New Orleans Pelicans All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins reached out to his 3 million+ followers on social media today for the first time since he ruptured his left achilles tendon.
Cousins, who will miss the remainder of the season as he recovers, has dubbed his comeback "The Resurgence."
Boogie suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of New Orleans' victory over the Houston Rockets last Friday night, and has not publicly addressed the injury about it until today. In short, he says, "This shit sucks!"
"No lie this shit sucks! I’ve never experienced an injury of this magnitude in my life, but with that being said nothing I’ve earned has ever come easy for me either! I’ve only gotten it the hard way and I don’t expect things to change for me now. I’m just built that way and I’ll overcome this as well and continue to prove. I want to thank everyone for all the love, prayers, and positive energy sent my way. You are greatly appreciated! I’m also asking my supporters to join me on this journey back to playing the game I love. See you soon... #TheResurgence"
The Pelicans are still sitting in the sixth seed in the Western Conference with a mark of 27-22, but they will sorely miss their All-Star center. Cousins was having one of his best statistical seasons - averaging 25.2 points per night and career highs in rebounds and assists with 12.9 and 5.4, respectively.
