Thinner DeMarcus Cousins feels ‘best I have my whole career’

DeMarcus Cousins has battled with his weight his whole career. The 6-foot-11 big man is listed at 270 pounds.

In the NBA it doesn’t particularly matter how much you weigh, but it does matter if you’re out of shape and can’t get back on defense. As we heard earlier this summer, Cousins may not be facing that struggle this coming year. He had reportedly dropped a ton of weight.

After seeing Cousins compete in the NBA Africa game Saturday, fans saw the reports were confirmed: Cousins is noticeably thinner and lighter on his feet.

Cousins told The Undefeated he isn’t sure how much weight he’s lost.

“I don’t know. I really don’t know,” Cousins said. “I lost a lot of weight. I did my little training program in L.A. and I like the results. I’m good. I feel lighter on my feet. I’m moving a lot better than I have in previous years. It doesn’t hurt to wake up in the morning and the aches and pains have kind of gone away. It’s definitely benefited my body a lot more.”

The Pelicans’ front line may be a problem in the West this year.
