What? You read that correctly.
Do you need to read it again? Fine. I’ll wait.
Yes, the loveable DeMarcus Cousins was not only spotted reading Shakespeare recently, but was teaching a class on it. Professor Cousins is in the house.
Okay, okay, that’s not exactly believable but it was part of a promo video from Relativity Sports, the agency who represents Cousins among other NBA players.
The company is headed by power agent Dan Fegan, who is the same man who more or less suggested Cousins (read: he, Fegan) would request a trade from the Kings if Cousins didn’t get the maximum contract extension he feels he’s deserving of.
Fegan is usually known for his hardball stances (he represents Dwight Howard, so, do I really need to explain anything?) but this video seems to poke fun at the lighter side of things – a welcome change.
