DeMarcus Cousins ACL injury

Turns down $40/2y from NOP. Achilles, quad, knee.

Signed cheap with the Warriors, didn't get the ring. Signed cheap with the Lakers, gets injured in pre-season.

Tough run.

Interesting to look at his year-by-year stats. First three seasons he was sub-20% from three on minimal shots. Didn't hit one year after. 25% year after that. Last few years, he's been 35-37% 3P before 27% with GSW.

This is what happens when your ego is bigger than your game!

Was always a locker room problem hence he wasn't getting any calls after he declined the NOP offer which in hindsight was an above market deal he should have taken!

Cousins will now be getting vet minimum contracts at best for the rest of his career.

That's a shame. Had potential to be a real X factor for the Lakers.

Video of the injury. Doesn't look like any contact.

Reality - This is what happens when your ego is bigger than your game!

What are you talking about mate, the blokes done his knee has nothing to do with his ego.
