Boogie breaks the NBA: Reactions to GSW getting Cousins

Essentially, the Warriors replaced starting center JaVale McGee, the "Shaqtin" A Fool' star who signed with LeBron's Lakers, with Cousins, an extreme upgrade at a position that has always been the lone weakness for the reigning champs. In 48 games, Cousins was averaging 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.6 blocks per game while shooting 75 percent from the free throw line.

In terms of his injury, the Warriors will give him all the time that he needs to get better - they proved past year that the regular season comes a distant second to being ready and healthy for the playoffs.

A day after LeBron James agreed to join the Lakers, the two-time defending champion Warriors upped the offseason ante in a massive way, reaching a stunning agreement with six-time All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins. There isn't any certainty that he will be the same player once he returns from the torn Achilles tendon, but there is no rush or pressure for him to return to the court before he's physically ready to do so next season.

The Warriors have added another star.

With James locked in for four years, and Leonard is a free agent in 2019 the desperation for the Lakers is gone.

However, it's certainly a risk that the Warriors are willing to take to acquire a superstar for just the mid-level exception.

Speaking of which, no one on the Warriors roster past year averaged more than nine rebounds per game last season. New Orleans beat the Houston Rockets the night night he went down to pick up their seventh win in the last eight games and improved their record to 27-21.

That's a tricky area to maneuver, so the Silver and Black might be better off finding a trade package before the season starts.

"I'd really like to be in the playoffs next year", co-owner Jeanie Buss said recently, "so that's what we're hoping for".

With the market now officially open, it's time for Johnson to live up to his name and work his magic to convince the likes of LeBron James and Paul George to bring their talents to California. He spent six and a half seasons in Sacramento before he was traded to New Orleans in February 2017.
