DeMarcus Cousins’ Best Destination

This season has been rather interesting for the Brooklyn Nets. Although we all are ready for Kevin Durant to heal from his ruptured Achilles injury, we wanted to examine Kyrie Irving’s leadership skills. We want to decipher if the Boston Celtic’s last season failure was due to head coach Brad Stevens’ college style coaching or is Irving just inept to lead. Well, Irving is out for the season due to shoulder injury after only playing 20 games. It’s irrefutable that the leader of the Brooklyn Nets has definitely been Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie is averaging 20.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6.7 assists.

This season the Nets aren’t a threat to anyone. The Eastern Conference Finals will be the Milwaukee Bucks versus the Boston Celtics or the Toronto Raptors. However, there is one variable that will allow the Brooklyn Nets to reign in the East: Kevin Durant. Once Irving and Durant are back next season everything changes. However, a big man who can guard a Kawhi Leonard or LeBron James can ensure a championship title.  

DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins was just recently waived by the Los Angeles Lakers. Both sides have said that Cousins will likely remain with the team as soon as he is able to play again. Bougie was released after Markieff Morris’ contract buyout from the Detroit Pistons. Then Morris was signed to Cousins’ place. Cousins hasn’t played all season due to left knee torn ACL. Next season, Boogie can ensure rim protection and defense while Durant and Irving handle the offense.  Cousins’ career stats are 21.2 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game.

Center Deandre Jordan has a higher field goal percentage than Cousins. However, Boogie is more impressive in the paint. Jordan is still a much better perimeter shooter than Cousins. Utilizing both players (especially in the playoffs) can make certain Durant can score all the 3 pointers he desires. 

Next Season, the Brooklyn Nets have the potential to be number one in the East, but adding Cousins could make them a championship contender.
