Forget the fact the Pelicans are 0-3 since Boogie Cousins’ arrival… Forget the fact that they’re in a firefight for the 8th and final playoff spot in the West, and are trying to get Cousins assimilated with their system and his new teammates, and just lost another valuable game to do so when he was suspended for picking up yet another T.
In fact, forget it all, chill out and live it up for Mardi Gras. Because our hero Boogie has and is… My man is getting loose!
Per TMZ, yesterday he was quote: Sportin’ panties on his head and drinking from a bottle of Hennessy in the Mardi Gras parade.
Panties on head, Henny in hand. Of course. What did you expect?
You go to Paris, you hit the Eiffel Tower. You come to LA, you grab some snaps of the Hollywood sign. And when you hit up New Orleans, you wind up passed out next to a back-alley dumpster covered in beads and smelling like vomit and regret. That’s just what you do. You put BOOGIE in NOLA and he’s going to find a party. Hell, he’s going to BECOME the party.
He’s not in Sac-town anymore and he’s going to live like it. New Orleans took their shot, now they have to sit back and watch their new do take shots. I don’t have a huge problem with a guy living it up in New Orleans. Especially during Mardi Gras. It’s Mardis Gras, it’s New Orleans, and you’d be a fool not to enjoy it. Especially if you and your fellow All-Star big man are honorary grand marshals. And tempting as it is for people to clutch their pearls and scream, “DeMarcus is having too much fun in New Orleans!” It’s really not a big deal. You know how I know it’s not a big deal? Because the team was tweeting out video of Cousins and Davis in the parade.
Yes, the Pelicans are 0-3 since the trade. But no, the fact that Cousins is out there with women’s underwear on his head isn’t the reason. It was always going to take time for Cousins, Davis, and the rest of the Pelicans to get on the same page. The truth is, the team brought him there for a reason – to win games and make the playoffs. And they haven’t won a game since he got there and they’re four games out of the playoffs. Enjoying Mardi Gras and having women’s underwear on your head isn’t a problem. But not winning games is. And they’re running out of time to fix that.
And even worse than being on the outside looking in, is looking up at Sacramento, the team they fleeced to get Boogie. I’m not saying he has to win a world championship there; I am saying he’s got to get them into the playoffs… and in the very least, he sure as hell better make sure he has them finishing ahead of the team that gave up on them.
In the meantime, keep your dome, stay in your shoes, and party on big dude.
Hell, I wish it were me, quote, “sportin panties on my head and drinking from a bottle of Hennessy in the Mardi Gras parade.
