Video: DeMarcus Cousins has Draymond Green cleaning his pool
Golden State Warriors newcomer DeMarcus Cousins appears to be getting along with his new teammates just fine. So much so, that the 28-year-old has fellow Warrior Draymond Green cleaning his pool for him.
This is not a metaphor. Cousins just shared a video of Green literally cleaning his pool. By the looks of it though, the resident Warriors fire-starter did not appear to be doing a very good job.

We have no clue how this came about, but it would not be surprising to find out that Green lost some kind of a bet with Cousins that led to Green serving as pro-bono pool boy.
This was obviously done all in good fun, though, and it is a treat for Dubs supporters to see that the team’s newest member is fitting in just fine. Nevertheless, getting along off the court is one thing. Whether or not Cousins will be able to seamlessly integrate himself into the team on the basketball court is an altogether different matter.
Throughout his career, Cousins has always been his team’s number one option. He may have somewhat played second fiddle to Anthony Davis while with the New Orleans Pelicans, but an average of 25.0 points, 12.7 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per ballgame are hardly second-best.
Cousins will definitely slide down the pecking order with the Warriors with the likes of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson all in the mix. It will be intriguing to see how head coach Steve Kerr intends to incorporate Cousins in his system once the big man is able to fully recover from his Achilles injury.
