He's grown bigger than the team.

Idk what that means. Is he a goner? LA perhaps?

Are there folks that still want him on the CEltics??

I'll despise this guy even more when he's a Laker in 2 months
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

If I was New Orleans I wouldn’t be so fast to offer that supermax that only they can offer.

I’d go over what other teams without his rights can, but probably not go too crazy above it.

If he only wants their max, I’d start looking at s&t possibilities.

They can't offer a supermax to Cousins. This is from the Washington Post:

"A player qualifies for the DPE [Designated Player Exception], which can be used to give a player a contract extension or to sign him as a free agent, if he does one of the following:

1. He makes one of the three all-NBA teams or is named either defensive player of the year or most valuable player the previous season.

2. He has made one of the three all-NBA teams or has been named defensive player of the year in two of the prior three seasons or the league’s most valuable player in one of the three prior seasons.

And this crucial stipulation: He has to be on the team that drafted him or has to have been traded on his rookie deal to another team."



Since Cousins wasn't on his rookie deal when he was traded he lost Supermax-eligibility. Also, the Pels can only offer one Superman deal, which they would likely reserve for Davis instead.

Reports about Instagram are in my top five of things that irritate me about sports today. 

My guess is that this is completely meaningless.

This 1000x. If I have to hear one more news story about some NBA player tweeting those side eyes I will lose it

DeMarcus Cousins started following Julius Randle, Isaiah Thomas, and Paul George.

Well, looks like we know where he's heading to this summer, along with Paul George. Now waiting for LeBron James to unfollow the Cavs and start following those guys and his new team as well.

LOL how can the Lakers even afford all that.

They essentially need to sign three max-contracts (Lebron, George, Cousins), re-sign Randle and Thomas with Bird Rights. They'd virtually have to trade everyone else (Kuzma, Ball, Ingram, Deng) to make that work...

Lebron teaming up with Isaiah? Yeah, that ain’t happening.

Would you still want him on the Celtics team?
