Boogie On Down: The Best Kicks DeMarcus Cousins Wore As A Sacramento King

It’s a day we always figured would happen but hoped would never come to pass (mostly because it was a given the Kings would somehow screw up any deal and give friend of the blog Nick Engvall a heart attack); DeMarcus Cousins has been traded and is no longer a member of the Sacramento Kings. After six and a half tumultuous seasons of potential unfulfilled for a variety of reasons, Cousins is headed to the New Orleans Pelicans to team up with fellow NBA All-Star and Kentucky big man Anthony Davis to form the most intriguing superstar duo since Penny Hardaway thought it would be a good idea to call his team-up with Jason Kidd Backcourt2000.

Cousins leaves behind an interesting legacy in Sacramento. There’s no doubt he’s one of the most talented players to ever wear a Kings uniform and was beloved for his contributions to the community off the court – watching his emotional goodbye to the fans helps you realize he’s mature enough to know there’s a difference between the Kings and the city – but his tenure is a scorched earth marred by suspensions, technical fouls, fired coaches and executives that were unable to provide him a winning environment. It was time for a change both for the Kings and Cousins and while this trade looks soooooooooooooooooo bad for GM Vlade Divac considering what they got in return, uh, yeah, it just looks bad for the Kings. If Buddy Hield doesn’t become Steph Curry in a few years…

Usually when a star player, particularly one that loves to wear heat like Boogie, moves to a different team, we salivate at the possibilities for them to wear totally new kicks that weren’t possible because of their previous team’s color schemes. The thing is, Boogie wore whatever the hell he wanted and didn’t necessarily always adhere to the Kings’ purple motif. Sure, we might see him wear a pair Playoffs Air Jordan 11s or Flu Game 12s now that he’s with the Pelicans, but Boogie was all about exploring the color palette in Sacramento. As we get ready for Frontcourt2000 (see what we did there?), here’s a look back at some of our favorite Boogie Cousins sneaker moments during his time with the Kings.
