My Follow-Up on Demarcus Cousins

For anybody who read my DeMarcus Cousins piece on TheScorecrow, available here, they would know that I believe he is not as big of an asset to the Warriors as analysts make him seem. In my debut article, I asserted my idea that Cousins’ Achilles injury may render him almost futile to the Warriors’ organization. With Boogie making his debut for Golden State against the Clippers on January 18 with 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists in 15 minutes, this follow-up piece will substantiate or negate the predictions I previously made about him six months ago.

New Orleans Pelicans: 2018 Season Preview

This past offseason was more disappointing than it was a success to the Big Easy. Losing DeMarcus Cousins to the Warriors, and Rajon Rondo to the Lakers, the Pelicans lost two key components to their teams that had decent success in the 2017-2018 season. Can the Pelicans recover from such a blow to their roster, or will New Orleans have another season of tanking and lost potential?

Why the Celtics Are Perfectly Poised to End the Warriors’ Fragile Dynasty

In the modern NBA, Dynasties always end quicker than expected. The Miami Heat big three only managed a couple of titles. Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant’s dominance with the Los Angeles Lakers ended abruptly. The Garnett-Pierce-Allen trio in Boston yielded just a single ring.
