even though I am in favor of the trade (retrospectively). I could see him settling in to the W's pretty well.

You can take that IF out of the equation.

He’s NBA conditioning away from being the exact same guy he was pre-injury. Only a better version because he’s now surrounded by all that talent.

He was never as selfish on court player. At all. Kind of messes up my rivalry though because it gives me one less reason to hate the w's. I'd actually be really happy if Demarcus won a few rings with them. Maybe we'll trade off like the Lakers and Celtics in the 80s.

Outside of the 8 v 1 in playoff scenario there’s no way I’m ever rooting against the guy. He deserves every second of winning basketball he’s getting.

They don’t have any money to keep him

Posting this here, instead of CTDWAT, because it's more about Cousins that the game, in general:

Cousins got cooked tonight, but I think there are some silver linings to take away from this game, that are going to positives for him moving forward. Kerr played him down the stretch, which showed two things:

  1. Cousins' rotations through his first ten games of the season have had more to do with his conditioning than his role; Boogie not playing down the stretch of games has not been a function of not trusting him in crunch time.
  2. Despite playing poorly for most of the game, Kerr had the confidence to go with Cousins on the floor in a close game. That's going to pay off later in the season, I think.
Yeah, you definitely see where Cousins' lack of lateral mobility is going to make them vulnerable but, as I heard mentioned by an analyst last week (I think it might have been Doris Burke, but I can't remember), the Warriors really only need DeMarcus Cousins to be All-Star DeMarcus Cousins™ for, maybe, three games in the entire playoffs. Like, if he can go head-up against Jokic one time in the conference finals, and give them two games against whomever comes out of the east, they're going to win this thing going away.

I'd just like to shout out the Golden State beat writers, for letting it be known early yesterday evening that Cousins was going to be held out of the Portland game. I've got a busy day ahead of me tomorrow, and I appreciate knowing that I don't have to waste a minute of my evening watching the Warriors, and can get that extra sleep, instead.
