Kerr sounded just as intrigued about Cousins for different reasons. While the Warriors’ young reserves have questions about their long-term potential after losing veteran reserves in JaVale McGee, David West and Nick Young, Cousins has questions both about his recovery and if he can adapt to the Warriors’ fast pace. Still, Kerr envisioned showing “a lot of interesting stuff we can do with DeMarcus,” including featuring him as a post player, screen setter, jump shooter and facilitator. “DeMarcus gives us a dynamic we haven’t really had, a really dominant big man,” Kerr said. “I think our players will take a lot of joy out of helping DeMarcus come back from the injury and helping him rebound and get his career back on track and in turn lean on him to help us win again. I think it’s going to be a really good scene for our season.”

The day — which began with James visiting students at his I Promise School in Akron — couldn’t have been any better for him. “To come here tonight and go out and hear the fans’ reception — 11 years playing here,” James said. “I just tried to be the best basketball player, the best role model, the best leader I can be both on and off the floor by example for this franchise. They showed their appreciation not only for myself, but for my friends and family at the game tonight. It was a great moment.”
The recognition from fans and the team was a moment he deserved. “I appreciate these fans just as much as they appreciate me. Every single night we stepped out on the floor, they showed their appreciation to not only myself but my teammates for those 11 years, especially those last four years, those championship runs we were making. That was my salute to them for them appreciating what I was able to accomplish with my coaches and teammates.”
