DeMarcus Cousins gives away smart suitcases to Warriors teammates

DeMarcus Cousins, Warriors

What do you get when you add an NBA superstar to a group that has four other NBA superstars? Evidently, the teammate of the year. And that’s what DeMarcus Cousins has become for the Golden State Warriors this season.

The Warriors are locked as the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference Playoffs and hope to make quick work of the Los Angeles Clippers in a first-round series.

The reigning champs will be on their way to Los Angeles for Games 3 and 4 against the Clippers on Wednesday, and Cousins has the Dubs rolling in style (h/t Ali Thanawalla of NBC Sports Bay Area):

Cousins, 28, will play in his first career postseason game Saturday night after nine years of tarrying with the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans. An Achilles tear incurred last January prevented him from appearing with the 6-seeded Pelicans last season.

In 30 games played this year with the Warriors since returning from injury, Cousins is averaging 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.5 blocks, and 1.3 steals. While the numbers don’t do him justice, “Boogie” remains one of the best bigs in the NBA.

Clearly, sharing the ball with an Olympic-caliber lineup is a slippery slope. Which could lead to locker room issues or other interior situations of that nature.

But that doesn’t seem to be the case for a franchise that has steamrolled into the playoffs yet again.

Cousins is just showing his appreciation for being apart of that at this point.

Cousins reportedly retailed the suitcases for $690 – overall spending $11,040 on his Warriors teammates for what should be another long and loquacious title run.
