NBA ROLE: ALL-WORLD PIVOT

 

DeMarcus Cousins: a ridiculously gifted All-Star pivot; basketball unicorn: when it comes to body type, an inside-out skill set & rugged aggression down low, it’s tough to peg a comparison; ‘BBQ chicken’ when Boogie gets down on the block – full deck: turnaround hooks & Js, spin cycles, step throughs, and thunderous dunks (after bodying up defenders) are the norm; new wave center: shooting more and more threes these days*, can go coast to coast and finish as a near-300 pounder, unguardable down low; average defender – takes charges but has difficulty locking down the paint/defending the rim; beast on the boards: Boogie is an automatic double-double every night; needs to avoid picking up silly fouls, learn to stay level-headed if a call doesn’t go his way**; DIFF. BREED when healthy?; signed w/ Lakers (Summer '19) – Undisputed X-Factor or more in 2020?

 

*does damage with straightaway, trail triples

**poor body language is oft a topic for discussion when it comes to Boogie – if something doesn’t go his way, Cousins should put on his poker face instead of giving the opposition ammunition to advance the situation
