Every year, the University of Kentucky puts together an alumni game which looks more like an NBA All-Star team roster than a collection of former talent.
Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins, who played at Kentucky one season has returned to participate in the alumni game since he was drafted, but this year things were a little different. He was mic’d up.
Cousins, who may have a second career in coaching considering (hey – if Rasheed Wallace can do it…) his love of standing on the sideline encouraging teammates was having an obvious blast at the game, which included him being shocked over Eric Bledsoe‘s (of the Phoenix Suns) ability to dunk where Cousins called him ‘chicken legs’.
The video showed Cousins showing off his softer side as well, giving game used items to children in the crowd, something he seems to do extremely often. My personal favorite moment may have been Cousins exchanging banter with a young girl behind the bench, asking her if she wanted to play.
Like most anything DMC does, it was a pretty entertaining two minutes of useless but at times hilarious chatter.
Fellow Sacramento King teammate and former Wildcat Patrick Patterson also took part in the game.
