The Golden State Warriors have fallen just short of a third straight championship as they were defeated by the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals. The franchise looked almost invincible at the beginning season when they brought in DeMarcus Cousins who took a pay cut to be apart of this Warriors super team.
It did backfire slightly with Cousins failing to win his first championship, the Warriors big man now appears to be done in Golden State after an Instagram post on Saturday virtually confirming it.
Cousins posted on his Instagram story, thanking the Warriors and their fans for a memorable season and ended it by saying “I’m at ya necks next season.”
. @KDTrey5 and @KlayThompson get healthy killas true definition of warriors! #dubnation thank you for all the support this season. You guys are amazing fans. Look forward to getting 100% healthy this summer. I’m at ya necks next season! 😤 🦍

The main reason for DeMarcus Cousins joining the Warriors was to win a championship and now that window may be closed at the Bay with Durant and Thompson possibly leaving too in the offseason. It does sound like Cousins sees himself elsewhere next season, the Warriors can only pay him around $6.3 million next season, he should be able to get a lot more than that on the open market.
This season, Cousins managed just 30 regular season matches for the Warriors as his injury kept him away from the game for a long period of time.
