  • He just has to change his style of play. With these injuries, his size wont be much of a factor no more. Best thing for him to do is to develop a better mid range jumper and a better 3 point shot and he will be fine. He should only be in the middle when hes on defense. Driving the ball to the basket, with all his injuries hurt him again

  • I feel so much for Boogie...he has been playing so well, and hard and now, he is totally injured and probably can only play in China now. Please get well soon and get a new Personal trainer's very sad man.... SO frigging aweful....

  • I feel so sorry for Boogie, not only did he do a remarkable job, he even cleaned up his attitude on the court. I hope and pray he can come back like no other, and get good money. But his health is more important, and he may not return, but I hope he can. Loose some weight, stretching his muscles and keep that great attitude he has. It's really no fair. Boogie we wish you the best and hope for a come back.

  • It's hard for me to feel sorry for someone who is so egotistically arrogant,rude and petty as Jamarcus, but for some reason I do on this situation. He is just a spoiled kid in a grown man's body, just like the vast majority of professional athletes at the end of the day I suppose

    • It's incredible to me! Cousins didn't pass a movement assessment, because he NEVER had one! These people are asking to get hurt. They know more about injury prevention down at the local Crossfit box than in these billion dollar enterprises with 100 million on the line.

  • This could happen to any player at any time. So, unfortunaely these guys need to look out for their own best interests. That means taking the best deal they can get in terms of $ and not necessarily loyalty to any one team.

  • This will help the Lakers, on the court. Cousins is all NBA at finding a way to lose games, and sabotage his team. The only harm to the lakers, is paying him to rehab. This hurts opponents of the Lakers. Every game is won during a pivotal 2-5 minute stretch, and having him on the court, is a huge advantage to every team except the Lakers.
