    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.

    I want to listen to Nick, but I'm so distracted by his hair... with that suit he looks likes a salesman.

    He didn't take undervalued deals. This was his value after the injuries. Smh.

    Boogie was playing so hard that he forgot to rehab his body like the greats do ... Kobe Lebron Shaq etc he’s another T Mac

    This is so sad. Reminds me of Yao Mong and Alonzo Mourning. He is still in his prime yet it's probably going to be all over now.

  • Jason Allen
    Jason Allen 27 days ago

    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

    Wat I dont understand is that y do people stretch before practice or a game it makes ur muscles even more likely to tear somthing go for a walk get ur muscles warmed up then stretch.🤦‍♂️

      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.

  • Brent Conley
    Brent Conley 28 days ago

    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.

    RAIDER GAINZ 28 days ago

    Boogie needs to get on the horn with david goggins. And Nick should be ashamed of himself saying his career is over. YOU DON'T KNOW THAT NICK!

    Lakers going to win the championship this year with or without DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins will be back during the playoffs. And i guarantee you there’s no one that can guard him or stop him from dominating the paint😎👍

    First time I've agreed with anything said by Wright - I feel horrible for DMC. He worked his tail off to try to set his career right, and just got hit by setback after setback. Seriously heartbreaking for this man.

    You do naturally feel bad for Boogie. At every point and time he’s gotten hurt since the Achilles and it’s starting to feel very Kobe Bryant like after he tore his achilless
