Former Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins heaped praises of his current franchise Los Angeles Lakers.
Talking in All the Smoke podcast, Cousins said: “I’ve never been a part of a team like this. Just the vibe of the team is like if we move it’s 1 through 15. One dude going to the movies we all going to the movies.”
Cousins, 29, signed with the Lakers in the summer of 2019. However, he suffered a major injury in the preseason delaying his Lakers debut. Although he is yet to play for the Lakers, Cousins said that the love he has been getting from the fans all over the world was amazing.
“I’m just a guy in the suit & I’m getting love like- bro its crazy bro. It’s America’s Team. I’m getting love from everywhere. People from all over the world, just everywhere, from places I ain’t ever even been. It’s nothing like it,” Cousins said.

Demarcus Cousins on track to come back for the NBA playoffs
Yet to play a game for the Lakers, Cousins could be back for the playoffs according to Lakers’ coach Frank Vogel. During his press availability during the All-Star weekend, Vogel said: “He’s on track to get healthy by the playoffs, and we’ll have to see where he’s at with rhythm and conditioning and timing and all that stuff. But there’s a possibility he returns this season, yes.”
His return would certainly add to the depth of the Lakers side- something which they will need going deep into the season.
