DeMarcus Cousins hits three near center court logo

Stephen Curry would be embarrassed to take that shot.

That is Kings’ center DeMarcus Cousins, arguably the best center in the NBA (I’d have him second behind Marc Gasol), playing this weekend in a University of Kentucky alumni vs. University of North Carolina alumni exhibition.

Cousins has been working on his jumper this summer, allowing him to step out and space the floor as George Karl calls for in his system (and as Cousins is going to need to if paired with rookie Willie Cauley-Stein at all). He hit all five threes in this game, which you don’t want to read too much into because your pickup game on the blacktop this weekend had better defense played. Still, leave him alone and he can hurt you. From some pretty ridiculous range.

Hat tip to Eye on Basketball for finding a good video of the shot.
