A day after LeBron James rocked the NBA by joining the Los Angeles Lakers, the Golden State Warriors, NBA champions three of the past four years, made a stunning addition of their own. All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins agreed to a one-year deal worth $5.3 million with the Warriors. Golden State can now start five All-Stars if coach Steve Kerr so chooses.
Here’s what they’re saying about Cousins and the Warriors:
“In a move straight out of a poorly designed video game, the Warriors — when healthy — can add a fifth All-Star to their starting lineup for less money than the New York Knicks just agreed to pay Mario Hezonia.”
