Cousins also sounded off on teaming back up with Davis after their stint together with the New Orleans Pelicans.
For the second-straight offseason, Boogie has signed a one-year deal to prove himself after his only season with the Warriors was marred by inconsistent play and yet another injury as he went down in the 11st round and wouldn't return into the NBA Finals.
That's impressive praise from Cousins about the Lakers' group outlook ahead of the upcoming season. The Toronto Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors 4-2 to win the 2019 NBA Finals. I didn't see him coming this route (to the Lakers). Like, 'I got to wait another day, dude?
"I think all of it was a shock to me", Green said on a conference call with reporters Thursday. "Those are two really good friends of mine".
"That's part of the reason why we wanted to become teammates again".Читайте также: Cameron Boyce's Dad Shares Last Photo Taken Before His Death
Time will tell, but for now, it appears the starting lineup for the Lakers isn't set in stone and we won't have a clear-cut answer on it in the immediate future. "That being said, the opportunity presented itself and I chose to make it happen". I think it was between them and going back (to the Toronto Raptors). You never know, it could be two teams in L.A. playing against each other [in the playoffs] which we wouldn't have to travel anywhere. Cousins averaged 25.2 points with career-highs of 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game.
"I think we're a pretty tough big-man duo", Cousins said. "We're both unselfish players".
If James does play point guard, it could allow Davis and Cousins to play on the court at the same time, giving them a chance to replicate the success they had not long ago. Both Green and Kyle Kuzma are likely to be in the starting lineup to begin the regular season.
The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly discussed the possibility of starting LeBron James at the point guard position in the 2019-20 season, but head coach Frank Vogel says there is "no imminent plan" in place right now.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
