A torn Achilles' will reportedly keep him sidelined until at least December or January, possibly February, but when Cousins is healthy he will give the Warriors a plethora of all-star and all-NBA talent that had National Basketball Association players bemoaning their potency.

Late Monday, the defending National Basketball Association champions boosted their odds of winning it all once again by adding talented free-agent center DeMarcus Cousins on a one-year, $5.3 million deal. One can understand why a player who averaged 25 points, 13 rebounds, and five assists last season would want something more than a meeting on the books in a few days, particularly in a market moving as fast as this.

Cousins is one of the best frontcourt players in the league, and he's going to be only the 7th highest paid player on the Warriors next season.

"It's not B.S. It wasn't a comment just to sound good in free agency", Cousins said.

Here's what fans are saying about Cousins joining the already stacked Warriors. James decided it was time to go West as he chose the Lakers as his next team. Even if Cousins takes until, say, late February to recover from the torn Achilles tendon he suffered in January, he should be back to his forceful self by the playoffs, giving Golden State's starting lineup a quintet of all-stars with which to pursue its third straight championship.

Sweden and Germany both had three points, and South Korea had zero. "We are happy and thinking about what comes next", he said. They also controlled possession, holding the ball 70% of the time.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Warriors would be the first team since Boston in 1975-76 to play five All-Stars from the previous season at the same time.

Yet how much Cousins helps will depend on how well he adapts his game to fit in with the Warriors offense. Pachulia and Bell, however, used 17 and 14 percent of possessions for Golden State, respectively, last season. One of the best players in the league.

Several members of the Warriors had smiles on their faces during and after a 79-68 win over the Miami Heat on Monday night in the House that Cousins Built.

The Houston Rockets would hope the duo of Chris Paul and James Harden can continue to shine in the second year together and a similar scenario will likely take place with the Oklahoma City Thunder with Paul George, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony.
