The Golden State Warriors stunned the NBA world on Monday by landing four-time All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins, who inked a one-year, $5.3 million deal.
When asked why DeMarcus Cousins is going to Golden State, a source close to him said: “Hes about winning.”

Obviously this move was the ultimate power play to negate any hope the Los Angeles Lakers have of potentially making a push to dethrone the champs.
Twitter had some pretty varied reactions to this shocking development. Here are the best ones we found.

The Warriors entire starting lineup made the All-Star team last season: Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, DeMarcus Cousins.

DeMarcus Cousins said "enough losing" I'll take the biggest paycut of a guy of my talent level and just get me a ring.
I. CANNOT. STOP. LAUGHING.
The NBA off-season gives me life.

Boogie to the Warriors? Better than all the Lakers geezer moves. Draymond and this guy will be fun to watch. If any team can get this guy to his best potential it’s these Warriors.
