DeMarcus Cousins ‘Boogie’

DeMarcus Cousins received his nickname ‘Boogie’ from Rod Strickland, who coached him at the University of Kentucky. Strickland described Cousins as a player that had rare buoyancy for a big man and was able to do finesse moves that many guards couldn’t even do.

As a NBA center Cousins is most often seen dominating in the paint, but he also has great dribbling skills and is comfortable taking the ball coast-to-coast.

If you had thought that his nickname might have had something to do with being able to dance, he can do that too.
