Are you tired of hearing about the DeMarcus Cousins trade to the Pelicans yet? Me too! With that said, I’m recommending two 11-minute videos from my favorite basketball channel on YouTube: Mike Korzemba.
The first video is called: Why The DeMarcus Cousins Trade SCARES The Warriors! Korzemba breaks down the trade, the player’s stats and talks about how exciting a potential 1st round playoff series between the Warriors and Pelicans could be. Who doesn’t want to see Draymond and DeMarcus Cousins go at each other and rack up techs for 4+ games? And who doesn’t want to watch Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee vs the most talented Twin Towers since David Robinson and Tim Duncan…and yes, I remember Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum…and Dwight Howard.
The second video by Korzemba is called: The REAL Reason The Kings Traded DeMarcus Cousins! The answer is a simple one and evident by almost every single bad decision the front office has made in the past five years. With that said, I’m not as down on the franchise for splitting with Boogie as most people. The way I look at it is if I’m married to a wealthy drop-dead gorgeous woman who makes me hate my life, I’m going to want a divorce. I don’t care how much money she has or how beautiful she is, if she’s making my life a living hell, even if I’m an asshole who deserves it, then a break-up is needed even if it means I have to give up my Tesla and home on the golf course for a Honda Civic and an apartment with thin bedroom walls and noisy neighbors.
If you haven’t had enough of this topic and Korzemba’s voice, then check out his third video about Cousins and the future of the Pelicans titled, “Can DeMarcus Cousins Win The Pelicans a 2018 NBA Ring?” My answer to that question is “HELL NO!” with or without Paul George.
