    Durant would bolt to Houston faster than... Bolt (Usain that is).

    no he absolutely hates Houston and has hated them for years on end...he hates Morey, he hates James Harden...he just hates how Houston is able to get away with so much crap over the years.

    The New Orleans Pelicans players were encouraging Demarcus Cousins to join them on the bench for Game 1 of the playoffs.

    Cousins declined stating he is still unable to fly due to his Achilles. However, his manager shows a picture of him on a flight to Coachella.

    Cousins has been rehabbing in Los Angeles the entire time.

    His Pelican teammates were hoping he would join them on the bench during the playoffs as a form of free agency recruitment, where they can say “look what we can do together if you re-sign with us. If we are here and your injured, think of what we can do when you come back”.

    .... Boogie instead gives a bogus “I can’t fly” excuse and opts to chill in LA instead.


    Boogie to LA has been confirmed.

    If he wants to come for a 1-year deal where he basically rehabs as a bench player for really cheap, I'm interested.

    Otherwise I'm not giving him a lot of money after an Achilles injury to a guy who hasn't ever been in great shape or had the best mentality.

    Ugh D-bag move by Cousins confirmed.

    Can’t deny his talent, but ugh. Imagine him doing the same in purple and gold

    Seemingly un-cool of him. Just wondering about the "flight to Coachella" part. From where ... L.A.? 1/2 hour vs what ..... 2 hours to Portland. Still weird. Doesn't compute.

    i think NO has to be thinking S&T (and maybe only that) with cousins this summer. they're as good or better without him, and their payroll isn't small. add his injury and general d******ery, and you've got to move him. who takes him? if the lakers strike out (looking super likely today), do they take a S&T with a team option on year 3? i'd probably decline if i were running the team, but there might be some others out there who would buy at that kind of price.

    in any case, NO shouldn't bring him back.

    The best line when Patrick is talking about Vince, "I don't know, I just get a bad feeling about him" :giggle::D:clap:

    Also, the stuff in the credits.

    I'm having a hard time finding it but it was either this year or last year when he said something flattering about our future.

    He also recently said in his new Podcast he started a few weeks ago (which is great by the way) that he thinks LBJ is going to PHI if he leaves CLE.
