DeMarcus Cousins blasts critics who questioned his decision to join Warriors

Share

LeBron James agreeing to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers on Day 1 of free agency instantly became the biggest talking point of the period.

Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown (7) is defended by New Orleans Pelicans forward DeMarcus Cousins (0) during the second half at TD Garden. There was no offer. You don't want to ruin it taking a chance on a damaged player. There is also no pressure for him to be back on the floor at the start of the season as the team has shown that they can win a championship behind the play of their four other All-Stars in Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. We got answers like, "We don't believe it's is a good fit" or, 'We got to see what we're doing with our roster right now.' Like just kind of bulls-t answers. If it's positive and I feel it will help and benefit me and you know the situation I'm in, you're close to the situation, yes, I take that in and I let it register.

Cousins, of course, caught some flack for joining the already-loaded Warriors. His teammates from Team USA were all on board to have the center join them.

"This is my ace of spades", Cousins said earlier in the clip about his decision.

He goes on to describe signing with the Warriors as his "nuclear bomb" and a "last resort" rather than signing with a bad team for more than the $5.3M he'll receive next year with Golden State.

Non-Warriors fans can only hope this duo provides some classic hilarious National Basketball Association moments, or else watching this team run through the league is going to be even more painful than the last few years. "Yeah, I could have probably got a contract - a decent contract - from a bad team". I'm already fighting a career-ending injury.

"I wasn't really looking for a specific answer to get through it", Cousins said during his Warriors' introductory press conference Thursday. "I don't give a (expletive)". I'm saying it now cause I've seen a reaction, but I didn't give a f-. But me and CJ have that type of relationship where we rap about all that type of stuff. "There's some motherf-ers out there that are probably ripping their hair out, and I love it". This is just another test for me to overcome.

"I've been through so much adversity, if I sat there and dwelled on those moments, where the f*** would I be right now?" I don't need anybody feeling sorry for me. I walk around with my head high, I walk around comfortable.
