VIDEO: Kings T’s
ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the surprise inclusions on this summer’s U.S.A. Basketball for the FIBA Basketball World Cup squad was Sacramento’s DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins. It wasn’t because of his talent — Cousins is one of the most versatile and skilled big men in the NBA. If anything, people we surprised Cousins made it because in the past, his attitude had worked against him.
But Cousins was terrific in Spain, even at times showing restraint. (That’s two for flinching, Valanciunas.) Now, with the Kings back together in Sacramento and prepping for a new season, Boogie has apparently set a new goal for himself. As we see in this Instagram picture from Reggie Evans, Cousins is hoping to cut down on the league-leading 16 technical fouls he received last season, by a significant amount.
As Evans noted, “Myboi @boogiecousins goal for this year. 5 Technical this season. I feel like he can do it.”
