There’s a pretty good chance at some point during your adolescence, you played the game ‘knockout’. You remember it, right? Here’s a small refresher from Wikipedia:
Knockout (also known as Lightning, Gotcha, Killer, Elimination, Poison, Crash, Fireball, Dynamite, Thunder, Thunderbump, Putout, Bumpout, Speed, Hurricane, Tornado, Ultimate, Scrum, Chicago Shootout and Bump) is a basketball activity. The objective of the game is to make shots in order to survive elimination and, in turn, eliminate other players. The basic rule of the game is if the trailing player makes a shot before the leading player, the leading player is eliminated. The winner of the game is the last remaining player.
With a hat tip to News 10’s Sean Cunningham, here we have Sacramento Kings star DeMarcus Cousins at his own basketball camp, participating in a game of knockout. All is going well until Cousins yips on the final shot, getting knocked out by one his campers, resulting in laughs and smiles all around.
That DeMarcus Cousins. Such a bad guy.
