After a lengthy negotiation, on Wednesday the Cleveland Cavaliers and big man Tristan Thompson agreed to a five-year, $82 million deal.
Shortly after the news broke, Sacramento Kings All-Star big man DeMarcus Cousins tweeted:
How much??? =3— DeMarcus Cousins (@boogiecousins) October 21, 2015
Now, we can't be certain Cousins was responding to Thompson's deal; perhaps he's a frugal eater and rightfully subtweeted a friend who blindsided him with an invite to an unexpectedly expensive restaurant.
But it's highly likely Cousins was reacting to the big money given, and one can see why: Cousins by virtually every metric is better than Thompson -- many consider him to be the best center in the league -- and yet in 2013 he signed for four years, $62 million.
In other words: Don't worry, Boogie. You'll get a whole lot, very soon.
