After years of rumors that DeMarcus Cousins wants out of Sacramento, there are reports that Cousins is on the brink of signing a massive $200 million deal that will keep him with the Kings for the foreseeable future. In the past few weeks, Cousins has said a number of times that he considers Sacramento his home, going as far to tell NBA TV on January 4 that he wants his jersey to hang in the Kings’ rafters when he retires. So, it sounds like Boogie’s staying put.
Last night, Cousins was asked about said rumors and had some fun with reporters, turning the mics on them and asking if they would like him to stay in Sacramento. The results — especially in light of Boogie’s recent run-ins with the media — are hilarious:

The two reporters Boogie singled out said “no comment” and “no,” but I’ll say this about DeMarcus: no matter his antics, you can’t call him boring. For that reason alone, their answer should be a resounding “YES.”
