And I used to love Cousins. He’s just not a fit here in any way.


I am not buying the bad fit story. Half of the Warriors board thoght he wsa a bad fit. He was not healthy and he forced a few shots. Our bench could not score at all. At leaat Cousins had the potential to score. I have no idea why Kerr did not make sure one of Curry and KD were not on the floor at all times. If you are going to sit KD, Curry and Klay at the same time then give me Cousins.


The only bad fit i saw was injury and the fack that he Was not JaVale.
Did he shoot too much? He was still getting his rhythm back and playing with a garbage offensive second unit so I had no problem with his shooting.

He could do everything Speights did better than Speights except take chargers.
He could do everything Zaza did better than Zaza.
His passing abilities were Bogut level, he just needed some more time with his teammates.
He brought an insde scoring game that is pretty much missing from the modern NBA. Zach Randolph, Drummond and Embiid can do a little something.

So what is the probkem? He is not a horrible shot blocker, better tgan Zaza.

I love JaVale. Who can catch a poorly thrown lob and direct it into thevhoop better than JaVale. But Kerr didn't love JaVale.

So even a health cousins can't run the floor any better than Zaza, Chriss can. I like having a mix of styles as my options at center.

Healthy Cousins woukd be great as a Warriors. But there is a problem. The Warriors can't afford healthy Cousins. Healthy Cousins may never exist again. I am not sure that I want injured Cousins. We already have injured Looney. Take injured Cousins and injured Looney and hope one of the 2 of them is healthy by playofff time?

Yeah, he was terrible. No idea why Kerr kept him on the court in the Finals. His career is over.

Who is your prefferrred 2nd option, injurrred Cousins or Quinn Cook?


Andrew Bogut looked awesome the entire series against Toronto.

Cousins is done. GSW can only have centers that are plus defenders.

56 year old Noordin Said and his mother both died of Covid 19. He was Cousins bodyguard and buddy. Cousins is upset. He was also Draymond Green's bodyguard.

I still figure NBA players are basicallly too young to have significant risk of dying from Covid-19. But NBA players can absolutely catch the disease and pass it to their parents causing their parents to die.

Warning, if you are over 50 don't go thinking it is safe to eat food from Mcdonalds drive through. The Internet and the government will tell you that nobody has ever been proven to catch Covid-19 from food. What they leave out is that there has never been any testing of whether Covid 19 can be caught from food. They also leave out that half of the people that catch Covid-19 have no idea how they caught the virus.

Mcdonalds in Oakland had an outbreak of Covid among their workers and their boss insisted that they keep working. Cooks may not be working under conditions as crowded as meat packers but they are working in crowded conditions and poor enough to live in crowded conditions. You have to assume your cook is contageous.

The government and internet say wash your hands. Then they say it is OK to stick something an infected cook has breathed on in your mouth. They say your stomach acid will kill the virus. Who cares about stomach acid when you can breath the virus off of the food and your tongue also has a high concentration of the receptors that Covid-19 needs too hook up with to infect a cell.

Player Name Min Poss P FGA TSA PTS eFG TS USG PPP PPS FG % SI
Stephen Curry 573 1220 102.0 236 253 319 60.2 63.0 20.6 1.28 1.27 45.8 0.537

Curry with Cousins in the game had 19.6pts per 75pos. He was a star and demanded the ball a alot. He killed flow and everthing did too slow. I couldnt watch Cousins and Curry/Kerr were too nice to him.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar is "only" 73; he's probably not a whole lot slower than Cousins on defense. Might still even be able to make a skyhook or two and likely available for the vet minimum. That probably makes about as much sense as signing Cousins with his injury history.
