DeMarcus Cousins: Warriors are ‘most hated team in sports’

Adjust Comment Print

The Los Angeles Lakers made a splash this summer when they signed top free agent, LeBron James.

After missing almost a full year due a torn Achilles, the four-time All-Star makes his debut for the Warriors as they take on the Clippers in Los Angeles.

Kyrie Irving is known for his ball-handling and scoring, but he showed off his passing ability with this long behind-the-back dish to Marcus Smart, who cashed in the 3-pointer to complete the play.

"Kind of nervous about it, actually", Cousins told ESPN's Rachel Nichols. "I mean, they're gonna say what they have to say".

In anticipation of his long-awaited return, Showtime Sports today shared a clip from "The Resurgence", a video series that documented Boogie's return from season-ending achilles injury, including his decision to sign with "the most hated team in sports".

"They may hate him as well".

A 'super blood wolf moon eclipse' is happening this weekend

Cousins spoke to CBS about playing alongside the likes of Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and Draymond Green.

The four-time All-Star attempted to return from his Achilles injury a few weeks ago, sources told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. I'm ecited to see the process of integrating Cousins into the lineup and playing a lot of minutes. So, you know, the people that do know me, they know I can be very stubborn.

The Pacers missed the playoffs that season finishing with a 38-44 record, but with PG13 getting to play those six games, it set him up for a strong 2015-16 season where he was an All-Star averaging 23.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.9 steals in 81 games. "I guess he'll be on a minute restriction, I don't know how that works but once he starts upping his minutes I'm excited about that, and I think he will be in a good flow, but just relax a little bit".

To prepare for this season, Cousins says that he channeled a single by Kevin Gates called "Change Lanes".

"I'm in a different mindset than I ever was before", he said. "I'm moving forward. I'm leaving it on the floor every night. So you can't overstate what this guy is coming back from".
