In an interview with ESPN, Golden State Warriors star DeMarcus Cousins made it very clear that he’s now back and ready as ever to play in the NBA.

Cousins shocked the entire world last summer when he decided to sign a one year deal worth $5 million with the Warriors. He had previously been on the New Orleans Pelicans as the result of a trade from the Sacramento Kings involving Buddy Hield.
The trade never came to full fruition, as Cousins needed surgery on his leg halfway through the season. The Anthony Davis and Cousins experiment never worked because it never had the chance to work. They would’ve been a very tough team to beat in the playoffs.
But now, with the Warriors, Cousins has the chance to add the first ring and his first playoff success to his resume.
It was announced a week or so ago that he would be making his comeback on January 18th against the Los Angeles Clippers in an away game at Staples Center.
The Warriors could really use his presence as their starting center as they’ve struggled to consistently win. Teams are beating them with dominant centers, and the Warriors haven’t had an answer.
Not only that, but Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are having the worst seasons of their respective careers. Green seems to have lost a step defensively and can’t hit from beyond the arc with consistency.
On the other hand, Thompson is having the worst three-point shooting season of his career and is settling for midrange jumpers outside of the offense.
