Draymond Green says DeMarcus Cousins ‘can do anything’ after making it out of Mobile, Alabama

Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green knows DeMarcus Cousins isn’t in the best of moods right now and probably feels like his NBA career is over.

Cousins tore his left ACL during a pick-up game in Las Vegas and will miss the entire 2019-20 season. This is the third serious injury Cousins has suffered in his left leg.

Boogie tore his Achilles during the 2017-18 season, tore his left quad in the 2019 playoffs and now has to rehab an ACL tear. It’s just been a brutal couple of years for Cousins, who signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer after playing with the Warriors last season.

Draymond Green, though, believes Cousins can overcome this latest setback because the All-Star center made it out of Mobile, Alabama — one of the toughest places to grow up in America.

“He made it out of Mobile, Alabama,” Green said, via ESPN. “The NBA is tough, very tough to get to, very tough to stay in.

“But he made it out of Mobile, Alabama. If he can do that, he can do anything.”

Last season for the Warriors, DeMarcus Cousins averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 30 games while shooting 48.0 percent from the floor, 27.4 percent from beyond the arc and 73.6 percent from the free-throw line.

To suffer an Achilles and ACL tear in the same leg is devastating. The NBA community is hoping DeMarcus Cousins doesn’t call it quits after this ACL injury, although frankly, no one would blame him.
