Jaren Jackson Jr. reacts to DeMarcus Cousins joining the Warriors
Jaren Jackson Jr., the fourth overall selection in this year’s NBA Draft by the Memphis Grizzlies, was playing in the NBA Summer League when the DeMarcus Cousins-to-Warriors news broke out. After the game, the reporter shared the news with him. His reaction could easily have been everyone’s response.

Jackson Jr. was actually coming off his debut in the Summer League. They were up against the Atlanta Hawks. He finished the game with an impressive 29 points, together with eight 3-pointers, and more importantly, a 103-88 win.
He even beat the buzzer at the half as seen in the clip below. At halftime, his 3-point tally was already at four.

Jackson Jr.’s reaction pretty much mirrors all of us. The Warriors were already stacked in the 2014-15 season when they were crowned as world champions and won 73 games the following season.
Then, seemingly out of the blue, Kevin Durant decided to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder to join the Warriors, adding more heft to the 73-win team. And as already forged in history, the Warriors have won back-to-back titles. Over the last four years, they have been heralded as champions thrice.
Now, with the addition of Cousins, who knows how many more rings they’ll win in the next few years?
