Author of a few notable appearances last year with the Nuggets, DeMarcus Cousins remains without a contract at the dawn of the new season. He continues to train hard, and recently appeared physically transformed!
And to think that only five years ago, he appeared as an inevitable All-Star in a Western Conference yet provided in terms of talented big men. Since this period when he dominated in the racket with the Pelicans, DeMarcus Cousins saw a terrible descent into hell, which does not seem to want to stop. This is also reflected in its current situation.
A free agent after interesting stints in Milwaukee and Denver in recent months, Boogie has still not found a team in which to express himself on the coming season. Long-awaited return to the Nuggets, it finally seems destined to have to draw a cross on this track. However, there is no question of abandoning all plans to return to the league and fight for minutes.
DeMarcus Cousins become unrecognizable this summer?
After being perceived as a star for a long time, and having received the salary that accompanies this status, Cousins had to completely revise his requirements downwards, especially financially. Without abandoning the idea of recovering a place in the gratin of the league. For this, it could be that he has started a great metamorphosis in this offseason, as can be seen on his last Instagram video:
Despite the poor quality of the images, as well as the many effects and filters that have been added to them, the silhouette of DMC can easily be observed. And this one seems clearly finer than in the past! Less chubby, the 32-year-old pivot thus seems to be able to move even better than before, which paradoxically already represented one of his strong points vis-à-vis his size.
More than his ball lifts or his 3-point step-backs, Cousins impresses with the speed of his penetrations, which allows him to drop his direct opponents on this sequence. All while maintaining a brute force that he still uses wonderfully to maneuver in position. So many images that may intrigue NBA scouts, and why not offer him a new chance in the league!
While waiting to find a place in a franchise, DeMarcus Cousins has obviously not been idle this summer, as evidenced by his very thin physical appearance. To see if this change will allow him to earn points with the leaders!
