Is It Time For DeMarcus Cousins To Think About Life After Basketball?

DeMarcus Cousins has had a rough time lately with injuries and this off-season is no exception. This time it is a torn ACL and he could miss the whole upcoming season with the Lakers. Cousins recently came back from a torn quad with the Golden State Warriors. You hate to see this happening to a player who is out there giving it his all to help the team. DeMarcus Cousins has to seriously look at maybe hanging his sneakers up after this latest injury.
When injuries start to mount up there comes a time where you must say to yourself is it worth it anymore. Fighting back from injury after injury is tough and many times it also weakens other parts of your body as well. Training has to become an all-out desire or you will never get back to where you wanna be. The question I have is will DeMarcus have the desire to make it back or will he decide to hang it up.
My personal opinion is DeMarcus Cousins will give it one more try, if another injury pops up he will call it a career. I think that is the right decision for Cousins at this point in his career.

Is Draymond Green Worth 100 Million Dollars?

Many people wonder if the Golden State Warriors were going to pay Draymond Green and they did to a tune of a 100 million dollar extension. Draymond Green is the kind of player that you love if he is on your team, but you hate him if you play against him. The real question is he really worth 100 million dollar extension that he got. Let's dig a little deeper into this extension and if the Warriors were smart to do this right now.

The Warriors are a team that needs a guy like Draymond Green and they knew it. Green gives them the tough defensive-minded guy who does not mind doing the dirty work down low. He can also take his man out of the key and to the wing or three-point line. It's tough to find a player that can do those things on a consistent basis. Draymond is also a guy who does not mind telling teammates when they are not doing their job. Case in point when he got into it with superstar Kevin Durant.

Draymond Green's stats really do not jump out at you, but he is a consistent player you can count on night after night. The only real drawback to Green is something he loses his cool and will get technical fouls. This can be an issue when the playoffs roll around. You need him on the floor and his technical fouls have been an issue in the past.

Overall I think the extension was warranted and a good move by the Warriors. The things Draymond to the team is invaluable. Finding a guy like him in free agency just doesn't happen these days.

Can Lebron And A.D. Bring Back Showtime To Lakers?

Last season much was expected of the Los Angeles Lakers with Lebron James leading them. For a while, it looked like they were going to be a playoff team, but injuries took a toll on the Lakers. Fast forward into the offseason the Lakers have added a lot of pieces to the equation. Rajon Rondo came back and Boogie Cousins was also added to the mix with a lot of role players.
Maybe the biggest addition was adding Anthony Davis in a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans. Davis is a top player in the league and should help out James immensely. The only real drawback I see to Davis is he has been prone to injury. He has missed a number of games in his career, but besides that, he is a top-notch player in this league. Will this new addition bring back Showtime? Let's take a closer look.
I like the roster and we should see glimpses of showtime, but I have one fear and that is the injury bug. Many of these players have logged a good number of minutes during their careers and that could be a problem. If they can stay healthy this should be a very competitive team to watch, but if the injury bug hits this team will struggle to be a playoff team.

Kevin Durant A Go For Game 5 No Real Shock!

Kevin Durant has been out of action for a month, but he is a go for Game 5 in Toronto. Did anyone really think he would not show up sometime in the series? Durant is a player that can make a huge difference when healthy. The real question is what can Durant give the Warriors at this point down 3-1.

Many people think he won't make much of a difference, but I'm not of that thinking at all. I think Kevin Durant will play alot better then people think. Is he enough to make a difference tonight? I say yes as the Warriors need one more scorer and we all know Durant can fill it up.

Playing in Toronto is perfect for Durant as he loves being the villain and hearing the boos. All that does is fuel his desire. Toss in Drake and this has to be a much-watched game tonight. No matter what happens the ratings should be sky high for Durant's return.

Kyrie Irving And Big Brother King James Back Together Again?

Rumors are always a fun past time and one of the hottest right now is Kyrie Irving considering joining the Lakers and teaming up with Lebron James again. Can Kyrie really be considering this after the first breakup with James? Yes, it's possible from what I hear from various sources. Would this work a second time around? Let's take a look at what this could look like in Los Angeles.

Over time people get to look at things differently and I think both Irving and James do that now. James knows if he wants to win in Los Angeles he needs some help. Irving has realized he cannot carry a team by himself and is better as a sidekick. Both James and Irving have probably learned they are better as a team than apart.

If the Lakers want to win then they need to try and sign Kyrie Irving. When paired with James they make a lethal duo. Right now the Lakers are in flux and need talent and Irving fits the bill. If Irving and James can co-exist they may be able to bring back some of that old magic that dethroned the Warriors just a few years ago.



Kyrie Irving One Of A Kind Guy

  Kyrie Irving is one guy I cannot really figure out. He is very talented, but it seems he always has issues. When he was paired with Lebron...
