DeMarcus Cousins has now breathing rarified air as he is only one of 8 players in NBA history to play in 500 games without even sniffing the postseason. He now joins the likes on NBA legends such as Eddy Curry, Sebastian Telfair and his former teammate, Omri Casspi[1. who now plays on the Golden State Warriors and will most likely win a title this year].
Now, there are plenty of great NBA players who have never won an NBA Title. John Stockton, Karl Malone, Steve Nash, Allen Iverson. The list goes on. You get the point. You don’t need an NBA Title to be considered one of the greats.
But like, you have to at least compete in the playoffs like, one time. Boogie has NEVER been in the playoffs? That’s insane. It’s really getting hard to root for this guy averaging close to 20 points and 20 rebounds while his team loses every game. Plus, now he’s with Anthony Davis. There is no excuse to not be better than the Utah Jazz who are relying on a rookie to lead them in scoring and Joe fucking Ingles.
BUT, if the season were to end today, the New Orleans Pelicans would be the 7th seed. Pop bottles. Pour champagne all over Josh Smith’s empty locker. The problem is, the Golden State Warriors are the 2nd seed which means the Pelicans would get swept before Anthony Davis gets the opportunity to twist his ankle.
Also, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder are currently outside of the playoffs. I can’t imagine that lasts much longer sooo there’s a very good chance that the Pelicans again, don’t make the postseason.
Let’s see how many games DeMarcus Cousins can play without making the playoffs. If he misses this year then he’ll hit 600 games.
Or he’ll get traded to the Washington Wizards at the All-Star break and none of this will matter.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think DeMarcus Cousins will never win a title. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
