Morris was huge for the Lakers. Cousins wasn’t going to play, he got paid, and got a ring. He definitely shouldn’t shun the Lakers..
I don't disagree, from what I understand, Cousins and the Lakers parted on good terms. But did Cousins actually get a ring??
As a Laker fan, I don't think it is just wishful thinking that the Lakers have the strongest chance to land Cousins. They actually gave Cousins a ring, they kept relations good with Cousins. LA is in bad need of size while the Marc Gasol experiment isn't panning out. This won't get the Lakers over the top, but it will certainly patch a giant hole.
Purely my own speculation, but I suspect Cousins asked out of the Rockets rather than being cut, just so he can receive his ring in a Lakers uniform rather than on the next Lakers vs Rockets game.
