Warriors’ DeMarcus Cousins addresses his pending return

DeMarcus Cousins, Warriors

Golden State Warriors fans have been waiting for this day for a long time, but DeMarcus Cousins has been waiting even longer.

Cousins is on track to make his Warriors debut on Jan. 18 against the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center, and the All-Star big man spoke to local reporters on Thursday about it after practice.

It’s going to be an emotional moment for DeMarcus Cousins on Jan. 18. He’s going to be playing the sport he loves for the first time in a competitive setting since he tore his Achilles tendon last year. The long, grueling rehab process of an Achilles tear is not something everyone can overcome, but the finish line is nearing for Boogie.

When Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3 million deal with the Warriors in July, the entire league was shocked and fans outside of Golden State were outraged. The talented big man didn’t receive any offers in free agency, so he had to call Warriors general manger Bob Myers to see if the Dubs would take a chance on him.

Playing with Golden State gives DeMarcus Cousins a chance to win an NBA championship and possibly sign a lucrative free agent deal with another team in the summer of 2019 assuming he plays well in the postseason and shows he’s still a dominant player.
