Any player that has experienced a serious injury requiring long term rehabilitation, should not expect any team to bust into their savings.  In typical fashion, the volatile and immature Cousins, storms out and accepts the tax player version of the MLE.  

NOLA will shed no tears.  This of course following a cheapskate offer to Rondo who more than exceeded a small salary.  There are reasons why so many teams just plan suck.  One is because their bottom line expectation conflicts with the expenditures to field a championship team.  The other is that you have bad decision makers.

On GSW's part, they made a meager investment for their amusement.  Gee! I wonder how this will work? Five Allstars is a first.  Conflict will have to wait until Cousins returns and it certainly appears he will not be ready this year.  How he fits in seems far removed. So there is no worry about how to get Cousins 18 FGA's

NOLA is still trying to build a team around AD but they just do not know how to do it.  


None of this should be such a concern for Celtics fans to let alittle stank into the conversation.  When we get to the championship series we will play whomever is left.

"Five Allstars is a first."

Seems it's not. Was reported the Celtics had five all-stars from the previous year on their 1976 team.


Celtics with Cowens, White, Havlicek, Silas and Charlie Scott ( was allstar previous year with the Suns)


I remember that team and year. Silas was so good during that time that they had to put a rebounder tough guy role player, him on the all star team. Cowens was at his peak, as the best defensive player in basketball according to SI, they described his style as fast contact/collisions at high speeds and airborne with intense pace. After Jabber, he was 2nd or 3rd best center with Bob Lanier also in the conversation, those guys were the top centers in those 70’s as well as Willis Reed, Wes Unseld and Elvin Hayes, who played together and were a great rival PF-C big combination that went against Cowens and Silas that year in ECF.

Then White was top guard in East with the great Walt Frazier, who could do it all, great defender and clutch shooter and scorer. JoJo was MVP of Finals in 76 and Frazier put on one of the greatest dominant performances in a game 7 vs Lakers and Jerry West in 70 with 36 points and 19 assists.

Not a bad era.

If and when Cousins returns the Warriors will be an interesting team to watch.

Did you know that Cousins has been playing for 9 years?

Did you no he has never been in a playoff game?

Did you know he turned the ball over 5 times per game last year?

Adding Cousins is an interesting problem to have.  The recovery time should put him back in play by December or January.

This is an ultimate low risk large reward situation for the Warriors.

Here is a link to an article that may be of interest.  It measures the before and after productivity of a few NBA players that had Achilles injuries.

Cousins walked away from a very reasonable $40 million/ 2 yr deal and he may live to regret not accepting it.

Cousins left a lot of money on the table and will only get it back if he is healthy in the future. Nerlens Noel beat him though. He turned down a four year deal with Dallas last year that would've paid him $70 million. Last week he signed a two year deal with OKC for a the veteran's minimum - two years for $3.75 million total. Bet his girlfriend kicked his ass up and down the block a few times.

I remember when a few Celtics fans had the hots for Nerlens.

Back in 2017 his former agent Happy Walters stated that a 4 yr $70 million offer was made. Walters believed it was a very solid offer. No blaming the agent on this blunder. Noel, not understanding the pull back coming in 2018 declined the offer and looks like a complete idiot. At the very least you would think that he should have considered his injury history.

Dallas must have been greatly relieved as Noel went on to play in just 30 games averaging 4.4 Points and 5.7 rebounds. As I have remarked, some of the best deals are the ones that do not go through.

Cousins cannot possibly replicate what he has done in the past even if he was 110% healthy.
