The Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson has nothing but praises for his former Warriors teammate DeMarcus Cousins, who signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason:

Per Los Angeles Times: “DeMarcus is a great teammate and I developed such a great chemistry with him, coming off screens and cutting off from posts. I’ll miss him. I know he’s going to be a huge asset for the Lakers. When they slow it down, he’s so good on the block and such a great decision maker.

People don’t realize what a great decision maker he is. Above all, I love his will to compete. He was very hurt last year during our Finals run but he was still out there making a huge impact and getting double-doubles and he won us a couple games, honestly.

He’s just such a gamer and I’m going to miss competing with him. L.A. got a very good player, who’s very hungry. I know he’s eager to get out there and show everybody he’s still one of the best players in the world because he has all the talent,” Thompson said.
