DeMarcus Cousins needs to stay in New Orleans. Here’s why…

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

DeMarcus Cousins received a call from both the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans after becoming a free agent last night.

According to Marc Spears of ESPN, he is expected to have a meeting with both teams.

I don’t like this one bit. Not only as a New Orleans Pelicans fan, but I don’t like the idea of DeMarcus Cousins and LeBron James playing together.

Here are my other reasons as to why Boogie needs to stay in New Orleans:

The Boogie and the Brow, Fire and Ice

When Cousins and Anthony Davis were jelling on the floor together, it was special. In a league that has become guard dominate, Cousins and Davis made it work.

Davis has been very vocal about wanting Cousins back. Don’t leave him, Boogie.

Cousins and the Ball Family Together Sounds Like a Terrible Idea 

Cousins and Lonzo and Lavar Ball together in Los Angeles sounds like a terrible idea. I don’t think you need any more explanation as to why.

Beignets 

Los Angeles does not have beignets or Cafe du Monde. Easiest reason to stay in New Orleans in my opinion.

All the Kentucky players on the Pelicans

If DeMarcus Cousins leaves, that leaves only four former Cats on the Pelicans roster. The possibility of having all former Kentucky players on the floor for New Orleans would be ruined. Don’t leave Davis, Rajon Rondo, DeAndre Liggins, Darius Miller and maybe Derek Willis, Boogie!

Mardi Gras

Boogie was rehabbing this year during Mardi Gras, but he seemed to really enjoy it last year. Pretty sure LA doesn’t have parades, beads or floats. Also, I heard traffic in LA is terrible.

Cousins respects Alvin Gentry

One of the problems Cousins was rumored to have in Sacramento was issues with the coaches and front office. It has been said that Cousins likes and respects Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry. Can you imagine Boogie and Luke Walton working together? Me neither.

The food 

How can you leave gumbo, jambalaya, po’ boys, étouffée for kale and green drinks?

Please don’t go to Los Angeles, Boogie. The Pelicans need you.

      Don’t try to say that’s a typo

      Yes, considering the ‘a’ and the ‘o’ are on opposite sides of the keyboard…

      She did the same thing, TWICE, in an earlier article. Doesn’t anyone remember that? It was only like a month ago. She’s either not very bright, or trolling us all.

    “I don’t like the idea of DeMarcus Cousins and LeBron James playing together.” couldn’t expand on that thought at all? also can’t spell one of the largest cities in america? this feels like a grade school essay that had a minimum length requirement

      Thank you, sir!!! The ONLY writer not on a complete elementary school level of writing is Aaron Torres.

    Well, we definitely know Cousins isn’t going to Las Angeles. ¯\_(?)_/¯

      Lindsey maybe you should put in a recommendation to hire gobble as a writer, If you go back and read some of his posts I’m sure his brilliance will become evident.

      Thanks for the recommendation 4everukblue. I completely agree… I’ll be awaiting my invitation for an interview.

    New Orleans is the only place boogie hasn’t been a focus of negative PR. LeBrons teammates have been notoriously unhappy. There are two good reasons to stay ok New Orleans. Also, the west coast wasn’t a big fan of cousins antics.

    The pelicans will use AD as the guy to plan around and not DC. They both essentially play the same position. I think he should stay for one more season in Nola and then start looking around or he could go to the Wizards.

    The food alone would keep me in new orleans.

    Boogie would put LaVar in his place and that would be worth seeing.
