The past few years have been rough for DeMarcus Cousins. He dedicated himself to the city of Sacramento and was randomly traded at the All-Star break to New Orleans because they didn’t want to give him the max contract he deserved.
Then he played alongside Anthony Davis, a player who has a fairly similar skillset. Then he popped his Achilles and missed his first ever opportunity to play in the postseason before New Orleans let him walk in free agency.
But he signed with the Golden State Warriors, an organization that used to be known for their injury rehab, and it looked like he was about to win his first ever championship. Anddd then the Warriors lost to Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors.
Oh, and he tore his ACL and missed the entirety of this season as a Laker.
Shit went real bad real quick for Boogie Cousins.
But in the midst of this chaos taking place in this country after the brutal death of George Lloyd by the police, DeMarcus rose like a phoenix from the ashes and finally secured his first ever championship trophy by dunking on a former foe.
Grant Napear is the Sacramento Kings play-by-play announcer for their TV network who has often criticized DeMarcus Cousins and antagonized him to a point where you question how the man feels about black people. Never a good look when your job is dependent on the labor of black men and you just outwardly dislike all of them.
Boogie set a racist bear trap for Napear and caught him.

Grant Napear was promptly fired following this All Lives Matter tweet. BAHAHAHAHA.
Here’s what his company said explaining his firing:
“His recent comments about the Black Lives Matter movement do not reflect the views or values of Bonneville International Corporation. The timing of Grant’s tweet was particularly insensitive. After reviewing the matter carefully, we have made the difficult decision to part ways with Grant.”
Get his ass.
Congratulations on the ring, Boogie. You deserve this.
