No.11 seed DeMarcus Cousins needs a win, in life in general. The Lakers have made it clear that they are far more likely to resign Dwight Howard than Cousins which leaves the 6’10” big man on the open market, and not so ripe for the picking. But when it comes to this Friday night he has a lot to feel confident about. Boogie recently signed with a gaming group NRG and is playing playing Warzone on Twitch during the penning of this article. Yes indeed, Cousins is a gamer which will bode well for him in his match-up against Drummond.
DeMarcus Cousins has +2500 odds to win the entire tournament.
DeMarcus Cousins finally has something to celebrate, making it through the First Round of the tournament with a 69-63 win.
