B/R: In the Western Conference, you’ll have to go through Golden State. What did you think of DeMarcus Cousins signing with the Warriors? Michael Beasley: I think it was f–king bulls–t! [Laughs.] No, I’m just playing. I was surprised, but for DeMarcus, it was the best move. Coming off an injury, the market not being what he thought it’d be, him going there gives him a good chance to reevaluate what a winning culture is, to better himself on and off the court. But I’m like everybody else, too. God damn, you got DeMarcus Cousins? You got two championships with JaVale, he leaves, and you replace him with DeMarcus? C’mon, man. But at the end of the day, we’re all men, and we play basketball the same way. I don’t think they’re unbeatable; we just gotta go back to the drawing board.
“For us, we understand that we have a tight window to build a certain type of culture that will attract athletes like DeMarcus Cousins. To where he will say [that joining the Warriors] is his ‘perfect chess move.’” So, have the back-to-back champions ruined basketball by adding a fifth All-Star to their starting lineup? “What we’re doing is playing basketball the right way,” said Golden State’s do-everything Sixth Man. “We’re attracting a lot of people because they like the way we do things organically. We respect the game.”
