Unpack the locker room side of it for me. I mean a coup…

Unpack the locker room side of it for me. I mean a couple months ago, he was trying to storm into your locker room and now he’s part of it (After a Dec. 4 game in New Orleans in which Durant and Cousins were both ejected, Cousins had to be held back by security after attempting to enter the Warriors’ locker room). But it sounds like you green-lighted this right away? Stephen Curry: Oh, for sure. We like those challenges. I guess you’d call it ‘The Revival,’ I guess, in the sense that that’s where a guy’s reputation is around the league. But at the end of the day, I’ve played with DeMarcus in Team USA stuff (during their time together competing in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, Cousins jokingly referred to himself as ‘the third Splash Brother’). I’ve played against him. We’ve had run-ins, the teams had run-ins. …But it’s going to be fun.

Cuban offered advice to the next Williamson-caliber player who comes along, especially if it happens before the minimum draft age is lowered to 18. “The next kid in a similar circumstance, go to the G-League, or Europe,” he said. “If you want the international adventure and the exposure to a different type of basketball and different skill sets, go to Europe. If that’s not your thing and you’re not in-tuned to it for whatever reason, and you’ve got a big social media following like Zion Williamson? Go G-League.”
Cuban over the years has expressed concern about the life skills that even some one-and-done players have lacked when coming into the NBA after barely attending college before turning professional. “Got here, didn’t know how to write a check, didn’t know how to sign a lease,” Cuban said Friday. “Just needed somebody basically to hold their hand and it made things difficult for them. It’s hard to focus on your profession when you don’t even know how to focus on the everyday skills that are required for life.”
