On paper, it’s a joke. The reigning 2x champs just turned their full house lineup into a royal flush. On paper, at least. That’s 5 All-Stars from LAST YEAR alone, who will (assuming Boogie’s achilles injury incurs no setbacks) comprise the Warriors starting lineup when it matters: next spring. The patent un-fairness of it seems to be the over-arching reaction of fans right now, but let’s focus for a minute on just WHY Cousins had to take a one-year show-me deal for the mid-level exception: he’s a mental patient. A supremely talented one, no doubt. But he’s a walking, talking, fight-starting, locker-room-chemistry-ruining type of player. It’s why NOBODY wanted to offer him a contract of any significance right now. That’s the real story. Is he worth the headache? We’re about to find out.
