Newest Warrior DeMarcus Cousins already has a favorite teammate with Golden State, and it's one he has played with in the past.
"Just to put this out there, my favorite by far is Klay," Cousins said Thursday at his introductory press conference at the Warriors' facility in Oakland. "Our short time in the summer, for him to be a dull as he is, there's never a dull moment."
Cousins played with Thompson, as well as Warriors Kevin Durant and Draymond Green, at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Cousins averaged 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds in eight games with Team USA on his way to winning gold.
"I really enjoyed my time with Klay, but they're great guys," Cousins said. "Me and Draymond clicked right away. We're two goofballs who like to joke around a lot. We clicked right away. Same thing with KD and same thing with Steph.
"It's a great group of guys, easygoing people ... outside of Draymond," Cousins said as he laughed. "But it's a great group, and we'll mesh well."
Even though he's Cousins' favorite Warrior, in classic Klay fashion, he still hasn't reached out to his new center.
