The ultimate non-teammate with a serious injury...albeit very talented. Achilles tear for a large person difficult to overcome in a running and jumping sport.
He should be getting back to 80% sometime next June.
Lakers should have Leonard on their team before then, whom is preferable.

Hoping we hear from you often-especially when the Lakers are doing well! Good luck to you.

I was hoping Lakers didn’t get Cousins. He is toxic. Unfortunately the Lakers picked up Rondo, yet another player I’m not fond. I like the Lance pickup, reminds of Ron Artest.

I was hoping the lakers got boogie. Boogie was tired of being on a losing team in sac. He balled out in New Orleans before he got hurt. Once healthy the sky is the limit for GS.

Maybe not, but I do feel he has a toxic history. I can tell you this, I would not be real excited knowing what I know of these injuries to the Achilles. Its gotta be a year and a half before he is 80-90%.

Time to recheck. Losing Randle and Cousins to Warriors pretty much sealed it. The Lakers are the 6th best team. Those odds were based on landing others, which looks less and less likely.

They were better after he got hurt, for what it’s worth.

Cousins is like a Carmelo...all empty stats.

The Spurs aren’t trading him to LA unless they get everything, including Kuzma. So you may have to wait until next July.

Even with Leonard, they aren’t beating the Warriors. The Warriors will probably sign another All Star next year.

It would be stupid to trade for him this year. Keep Kuzma and Ingram, add Kawhi next summer as a free agent and give up nothing.

Use next season to build some chemistry and go balls out next summer free agency with the cap room.

You can tell Magic and Lakers aren’t ready to give up much for Kawhi in a trade. They just basically let Randle go, instead of doing a sign and trade.

I 100% agree that they should sacrifice nothing and wait patiently. Hope for a Deng trade/buyout and free up that cap space. Whats his salary, like 18 mil?

Both played on bad teams. The pelicans had an adrenaline shot when cousins got heart. AD played great but are they better without him no there not.

that was different. Trade vs FA

also, looks like cousins couldnt get an offer from anyone else. his agent called every team yesterday saying they would take the MLE minimum for 1 year.

Maybe so, but I still have an issue with how this all played out. It will take the Lakers 2+ years to be real contenders the way GS was/is allowed to be so stacked.

However, I believe the Lakers will be stacked in 3 years. So, enjoy the run GS...

FML, cant believe we picked up Cousins, his bad attitude will not mesh into the Warriors, WTF were they thinking.

I agree. Golden State an awesome team. I do think laker's supporting cast better than Cleveland's and we have a shot at the playoffs-prolly 5th or 6th in the division.

I read somewhere that Boston was also interested in him, not sure how true that is.

they were wanting to give him a 2 year MLE deal. Cousins wanted a 1 year prove it deal.

its not like they are doing anything that any other team cant do.

GSW just lucked out that their draft picks of Curry, Klay and Green turned into studs.

I see what the Celtics with Garnett, Pierce and allen or the heat with Lebron, Wade, Bosh and allen or the Cavs w/ Lebron, Kyrie and Love did as more of a black eye than GS. Bought, not built teams.

Or even the tried and failed Lakers with Lebron and PG or KD or Kawhi

and lets be honest here. Even if GSW didnt pick up cousins, the lakers still werent going to be any type of contenders. GSW, Houston, OKC are all leaps and bounds better than the lakers.

Agreed, the Lakers are not going to win the title next year. Is the hope in LA again, yes!
