The Golden State Warriors shocked the basketball world when they signed heavily touted free agent, Demarcus Cousins.
A four-time NBA All Star and four-time All-NBA selection, there’s a lot of pressure for Cousins to succeed.
Cousins is coming off of a serious Achilles’ injury that will likely sideline him until January or February of the upcoming season.
When he does come back, some NBA pundits wonder how he’ll gel with a stacked Warriors team that includes Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Kevin Durant. “It’s a team full of high IQs,” DeMarcus Cousins told me.
“I believe everyone on our team has a very high IQ when it comes to the game of basketball. All of us know how to play the game of basketball.”
Cousins has never even played in the playoffs during his eight seasons in the league. Assumedly, this season will be his first shot. He’s excited for his team this coming season. “We got guys with the same characteristics that– it’s like play-doh,” he told me.
“You can mold them into whatever you want them to be.”
