Yeah, Every writing, everything I give you needed it Pretty pretty.
You just tell me what you history.
I don't like to throw around around the way it is.
What? Yeah, but we back re back.
Sadly, we back for a very, very tough, tough thing to be covering here today if, um, McCall rights.
The right to the point cause I got nothing else.
Really? No, no good this year.
So if you guys did not see, I actually just covered this a little while ago.
Cousins this morning just reported basically a knee injury that it happened in a Las Vegas, you know, training center, working out training, doing what he's got to do during the right things.
You know, mid workout, apparently.
You know, bumped knees that's looking a little bit less than what it was at the moment, but apparently bumps knees with another player on the team.
May possibly reported by woes this morning.
Knee injury for DeMarcus cousins.
I had already dropped the video earlier.
If you guys want to see that initial one on dhe just I was hoping it wasn't major.
They had already said you know, Possibly not.
Major could just be, you know, something mild.
You know, maybe a week or two.
We should be ready to go by season, whatever that is.
And here we are, finding out just two or three hours later, it is officially a tornado C l.
You want to see? I was hoping for just about any type of injury assigned from this because, I mean, this is it now, Um, I mean, I'm not gonna be somebody that put words in his mouth and a rear, but I mean, when you are going through any type of injury, let alone a major injury such as any type of terror in any type of muscles, let alone the same couple, it's just hard to justify.
You know, again, he absolutely is.
One of the better centers in the league has been for a while.
Do not argue with that. Fantastic.
Especially in Sacramento.
One of those guys that just wants to be out there playing basketball took a lot of pay cuts.
Put Ah, just left a lot of millions of dollars on the table for him, too.
Do what he loves and play the sport that he loves And just, you know, here we are now again, half in the report and a C L injury by DeMarcus Cousins, most likely out for a not even most likely, I mean, he's out for an extended period of time.
Um, again, I just I meant I'm at a loss of words in a loss of feelings after this again.
If you guys saw earlier I was already just a little upset, was concerned that maybe this was a major injury.
And here we are now officially getting the news that it's a torn a c e o.
So what's what's what's next for cousins? Want sex for the Lakers for cousins again, man, If if I'm him, I by all means.
I'm not the person to tell anybody to retire or wish anybody retirement, especially based on injury.
But if he wants to walk, at least normally wants to walk in the next 10 20 years.
I mean, he's got to consider, you know, he's a big dude.
I mean, it's it's hard to be 6 11 7 foot and you know not put strain on your knees and on your legs and clearly that got toe? Um, he obviously is now in a major injury history here.
I mean, not good.
I mean, again, we know the left Achilles tear with the pelicans.
And after doing that, he turned down $40,000,000 $40,000,000.
Turned that money down to see what he had and where else he could go.
Not really looked at as a big signing.
Um, you know, again after, after any big man tears and Achilles or any type of injury like that, it's hard to look at him and be like, Well, he's gonna be the same.
He's gonna be fine, puts a risk himself.
Turns down two years, about $40,000,000.
I mean, again, he goes to the Warriors.
We all know, thinks he's going to win a championship.
Bets on himself.
Only takes a $5,000,000.
You know, your salary.
Basically, we all know what happened.
Thorne Quad again.
It just It's a sad moment.
Thought maybe he was the kind of guy to come back from it, you know, have a great season here.
He is now getting signed with Lakers again.
Championship contender gets to be with his buddy Anthony Davis gets to be with LeBron.
You know, again just the opportunity to win a championship, and I have a good season and tears that a c l in practice again, doing what he's supposed to be doing, though, you know he's at practice, he's working out.
He's trying to get better, trying to put up shots, kind of just do all the right things.
And he tears a CEO.
Don't expect to be seeing him anytime soon.
Just a sad moment, not only for him, but, you know, for the sport of basketball.
I know a lot of people are kind of iffy if they're DaMarcus cousins fans, if they don't like him, how they feel about him.
But you don't ever want to see somebody go down with injury, especially with the potential like cousins.
And just the potential putting Anthony Davis a cousin's back together again was just as exciting for me.
