Standing in front of his Golden State Warriors teammates after a film session during training camp, Draymond Green unexpectedly spoke up on behalf of DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins. Green told the reigning two-time NBA champions that Cousins needed their daily support as he continues to recover physically and mentally from a torn Achilles tendon. He added that they should be prepared for when the four-time NBA All-Star has his bad days before reaching his great days in a Warriors uniform. The Warriors center, who was in the room, was touched by Green’s words. “It felt amazing,” Cousins told The Undefeated. “I never had a teammate speak up for me in any matter or actually try to understand my situation in any moment. Shows he cares. Shows his leadership qualities are through the roof.”
While the two are meshing, the two also acknowledge they are both still strong-minded men who don’t and won’t always agree on everything. “Hell, no. We fight every day,” Cousins said with a laugh. Said Green: “I’m sure we’ll have battles this year. That’s not going anywhere. We’ll be on the same team. There will be classic battles, there will be times when we disagree. That’s just the nature of the game we play.”
A player who is not currently in the game is typically assessed a one-game suspension for leaving the immediate vicinity of the bench when an altercation ensues in live action. The two stars will not be reprimanded because the league did not deem the activity of Lakers guard Lance Stephenson and Warriors guard Quinn Cook as being an “altercation,” sources said.
