DeMarcus Cousins Is A Golden State Warrior

Published

on

The Golden State Warriors just keep getting better. After signing DeMarcus Cousins to a one year 5.3 million dollar contract, the Warriors all but sealed their fate as next years champions.

Despite Cousins suffering a devastating achilles injury on January 26 of this year, he has positioned himself for a slow and steady rehabilitation process after joining the Warriors. It’s hard to fathom that Cousins, a two time All NBA Second Team selection added to hands down the best team in the league.

This move has to be the smartest of Cousins career. With speculation about the severity of his injury and time needed for rehabilitation, Golden State was the perfect fit. If Cousins is even 75 percent by the end of the season he is in for a massive pay day.

Cousins newfound range from three point territory had coined him the nickname “the third splash brother” by none other than his new teammate Steph Curry.

Kevin Durant also seemed to enjoy trolling his new teammate by posting a picture of Cousins trying to enter the Warriors locker room last season.

Next year is shaping up to have the best Warriors team yet. It will be interesting to see what teams on the fringe of contender-ship do in the coming days.

Warriors Expected to Pick Up Damian Jones’ Option

The Golden State Warriors are expected to pick up the fourth-year team option on center Damian Jones prior to Wednesday’s deadline to make the move, according to Bay Area News Group’s Mark Medina.

By executing the move, Golden State would add $2,305,057 in guaranteed money to the books for 2019-2020, and will increase the projected tax bill, boosting them well over the luxury tax threshold if the team brings back superstars Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, who are both pending free agents.

Jones has performed well during his time on the court this season, averaging 6.0 PPG, 2.4 RPG, and 1.4 BPG in 8 games, all starts.

Warriors’ Klay Thompson Discusses Big Night

Published

Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson broke out of his early season slump in a major way on Monday night, by draining 14 treys en route to 52 points in 26 minutes , breaking the NBA record set by his teammate Steph Curry.

“I just knew I was due for a big night,” Thompson said, according to ESPN’s Nick Friedell. “I just knew it.”

“It’s the best feeling,” Thompson said of his locked in shooting performance “Something I haven’t felt in the first six, seven games. To snap out of a slump with the record, I couldn’t ask for a better way to do it. And I’m just going to continue this momentum on Wednesday, and it’s one of the best feelings in basketball when you touch the ball and feel like it’s going in every time.”

Thompson credited his teammates, and the system they play in, for being able to accomplish the feat.

“I really believe, I don’t know if I would have been able to break the records I have got in my past, just like tonight, without the system I play in or the team I’m with or the guys I play with,” Thompson said. “Because they knew even before I went out for the second half. Steph looked at the box score and said, ‘Go get it.’ And that just shows you the unselfishness that is within him. Same with KD and Draymond and DJ and everyone else that was out there on the floor trying to find me and get me good looks.”
