Following his torn Achilles suffered on January 27, 2018, Cousins suited up for his new Golden State Warriors team for the very first time, finishing with 14 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in just 15 minutes. Boogie got things started with an emphatic slam down the middle of the lane, followed by a few inside baskets and a three-of-four shooting performance from three. Here are the highlights: https://youtu.be/6rfLNunnzqw After the game, Golden State superstars Steph Curry and Klay Thompson interrupted Cousins' on-floor postgame interview with ESPN by drenching the former Wildcat with water: https://twitter.com/gswchris/status/1086506452850597888?s=21 During his postgame press conference, Cousins said he "felt like a kid on Christmas" in his season debut. In all honesty, he was just happy he could dunk again: https://youtu.be/RFa5R_EIGo4 Before the game, Cousins released another part of his Showtime series (NSFW), documenting his return to the floor and how difficult the journey was to get there: https://twitter.com/defpenhoops/status/1086323530877362176?s=21 Welcome back, Boogie!
