Catch up and compete — stop crying about Boogie to the Warriors

Even in the offseason, Golden State continues to dust the league

In case you have been without Wi-Fi over the last 24 hours, you may not be aware that the Golden State Warriors have once again broken the NBA.

That’s right, if you haven’t heard, the Warriors and DeMarcus Cousins have agreed to a one-year, $5.3 million deal, which was first reported by Shams Charania from Yahoo! Sport.

Boogie to the Bay. Five All-Stars, potentially starting, on one freaking team. Yes, the Lakers went from the front page of the news to the classified section. Boogie is a Golden State Warrior.

Here’s my reaction 20 minutes after it was first reported:

I mean, the Minnesota Timberwolves paid more for Anthony Tolliver. Anthony Tolliver!

And once again, everybody and their mama is mad at the Warriors. Don’t blame the back-to-back champs for Cousins falling into their lap. Don’t point your finger angrily at GM and President of Basketball Operations Bob Myers for picking up the phone when Cousins called him.

Don’t blame Draymond Green, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant for welcoming Cousins with open arms. This franchise is about winning and getting better. The point of all of this is to win, right?

Blame the rest of the NBA for not offering Cousins a contract. Sure, he’s coming off of an achilles-tendon injury and may not play until midway through the season, but why wouldn’t you want to stash an All-NBA player like Cousins?

See, what people are failing to realize is that the NBA has always been about empires, The Warriors are this decade’s empire, and the joy they have playing basketball, the humbleness from franchise players like Curry and Durant, a no-nonsense guy like Klay Thompson. Like, who wouldn’t want to sign up and play with unselfish players like that?

The rich get richer. We saw it with Niners and Cowboys of the ‘90’s, the Yankees and Red Sox, heck, even the Astros are loading up after drafting so well.

Who can blame Cousins for wanting to be a champion?

That’s right, Bada Bing Bada Boom! The Warriors have ended the season in early July, and here in the Bay Area, we really don’t give a damn about your crying. Catch up and compete, or the league will continue to get dusted.

Bada Bing Bada Boom.
