DeMarcus Cousins has averaged 32 games a season over the last three years. Whatever your take, they will be without him. It's a short career sometimes, and some people have to leave it without ever experiencing the accolades and sense of culmination we and they wanted to see.

The Lakers can make a deal with Carmelo Anthony for one yea. Let Cousin body heal up and let him play next year let's give Carmelo Anthony one more shot to prove himself just like Rondo prove himself and now teams believe in him again Rondo bounce around from a lot of teams because he didn't fit but he finally found him a team the Lakers it's where you can be yourself.

@tumani monik raw talent or ability to put the ball in the basket? Wade and Kyrie were assassin's for LeBron, now LeBron will have to close? I'll believe in the Lakers once they figure out how to work around LeBron's lack of defense, really score the ball, and pass more. 3 mega superstars won't win a chip, all 25 and 10 guys too. Lol I feel like people are really fishing out here, trying to find a team to stick to. No shame in becoming a clippers fans.

The Kings got better immediatly when they got rid of Cousins. He's the most overrated player in the NBA.
They gave Dominique those Ryan Hollins talking points lmao

This is foolish. Lose a very talented guy, to injury, might be good for them. Mind you Lebron isn’t playing the 3. He’s the starting point guard.

...and if you thought the Lakers finally settled down, just wait until they negotiate the rights to Dwight Howard as a roster replacement for Cousins.

Y’all being too sensitive about cousin. He tore his acl nobody is hating people are just stating facts and it’s something that the Lakers need to deal with and a good conversation piece. Dude is done in the league if I had to guess. Lakers need to cut him and start Javale, maybe pick up a young hungry center that will play hard and I cheap.

PG - Rondo SF - LBJ SG - Green PF - AD C - McGee Kuzma 6th player of the year... can play for PF and SF sub So I don't see that's bad.. very balance and good frequency!

The Lakers could really use Boogie because of his work ethics, his capabilities, and of his raw talent if and only if he's healthy and not keep getting hurt every single season...!!!

We don't need Cousins. That Golden State drama needs to stay up there. He injury prone and not we need going forward. Period

The other dude just out shined Will Cain. Cain just said that you are ALWAYS better off with more talent which makes no sense. As a matter of fact I agree that the Lakers are better without Cousins.. There is more to winning than just having players with talent. If that was the case Carmelo Anthony would have already been signed. You have to fit into the team concept and accept your role or else your impact will be more negative than positive in most cases.

This guy Foxworthy doesn't seem to understand that people, especially skilled people, perform better at something when they're comfortable. AD is uncomfortable at the 5, and James is uncomfortable at the 4....

Maybe boogie needs to lose weight? I could be totally wrong but he’s a big fella and that probably doesn’t help especially the older you get.

Demarcus Cousins deserves to be injured. It's all his fault. Cousins is washed up and needs to lay low on the cheeseburgers.

He was in the best shape of his life this year & at worst he'd have been a top 4 player & 3pt shooter on the team while anchoring the bench. Now LA gonna scramble to find someone.

I might make the argument that since they never played WITH him and had a set gameplan with him in the lineup and had been playing and relying on him in there they may not have lost ANYTHING. Say for example they lost him in the middle of a playoff series and had to entirely switch up their gameplan on the fly, that's definitely a loss. But never having technically "had him" in the first place/played with him/practiced with him and relied on him being there with his production, what can you say that they lost?
Blue Red

AD never played a full season, Bron in his 17th, right off the bat they lost depth & a piece that could've more than spared them. Guys like Bradley won't stay 100% either, LA is going to have some injuries to role players too. It's going to lead to AD-Bron breaking down faster as well as influencing teams and their roster moves. AD-McGee won't be nearly as hard to counter.
