  1. Couldn't you also say you can't take anything away from the game against simmons? lakers had to go bigger.
  2. Yes, he's been impressive. Remember, it's not like I'm rooting for him to fail. I want him to succeed....but lose to the Raps in the Finals!
  3. His player blurb now says he's 'dealing with a concussion'.
  4. I do see how with those stats it is encouraging if you just want immediate results. I just don't think GS will rely on him for much scoring...could get some sweet kick-out ast, but I really don't know.
  5. no worries man. A major part of why I don't think he will avg >10 is usage. Will he really be asked to shoulder a big scoring load with the firepower GS has? will he get >15-20min/game?
  6. You really need to calm down there. I said it wasn't my post, so if the #s are wrong, then they are, but they aren't 'mine'. i really can't be bothered to check at this point, i really don't want this thread to become a stupid back and forth like a ton of threads on here this yr. Brand significantly declined, and the injury played a big part. Explosiveness is never regained to pre-injury levels. Brand is a 'big man', like cousins, so they are at least more comparable than other comparisons.
  7. So you just disagree with me stating that he won't score a lot of pts as soon as he comes back, but you agree he will dramatically decline in the yrs after, like Brand?
  8. Will Cousins be asked to take on as large a scoring role as the guys on that list? GS wants him for the playoffs, they will ease him in IMO. The NBA speed/pace of game is a lot harder than the D League or playing against a half-hearted teammate in a full tracksuit and hoodie. Again, I am not rooting for him to fail, I want him to be great again. I feel so bad for him, as he was on the verge of a max contract and shedding the label of best player to never make the playoffs. Then all teams pass up on him except GS, who gives him a 5.3 mil contract.
  9. https://theinjuryinsight.com/demarcus-cousins-achilles-rupture/ Good injury analysis. I can't imagine going from an assured max contract to basically every team passing up on you except gs for < 6 mil. I'm not the only one who is skeptical.
  10. i would like to be surprised, i never wish an injury to a player. but based on the injury, his position/play, the history of achilles injuries to big men, and his min restriction, considering gs doesn't really need him as a go-to scorer to make the playoffs, i think 10pts/game would be tough. edit: not my redditt post.
  11. whoa there, calm down. i don't know where you get the idea i am being disgusting, awful or whatever. i didn't wish injury upon him, or prolonged recuperation, i was merely stating an opinion. u really need to relax there.
  12. I'd be surprised if he averages >10 pts/game. Bball players, esp big men, are truly Achilles when it comes to that tendon.
  13. Raps are nice, even w/o KL. Would be a nice finals.
