Listen: Demarcus Cousins, Golden State Warriors And Marcus Cousins discussed on Fitz and Brooks
"Doc, you're doing it wrong. Let's start with DeMarcus cousins his injuries adman. And what it means for the warriors long term. I think that Kevin Durant discussion we'll do that in the next segment because I believe that's going to take a little bit more time. Here's the latest and not so great at all on DeMarcus cousins, the the worst realize underwent an MRI got a torn left quad muscle. This official statement from the warriors saying that he will be sidelined indefinitely. Began rehabilitation immediately updates on his progress will be provided as appropriate I've torn muscles. He's not come back for plows. It's done and the sadness of it is. In a short amount of time, DeMarcus cousins has become a warrior fan favorites has done all the right things has said all of the right things, and he bet on himself at a big fan of people betting on himself. Now, it was relatively easy bet for DeMarcus cousins, hey, come play for the best team in basketball for less than your true market value for what five million dollars and and change. It was still a big bet on himself nonetheless. And you know, when that injury happened last night, I knew in real time as it happened as soon as we go. That's that's a torn muscle. He's he's done just for my own personal experience with torn and and torn leg muscles. You kind of knew it was coming and just that it was the same leg with his achilles. Tendon you just and every time he went down Barca's cousins this season. Whether it was on his own through contact from player. Whatever I go. Is this the time? Oh is this the time? And it wasn't the time. They went down last night. Like is this the time? Yeah. That's the time. It's thinks because it can you know him, and you've been great in not just, you know, the interview with Marcus cousins last week, which you can find on the Fitz and Brooks page, you can be our dot com. Not just you know that nineteen minutes of DeMarcus cousins, unfiltered, but you just kind of giving us, you know, stories entails from the road or being around the warriors over the course of the season when DeMarcus was playing before he got into the mix. You did a really good job. I think Bob kind of relating stories and humanizing Marcus cousins. Which I think when a long way in people here in the bay area, really and truly not just rooting for DeMarcus cousins because he was a member of the warriors rooting for DeMarcus cousins because I think a lot of people realize like hey that dude that he may have been back in the day. Whether that's real or whether it was a portrayal that he couldn't necessarily control dudes evolving. Didn't mean anything he seemed to be a good, dude? And you hate to see something like that happened last night. But the inevitability of it to me always hung over DeMarcus cousins when even when he was healthy before that game last night. So the quad injuries significant obviously, the rehab, and all that you only thing out, you know, I'll see DeMarcus hopefully, he's going to travel with the team. I don't know physically if you'll be able to right away. But dude run it back. Yeah. Oh, come on back, but running back, you know that under self again, stay with the dubs run it back baby. And and I wanted to put him, and you know, what Damian's coming back from his pictorial the to you, man. Cut run. It back any of the centres say this. I would think and I would hope that DeMarcus cousins realizes he has a home here in the bay area. Yeah. Mean, it's it's he's with a coach he respects. He's a fan base. He likes his teammates that really rallied around him. You see the passing us the skills the humor and the fund that the guy has fits there was nothing forced about DeMarcus cousins being over of the Golden State Warriors. And this is I think Jesse Sapporo broke his leg multiple times. And then finally got right and did all that winning with the forty Niners. There's nothing worse for a guy than to significant injuries. But he's with guys with bogut, and Sean that went through catastrophic injuries and came out the other side. And he can do it. And I'd love it for him to do it here. Shut out to DeMarcus cousins, get well-meant hate to see that happen to you. But don't let it get you down. Yeah. You got me on the Bayer hanging there. Big man runningback, we stay here. Get into what the absence of DeMarcus cousins means for the warriors on the courts, and we'll get into Kevin Durant."
