EditorialsJoakim Noah Lakers should consider veteran following De Marcus Cousins’ injury

"I've told y'all before I don't take any of this for granted", Cousins said in June, during the NBA Finals when he and the Warriors lost in six games to Toronto.

Cousins missed all of the 2018-19 season following a ruptured Achilles and most of the 2019 playoffs due to a torn quadriceps.

He played just 30 games in his lone season with the Warriors after tearing his Achilles the year before. Cousins' former teammate, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, is among those in the National Basketball Association who are stunned and saddened by the big man's misfortunes.

Instead, he suffered a torn quad and didn't get a ring. He made an impact in the Warriors' two wins, but in the four losses, the 29-year-old struggled to find a rhythm.

And although Cousins had signed with the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency, Green was still cheering for the man they call Boogie to have a dominant year with the Lakers in 2019-20. "This is a small community". Golden State coach Steve Kerr - a US assistant - said he was devastated for Cousins.

The veteran has career averages of 21.2 points, 10.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

It's another tough blow for a player that was once considered one of the best centers in the league. "He's going to have to process it all and start all over again".

It also figures to give backup center JaVale McGee more time in the middle, potentially a major role if the Lakers elect to keep Davis at forward, with playmaker James another versatile threat.
