Cousins throws down monster dunk minutes into Warriors debut

LOS ANGELES – Today has been all about DeMarcus Cousins. When Cousins signed with the Warriors, some less-than-enthused fans said the Warriors had “ruined the league” by signing Cousins, considering the four All-Stars they already had.

But since Cousins tore his left Achilles back in late January of last year, he’s been recovering from the injury, leaving many wondering what sort of state he would be in when he inevitably returned. Since that return date was announced to be tonight, all the talk surrounding the Warriors has shifted to Cousins and how he’d be incorporated in the lineup.

On the first two possessions of the game, the Warriors tried to force the ball to him twice, to no avail. But a few minutes later, Cousins was back to his usual self, and slammed home a massive dunk.
