In the wake of Warriors president of basketball ops/GM Bob Myers telling 95.7 The Game that DeMarcus Cousins has exceeded all expectations to this point, Draymond Green, one of the team’s shrewdest evaluators of talent shared his thoughts on Boogie.

In an appearance with team voice Tim Roye on “Beyond the Arc,” Draymond explained that there is much, much more to come.

“He’s just added a completely different dimension to our team that we haven’t had,” Green said.

“And, I mean, the interesting part about it is, it’s going well — exciting, I should say, part about it — is it’s going well,” Green continued.  “And he’s probably — and when I say this I mean it in a basketball perspective, not health perspective — he’s probably at 40 percent, maybe.

(Laughs)

“When you’re talking 30, 40 percent basketball wise. And, so, when you look at that, you know that he’s going to continue to get better, which will, in turn, help us continue to get better.”

“It’s a scary thought.”
