I don't want to put words in DeMarcus Cousins' mouth. Not just because I don't know exactly what he was thinking as he stood with there looking like he just caught a whiff of fresh baby shit before walking off with an expression that seemed to say "this fuckin' guy...", but because the words will probably be a lot funnier coming from DeMarcus when he inevitably alludes to this clip himself. If there's one person that holds his tongue for no one it's Boogie so there's likely a hilarious soundbite - that I couldn't possibly outdo - somewhere in our immediate future.
I will say though. If I had to guess, DeMarcus Cousins is probably just waiting for Kevin Durant to say what he has managed to avoid saying all offseason - he went to Golden State because they have an EXCELLENT chance to win a championship. I don't doubt that he wanted a change of scenery and felt that the tensions between him and Russell Westbrook had reached a breaking point. I know Northern California looks mighty enticing when you've spent the last nine years in Oklahoma City. There are undoubtedly better business opportunities out there for him in Silicon Valley. Surely the fact that the Golden State Warriors locker room seems like a hootin', hollerin' good time played a big factor in his decision. Still - at the end of the day - he wouldn't be there if it wasn't for the fact that they are a great fucking basketball team.
If we were in some alternate universe where the Sacramento Kings - a team whose location could provide the exact same benefits as Oakland - were an extremely cohesive franchise that just needed one more big name free agent to make them a mid-tier contender do you think they would have been on Kevin Durant's radar? Fuck no.
You know it, I know it, Boogie knows it, and KD knows it. Even if you don't want to go as far as calling him a "ring chaser" you can still acknowledge that he willingly put himself in the best position to get a ring. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It would just be nice if he finally acknowledged the obvious, because he can beat around the bush all he wants but he can't hide from the truth. Until he stops trying to he can expect people like myself and DeMarcus Cousins to be left shaking our damn heads.
Update: ....or not. Whatever.
