VIDEO: DeMarcus Cousins Admits he Was 'Ready to Quit' After Suffering Latest Injury

DeMarcus Cousins tore his Achilles with the New Orleans Pelicans last season before joining up with the stars on the Warriors. He suffered yet another injury when he banged up his quad in the first round of the playoffs, and according to Boogie himself, in an interview with Rachel Nichols, he was "ready to quit" after the latest ailment kept him out of much of the Warriors' postseason run.

Boogie needs to be commended for his honesty and openness. When you're as dominant as he was, the idea that you may never reach that level of peak performance ever again due to a fluke injury could cause a weaker-minded player to throw the towel in.

Not Cousins.

Boogie's recent run of injuries has been extremely unfortunate, and prevented him from contributing to teams during pivotal stretches. Fortunately he made a quick recovery from his latest ailment, and is back on the floor for the Warriors in the finals.

We're thankful that Cousins' injuries didn't cause him to step away from the game, as he's a force to be reckoned with when at full strength.
