Lakers fan Jerry Hairston Jr. learning the Warriors signed Boogie Cousins is most NBA fans right now
The Golden State Warriors keep finding ways to frustrate fans of the other 29 NBA teams -- even Lakers fans, who were still basking in the glow of adding LeBron James with a four-year deal on Sunday night.
On Monday afternoon, the Lakers added Rajon Rondo to the mix, and Dodgers broadcaster Jerry Hairston Jr. was excited, figuring this could lead to a free-agent signing of DeMarcus Cousins:

If you're familiar with how things are going in the NBA right now, you know that didn't happen. It was the Warriors who inked Cousins to a one-year deal, and this news was not what Hairston wanted to read while on the Spectrum SportsNet LA set ahead of Monday night's Pirates-Dodgers game:

Jerry pretty much speaks for every non-Warriors fan out there at the moment, as summed up by this exchange with Dontrelle Willis.
