WATCH: DeMarcus Cousins dunks on Kevin Durant at Warriors practice
DeMarcus Cousins could be nearing his NBA debut for the 2018-19 season and nobody know that better than Kevin Durant.
The man known as 'Boogie' threw one down on the Warriors forward on Friday and yelled "that's game" at his floored team-mate.
Cousins has been recovering from an Achilles injury he suffered last season, but has spent some time with Golden State's G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors.
The 28-year-old is a four-time All-Star who averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 2017-18 and is rumoured to be targeting a return early in 2019.

The Warriors are currently 21-11 and third in the Western Conference. With Cousins available, Golden State's starting line-up could feature five All-Star calibre players.
Cousins is working on his conditioning, so he is as close to 100 per cent as possible when he finally dons a Warriors jersey, and Golden State are in no rush to get him on the court.
Golden State will take on the Dallas Mavericks in Oracle Arena on Saturday.
