Warrior Wonder: Cousins bounces back in win over Hornets

New, comments

“Boogie” dropped 24 points and 11 rebounds in another inspirational game on his comeback tour

DeMarcus Cousins marks the return of the Warriors Big Men

DeMarcus Cousins has had a predictably inconsistent return from his difficult Achilles’ injury rehab that cost him a year of basketball. A man that big, battling against fellow behemoths or chasing gnat-like guards on the perimeter, needs time to get his conditioning and feel for the game back.

After a tough loss against Houston, Cousins was forthright in his frustrations.

But that’s the beauty of his position with the world champion Golden State Warriors. The Dubs took a flyer on the big fella’s redemption arc with an eye on the postseason, not so much late February. Cousins has plenty of time to round into shape and he took a major step forward last night in Charlotte in the Warriors’ 121-110 victory over the Hornets.

Each night that Cousins battles to regain his Olympian form, Dub Nation gets a front row seat into the story arc of a man snatching his legacy back from the brink of destruction. I’m nominating “Boogie” as the Warrior Wonder for his stellar bounce back game last night, what do y’all think?
