See what Twitter had to say following the Boogie Cousins' signing to the Warriors.
DeMarcus Cousins sent shockwaves throughout the NBA Monday night when it was revealed that he would be taking his all-star talents to the Bay Area and joining the already stacked Golden State Warriors. ESPN reports that Boogie agreed to sign a 1-year deal worth $5.3 million dollars.
Although he’s recovering from an achilles injury that could set him back until December or January, Boogie will eventually be joining a starting lineup that will include Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, & Draymond Green, 5 legit all-stars. And if that’s not enough, they also have a Finals MVP with Andre Iguadala waiting to come off the bench as well.
Once the news broke of Cousins’ signing, Steph Curry welcomed him with a humbling tweet, saying “The 3rd splash Brother 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂. Let’s go @boogiecousins.”
However, the rest of the country outside the Bay Area was pretty damn upset with the NBA & Warriors right now for “ruining” next season already. Twitter erupted with people going off at Adam Silver and the NBA for allowing such a lopsided team to be assembled. Most people believe its making the league worse & straight up unfair overall.
With that said, we went ahead and rounded up some of the best reactions on NBA Twitter following the news, most of which is pure savagery and hilarious gifs & memes of the NBA being a joke now. Check them out (below).