But not justice.
Deciding just the tear low as exciting as LeBron Anthony Davis being together.
And it's it's not gonna be a thing now.
So salmon for him again.
I don't wish retirement on him, but you got it for your own health and safety.
You kind of have to do something, you know.
I mean, it's it's hard at this point, but he turned down the money multiple times to help himself out.
Try and get himself in a championship winning team, and it just hasn't been working out for him as he takes those risks.
Now, here he is, making less than $10,000,000 last two years when he could have made, you know, big, big money.
So it is what it is for the Lakers, obviously, for the Lakers, they have some things they have to decide.
Cousins was gonna be a main point of this offense.
I definitely saw him, if not starting for sure, coming off the bench and plains of good minutes, probably letting him kind of get it back under his feet and then playing.
But for the Lakers, I can see them going out trying to find just another another big man.
Maybe somebody that can rebound.
Kenneth Faried is still out there.
Definitely an option.
Noah is still out there.
I know both those names are necessarily, you know, big star caliber esque names, but I mean joking.
No one knows this fort used to be one of the best defenders in the game of basketball.
Defensive player of the year type, and he's just got the energy.
I feel like maybe he's somebody they go after again.
Fareed is just a big rebounder.
Plays hard, does what he has to do.
Um, center nay nays out there.
Or some names I'm seeing here.
Justin Anderson is another guy out there.
So maybe look for the Lakers to try and make a couple moves, do something like that going get somebody just to help out again.
Because this is this is a pretty pretty hefty injury for them.
Um, so, sadly, again, I don't have a whole lot to cover on it.
It's just as a as visibly as upset as I was this morning covering this exact news.
It is just so hard to come back on here in front of you guys and tell you how much more of a catastrophic injury this is.
Uh, it is what it is.
Um, so javale McGee is going to be the guy playing big man. We know.
That's good again.
Another guy like I really like his heart.
His passion, You know, he plays hard entire time.
Every minute he's on the floor.
He's gonna continue to do that.
But now, looking for a backup big man, most likely again, I said, You know what? Joking? No Anderson Kenneth Faried If they're just looking for Rebound something like that.
But look for the front office of the Lakers to probably make some moves here in the next couple of days.
Or at least tried to be bringing some guys in to make some moves.
Because not only was cousins a great offensive and a good ball mover, good three point shooter, the dude was a rebounder.
Primarily, like that is what you want out of the market, because that's what you were getting, and it's it's just sad.
So not to say he retires.
But, you know, if he does in his nine seasons, you know, going up the stats for you guys.
Cousins. Everything. 21 points again.
Almost 11 rebounds, almost two blocks shooting over 45%.
It's 75% almost from the line.
I mean, that's that's fantastic, you know, that's that's exactly what you're looking for out of a big man.
2010 guy throws in a block or two in their chutes. Almost 50%.
And his thesis from the line.
It just sand moment.
Sad moment for cousins.
Tough break for the Lakers.
And I wish cousins all the best in whatever he decides to do with the rest his career.
You've got to think that there's no way team is gonna make the take the risk I'm going to get him.
I mean, already teams were debating taking the risk.
One year, $5,000,000.
1 year, three point $5,000,000.
I mean, at this point, like who knows what causes gonna d'oh Um, but again, all the best to him And, you know, his family, friends, everyone there that you know are taking a blow from, and hopefully the Lakers can bounce back.
So it is what it is.
Um, great career overall, Honestly, that, too.
I hope he doesn't want to go out there and, you know, tryin just put games together and have bad games because he is holding on to a 2010 career which a lot of people aren't able to do.
So it is what it is, um, again, sadly, just wanted to report to you guys officially.
After saying what I did this morning, that Cousins is now officially out with an A C L injury.
Not for sure on the timetable on when he's gonna be returning, but hopefully it is soon.
Hopefully, still got something left in the tank because I love watching me some boogie.
So cheers to be cheers to you all the wrong boys and girls wouldn't do it is what it is gonna be trying to drop some other content for you guys here in the next couple of minutes as well.
