DeMarcus Cousins used to be one of the league’s most skilled centers; however, he is no longer an NBA player. Yet, “Boogie” Cousins had some wild things to say about his abilities and what he thought of himself. Cousins claimed to be the “third best center in the league” on the KG Certified podcast with Kevin Garnett. The last time he played for an NBA team was in the 2021-22 season with the Denver Nuggets. In that season, he averaged 8.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game.

For Cousins to claim that he was “currently” the third best threw many people off. Cousins’ career spreads across 7 NBA Teams after he was selected as 5th pick in the 2010 NBA draft.

After a long absence from the court, Cousins was able to express himself on the KG Certified Podcast hosted by Showtime. The league appears to have moved on from Cousins following the injuries that forced him to miss games. Many frequently dismiss him as a great player because of his erratic conduct on and off the court, which seems incredibly unjust. But, when “Boogie” makes such statements, it becomes difficult for fans to support the player and agree with what he says.

Now, let’s look at some fan reactions to DeMarcus Cousins’ statements. After he called himself “currently the third-best center in the world,” fans pounced on him.

“What league?” is the question currently asked by NBA fans on social media. And rightly so, as DeMarcus Cousins isn’t even a part of any NBA franchise currently. In fact, his last run with the Nuggets was anything close to attractive. For Cousins to even suggest something mildly similar to being a “top 3” raises questions. Fans haven’t stopped asking questions and roasting him since his words went viral.

Cousins is finding it difficult to accept that he is no longer the same player he was with the Sacramento Kings. While time has passed, he has not moved on and hence remains confident. Fans were quick to deflate Cousins’ bubble of confidence by mocking him on Twitter. Let’s look at their reactions to his statements. 

Making such statements doesn’t give a good look for Cousins, who at one point was respected in the league. With such erratic behavior outside of the court, Cousins seems to be losing that respect along with his fans. It will be interesting to see whether he still has a future in the league or not.
