There are a lot of new things about DeMarcus Cousins these days. He starts the upcoming NBA season with the New Orleans Pelicans for the first time. He’s looking slim and trim, and he’s optimistic about the Pelicans’ season.

Cousins gave a hearty “hell no” when he was asked if he expects officials to treat him more fairly this season. When asked whether that has only happened with older refs and if new officials are being more fair, Boogie proposed his theory as to why that’s not the case.
