Golden State Warriors star DeMarcus Cousins (still feels weird to say that) scrimmaged during practice. He still may be a couple months away from playing in the regular season, but he seems to be right on schedule with his rehab coming back from injury.

In this short video, it seems like Cousins is moving pretty well. The crazy part is, is he is dunking already in this stage of rehab.
Cousins is coming back from a ruptured Achilles, which kept him out the rest of last season with the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Warriors took a chance and signed Cousins this summer, making news across the world, especially on NBA Twitter.
Cousins last past season with the Pelicans averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 blocks and steals per game. He shot 47 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from three-point range.
When Cousins comes back at some point this season, he will add a totally new dynamic to the team and one they never had before, and one the league has never seen.
This will be a dominant, forceful and scary team when he comes back.
This is a great sign for the Warriors team and fan base, but not exciting for the rest of the league when he comes back.
It will be interesting to see how Cousins meshes with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and the rest of the team when he comes back and plays regular minutes.
The Warriors in this dynasty never really had a dominant center like Cousins in the fold, it could take some time for there to be chemistry between all the players when he plays regular minutes.
This will be a storyline worth following later on during the season to see how all of this works out.
