January 26th, DeMarcus Cousins suffered a full tear to his left Achilles tendon which will keep him out the rest of the season. Several superstars came back from this injury but were never the same, such as Kobe Bryant, Elgin Baylor and Patrick Ewing although all were much older than Cousins at the time of their injuries. One exception is Dominique Wilkins who maintained his points and rebounds stats before and after. Wilkins was 32 at the time versus Boogie who turns 28 this year, he was shorter and weighed less (Wilkins at 6’8″ and 230 lbs. vs. Cousins at 6’11” and 270 lbs.) Only time will tell what the future holds for this very talented superstar!
BOOGIE, stay positive and work hard during the long, difficult rehab process. I have faith in you and still want to see you in purple and gold starting next season!!!!!
