Former New Orleans Pelican DeMarcus Cousins Returns to the NBA
DeMarcus Cousins is still good at basketball...
Over a year after tearing his Achilles in his final game as a New Orleans Pelican, Cousins returned to the floor last night for his new team, the Golden State Warriors.
Yes, those Golden State Warriors that are already as stacked as an NBA All Star Team.
Cousins first game back was a solid performance too, putting in 14 points, with an emphatic dunk for his first bucket as a Warrior, first bucket back, and first points for the Warriors in their 112-94 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Pelicans were probably not as excited as Warriors fans last night. They let Cousins leave town, and take a $5.3 million deal (pretty cheap deal) with Golden State. Now the Pelicans are in the middle of an up-and-down season, where Anthony Davis has been playing out of his mind, but winding up injured often too. Davis might be in the middle of his audition to leave Nola, which might not have been the case if Cousins would have stayed.
