DeMarcus Cousins joined the Warriors in free agency, and NBA Twitter is ready to shut down the league
LeBron James had his moment in the NBA free agency spotlight, but Monday night belonged to DeMarcus Cousins, who by agreeing to join the Golden State Warriors on a one-year, $5.3 million deal. Cousins is coming off an Achilles injury that is expected to sideline him until at least December, but once he returns to the court the Warriors will have a starting lineup of five All-Stars.
Needless to say, some people don’t exactly think this is fair — especially after Kevin Durant ruffled some feathers when he joined the Warriors in the summer of 2016.
Even Stephen Curry could do nothing but laugh at the notion that Cousins would be joining him in Golden State.
As usual, NBA Twitter was calm and measured with its reaction, being sure to take all factors into consideration before passing judgment. Just kidding. They basically said it’s time to blow up the NBA. Here are some of the best reactions:
Needless to say, the Warriors didn’t make too many friends outside of the Bay Area with this move.
