Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins were once two of the most dominant big men in the game, but the latter was unfortunate to have suffered a slew of injuries, and has looked like a shell of his former self since that time.
The Achilles injury, in particular, appeared to have hampered Cousins this season. He just didn’t have the lift, or the explosiveness, that once made him so dominant.
But they’re back playing together again — not on the Pelicans, but on the Lakers — and it will be interesting to see how Cousins looks on the court, given how sluggish he looked in the NBA Finals. For now, he appears excited to play alongside Davis again, which apparently has been in the works for awhile.
We can’t wait to see them playing under the bright lights of Staples Center.
