Las Vegas – Vegas Sports Daily’s TJ Turkson had an opportunity to chop things up with enigmatic and mercurial Warriors big man DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins in the summer of 2016 at Team USA training camp. In this interview, conducted prior to the selection of the team and their subsequent departure for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio where they would subsequently go on secure the Gold medal. Among other things, watch as Boogie thoughtfully reflects on his place amongst the elite Bigs, the difference between a regular season NBA team’s training camp and Team USA camp -which takes place following the conclusion of the NBA season- and also hilariously makes sure to remind some of the gathered masses about the importance of respecting one’s personal space.
