The Golden State Warriors are on a mission to achieve the ultimate three-peat of championships this season and with the inclusion of DeMarcus Cousins, the team will be hard to beat.
Cousins sat down with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols this week before his debut game for the Warriors against the Clippers this Friday. The big man is excited for how far the team may go this season but is also aware of how supporters of the game view this side. According to Boogie, the Warriors are the most hated team in not only the NBA but in sports in general.
"I don't really pay attention to storylines," Cousins told ESPN. "I mean, they're gonna say what they have to say. They're gonna add their opinions. We're the most hated team in sports."
It’s an interesting call and although they probably are the most hated team in the NBA, there may be others like the New York Yankees or the New England Patriots that are more hated in the world.
The hatred for the Warriors have certainly grown ever since Kevin Durant joined the side making them almost invincible. Many people who are invested with basketball found that both Durant and Cousins joining this team have damaged their legacy.
There may be a big shake-up within the side next season if KD decides to move on from the Warriors and find a new home.
