The only thing better than beating one Los Angeles Lakers big man? For DeMarcus Cousins, dunking on another. Watch the Sacramento Kings star easily go by Ed Davis off-the-dribble before rising for a powerful dunk on a helpless Robert Sacre.
This is Boogie at his best. No big man in basketball boasts his combination of size, quickness, and all-around skill, but all too often throughout his short NBA career Cousins has settled offensively. He’s a very talented shooter, and there are times a jump-shot is the right play. But this wasn’t one of them, and Cousins used the threat of his shot with a quick jab step to get by Davis and embarrass Sacre.
Once Boogie starts exercising better shot selection, he’ll be unstoppable offensively. Plays like this show why.
