DeMarcus Cousins: “My Quad is 100 Percent Healed”

Former Kentucky center DeMarcus Cousins is about to enter the most important season of his career. After recently signing a one-year deal worth $3.5 million with the Los Angeles Lakers, Cousins is working his way back into shape.

A torn Achilles in Jan. 2018 and a torn quad during last season’s playoff run with the Golden State Warriors have hampered Cousins’ abilities on the court. His market value in free agency this summer was at an all-time low before he ultimately agreed to join Anthony Davis and LeBron James in L.A.

Despite all that, according to Ryan Ward of Clutch Points, Cousins is working his way into the best physical shape of his life.

Cousins appeared in 81 games during his rookie season in 2010-11, but has not played in more than 75 games during a season since then. He’s played in only 78 games over the last two seasons. But if you’ve seen the video making its rounds on the Internet of Cousins speaking with the media, you can see he’s already slimmed down.

Is #SkinnyBoogie going to be a thing now? If it means we get the best version of Cousins that we’ve seen in years, then I am here for it.

    I think Boogie has shown he works hard, so I have faith in his ability to be ready. I am predicting a great season!

    Losing weight like former teammate, Draymond Green, will serve Boogie well…
