If you're a Warriors fan reading this, LeBron James probably had the same reaction you did to DeMarcus Cousins' injury.
The Lakers superstar showed support for Cousins on Twitter, minutes after the Warriors center left Game 2 on Monday night with a quad injury.

Queue NBA pundits' cynicism that LeBron is just trying to recruit the pending free agent in three ... two ... one ...
Cousins ruptured his left Achilles in January of last year, but he has been relatively injury-free since returning to the court this season. He started to look like his old self down the stretch, and ultimately finished the regular season averaging 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds in 25.7 minutes per game.
The 28-year-old struggled in his first career NBA playoff game Saturday, and played just 25 total minutes in the first two games of the Warriors' series with the Clippers after waiting eight seasons to finally play in the postseason. Depending on the results of his MRI on Tuesday, the wait for his third playoff game might last a little longer.
