Right when you thought the Warriors were already too good, they add another four-time All-Star to their lineup.
Through most of the first two days of NBA free agency, the talk was all about the Los Angeles Lakers, and everything they had going on in addition to LeBron James agreeing to come on a four-year, $154 million deal.
And then, DeMarcus Cousins and the Warriors decided there was too much talk about a team that missed the playoffs last season adding a player Golden State defeated in the Finals three of the last four seasons, and the news was reported that Boogie was headed to Oakland on a one-year, $5.3 million deal. So the Warriors are going to use their taxpayer mid-level exception to bring in a four-time All-Star since JaVale McGee left and agreed to join James on the Lakers.
The news of Cousins going to the two-time defending champions was a shock to many, but it also has even more people thinking the NBA season is already over and there is no need to play things out.
Check out some of the best reactions to Boogie joining the Dubs.
Luckily, the Warriors are gonna play so lazily in the regular season that you’ll end up doubting them anyway— Stephen Asian Smith (@PabloTorre) July 3, 2018
Part of me feels like LeBron should’ve just thrown in the towel and signed a one year, five mil deal with the Warriors— Charlotte Wilder (@TheWilderThings) July 3, 2018
Boogie signing with the Warriors is on some, “ALL Y’ALL GM’s wanna try to sign me on the cheap, like I’m not worth it because I’m coming off of an injury? Y’all wanna play the big homie like that? Okay...Watch what I’m about to do,” type sh*t. pic.twitter.com/kuwj0Wbkuu— L E F T, PhD (@LeftSentThis) July 3, 2018
