DeMarcus Cousins is active for Game 1 of the NBA Finals

Game One of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and the Raptors is tonight and DeMarcus Cousins is ACTIVE. Oh yes, after suffering a torn quad in Game Two of the Warriors’ opening round series vs. the Clippers almost seven weeks ago, Boogie has been cleared to return to the court just in time to help Golden State get another ring.

Here’s a crazy stat from ESPN: if Boogie does go, he’ll be the first Kentucky player coached by John Calipari to play in the NBA Finals. He returned to practice this week and according to Steve Kerr, has been pain-free, but how will his body react to being thrown into the fire of the NBA Finals? Draymond Green had a great quote about it yesterday:

You got this, Boogie. Game One tips off at 9 p.m. on ABC.

    Not typically a Draymond fan to put it mildly but I thought his answer about Boogie was really good. Having said that, I am sure Draymond will do something stupid tonight to make me hate him again lol

      Didn’t DeAndre Liggins play in the Finals? I could be wrong, but he played for Cal.

    Liggins may have been on the Cavs roster but don’t remember him getting any minutes. This isn’t really a surprise given how high most of our guys get drafted going to subpar teams. The way the NBA is nowadays it’s tough to build teams strictly through the draft and development. Coaches are given 3yrs tops…just ask AD.
