I was blown away by DeMarcus Cousins going to Golden State, and for a one year deal at $5,300,000 which seems remarkably cheap. After calming down, a few things have come to mind or been brought up by the media.

He's coming off of a torn Achilles tendon. That is a bad injury. He won't be back until January at the earliest and maybe not until February. It's also possible the Warriors will hold him back longer since it's not as if they need him ASAP. Boogie claimed he got no offers, not even from the Pelicans which promptly signed Julius Randle to a two year deal for $18,000,000. It's only speculation, but it could be that the Achilles is worse than has been publicly acknowledged and that the lack of interest in Cousins was because he's reluctant to let anyone look under the hood.

Keep in mind too that he by all rights should have been the #1 pick in the 2010 draft, even ahead of John Wall, and fell to #5 because he has a rap, somewhat deserved and somewhat not, for being a real problem. It never descended to JR Rider in Minnesota or Portland Jail Blazers levels, but there were problems in Sacramento and that team never won a thing with him. This will haunt me when he's a 20-10 guy in the playoffs, but my take is the Cousins to Golden State signing won't have nearly the impact people are projecting and, in some cases, fearing.

I agree with you to a point but Sacramento is and has been a dumpster fire forever, when he got to New Orleans he was a model player and never caused any problems. He'll be fine at Golden State. They won't really need him until the playoffs, he'll be fine physically by them hopefully..
ALSO, the big part is this is a one year deal, he's going to be playing to prove to everyone he'd deserving of a big deal so he'll be hungry..

Lakers with James, McGee, Rondo, Stephonson will battle Houston and Boston for #2 team next year.

#2 team next year? No way...they have nobody that can shoot other than Lebron. It's not just that they don't have good shooters, they literally have the 2 worst shooting point guards now in the league on their team, Ball and Rondo.  I mean, Brandon Ingram can score but other than Lebron that's about it. Shit, Stephenson was out of the league a few years back, he's not going to add anything other than maybe some comedy on the court..
Kuzma is a young stud plus I would start Caldwell-Pope over Ball.Plus Nick Wright could cream himself everytime Lebron scored 50 even tho they lose.
You would start Caldwell-Pope but that doesn't mean the Fakers will.
I'm think LeBron might acrually murder one of Ball, rondo or Stephenson by mid-season. They seriously might not make the playoffs next season even with LeBron.

Warriors don't need Cousins to win another championship but he'll make it easier. He doesn't have to average 25 and 13 like he did last year ...maybe 10 and 7. Warriors won with Andrew Bogut, Mo Speights, Zaza Pachulia, David West and JaVale McGee at center. Heck most of the time Draymond Green was playing center at 6-7.

Yeah, one things for sure, Daddy Ball better not start running his trap next season, Lebron won't put up with that shit..

With the people they are surrounding him with, on paper this looks like it has disaster written all over it. Obviously nobody will know for sure until they actually get out on the court 

Magic Johnson was a great player, but as an executive I'm starting to have very little faith in his decisions.

Except for the fact that LeBron gave them the OK to sign the 3 players.

Even LeBron isn't going to come in and in the first 24 hours start laying down the law but at mid season with the team 20-21 and old man Ball saying that his snot nosed bastard kid is a star and needs some " help" the shite will fly.
Rondo will be hurt, his shooting % will be the lowest in league history, Stephenson will be benched, suspended or cut and Earvin will wish he had died of AIDS.
