DeMarcus Cousins suffers torn ACL injury - Nick and Cris react | NBA | FIRST THINGS FIRST
First Things First


  • Will DeMarcus Cousins' injury impact the Lakers' title chances?

    • Still not enough for warriors and Clippers

    • Ask hakeem. He won 1994 ring by himself

    • Boogie is a star🤷🤷

    • Of course, it impacts their title chances. It's Boogie Cousins. Hello?

    • of course

  • 3:33 did she just say switch gears? Molly triggered rn 😬😬😬

  • He's done

  • Gotta have a fall guy.

  • 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....

  • Boogie sucks. He is done. Never will be the same. Next story.

  • His bad behavior caught up with him God gives and takes.

  • Nick, wtf is going on with your hair?

  • Dude is done. He's just going to continue getting injure after this recovery. He can't play hard anymore, stiff movements, etc.

  • After cousin's injury... AD suffers ACL injury will miss entire 2019-2021 nba season.. 😂😂😁😂😂😀 Good bye Self Proclaim King... End of Lakers, trade LeaveBron.. 😂😂😁😂😀

  • He need to take 2 years off get in shape & healthy for one last shot

  • I didn't care when he was with the warriors .. But.... Now as a laker .. I feel bad for him

  • 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.

  • *Yep. . that career is over. . he might as well hang it up*

  • 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.

  • 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

  • damm cousin i dont know if i could survive two acl tears

  • Wait, isn't Nick bald? Or am I going crazy?

    • lmao nick wright's hair that is the comment

  • Lebreon should of stayed in CL

  • 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.

  • he turned down 2yr 40 mil smh.

  • 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.

  • He came back so soon

  • Boogie coulda had one of the biggest contracts in the NBA wish him the best and hope he can work back to that skill

  • "If not for bad luck I would have none" #bars #smh

  • :( dammmmmm

  • Feel bad should took that 2 yr 40m New Orleans offered him

    • @Mike Smith Special Education right

    • No he shouldn't 😒

    • It was his ego and second time turning down big bucks. Hard to feel sorry for him on that front

  • If joel embiid cant stay healthy he won't be the best big in the game either it will be karl anthony towns

  • 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.

  • Cris Carter stop fronting u dont know boogie AT ALL lol

  • lmao nick wright's hair that is the comment

  • why he injured so much suddenly?

  • Cousins still has the best basketball in front of him

  • I feel bad for Boogie but at the same time i am glad that Nick the Rat Wright is sad because this will decrease Lebron's chances of winning a ring

  • No matter how nick styles his hair i will never not laugh at it

  • This is a great coverage but I feel really bad for the guy. That is ROUGH how he's been injured quite a few times.

  • Jabari Parker tore his ACL twice and got 20Ms he can still get a good deal one day

  • So am I the only one here gonna comment on Nick's hairline? Tbh I'm lost for words so I kinda see why..

    • Jade Desousa 😂😂😂 can’t stop looking after reading this

  • people talking like he can't come back from this. he already came back from Achilles. ACL is easier to get back from .

  • “Switch gears” is a regular phrase 😂😂 thats how uk that female was over thinkin lavar comments 😭

  • If Kd and Klay can come back, Boogie can!

  • Nick's hair looks awful

  • Just turned 29. He’s still young I think he’s still has a chance. Just have to rearrange his game probably

  • I really wish he’d cut that hair 🤦‍♂️

  • I feel for him but he’s rich af so he probably does not even care for himself

  • The Los Angeles (Kentucky Wildcat) Lakers..

  • 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

  • Listen to what Nick is saying. He started the video off just tearing him to shreds. lmao. imagine being that player watching this

  • 😂😂😂

  • What was her point in the beginning

  • Maybe what he’s going through now it karma for the disrespect he’s shown to so many officials and opposing players throughout his career

  • check out the short silence after the Host said let's switch gear lol

  • Dam, Dam ,Dam...sorry to hear that!!!!

  • Should’ve stayed with Warriors honestly

  • I hope that Boogie comes back. He is still young enough to make it back.

    • I hope so, but he will never see the type of money that maybe he was hoping for
