Video: Warriors thank DeMarcus Cousins with video tribute
Heart & determination.
— Golden State Warriors (@warriors) July 13, 2019
Cousins joined the Dubs last summer, but he was only able to return last February as he recovered from the torn left Achilles he suffered during his stint with the New Orleans Pelicans. It was a difficult path for Cousins, who admitted in multiple occasions his frustration about his injury and recovery.
While Boogie wasn’t able to return to his old, dominant self last season with the Warriors, he still gave the Dubs significant production. He averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 30 regular season games, helping Golden State top the Western Conference.
Unfortunately, his first playoffs appearance didn’t go so well after sustaining a quad injury in the first round that kept him out until the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
The 28-year-old will now look for a new beginning and another shot at the NBA title with the Purple and Gold franchise. His time with the Warriors isn’t what he hoped it would be, but one year removed from his injury, he has every opportunity to get back to his All-Star form.
