DeMarcus Cousins' first Warriors points came on this massive dunk

DeMarcus Cousins' first Warriors points came on this massive dunk

The Golden State Warriors might be harder to dislike than some of the powerhouses that have dominated the US sporting landscape in the past, but DeMarcus Cousins believes they are now the most hated team in sports.

"It was probably one of the hardest things physically and mentally that I've been through", Cousins says, as seen in the clip embedded below.

Having won seven of their last eight games, the Warriors have well and truly put their early season bumps behind them.

Cousins is coming off a serious Achilles' injury dating back to last season.

He hoped to re-sign with the franchise but claimed his former team didn't offer him a deal before signing a one-year, $5.4-million contract to join the Warriors. You know they hate Kevin.

Cousins, who hasn't played since he tore his left Achilles' tendon on January 26, 2018 while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans, rallied to return a few weeks back but backed off when the team said he'd be on limited minutes, according to Yahoo Sports. Despite it being Cousins' first game with his new teammates, head coach Steve Kerr will start the veteran big man in his team debut. With Cousins ready to be activated, the Warriors are only missing center Damian Jones, who is out indefinitely with a pectoral injury. "These are veterans players and they know what it takes to win in the playoffs". Actually, they may hate him, as well. "I think everything has just increased and gotten better". "So you can't overstate what this guy is coming back from". "Once you realize you are healed, like, don't think about it". What aspect of this are you most interested in monitoring?

The league should definitely be on notice with the Warriors playing championship level ball again and to make matters worse for their opponents, the Dubs have been sitting on a not so secret weapon in Boogie Cousins that they're scheduled to deploy tomorrow night. "I don't like to be proved wrong". I'm moving forward. I'm leaving it on the floor every night.
