Boogie’s new tattoo

I don't get it

DeMarcus Cousins has released an official response to the haters by branding himself as ‘MISUNDERSTOOD’. It wouldn’t be my first choice for a tattoo, but you have to love the intimidating font and the Riddler-esque question mark in the background, or not.

    Not a big fan of it but to each its own…sounds like a cop out excuse. People hate on him for his on court antics, maybe some misunderstand him but you act like that, there will be haters. Just do work on the court and mature and all of a sudden you are not “misunderstood.”

    Love the ink Boogie.

    PS: This just hit me. Has anyone heard of Pitino being linked to the UMASS job? Rumor has it that the UMASS brass think Pitino would be a great fit for the “Minutemen.”

    why does this have to be related to his on the court attitude? why cant it be something related to him on a personal level? He’s more than a big body who is good at throwing a ball through a circle. I do believe that DeMarcus is misunderstood in many ways, on and off the court. Us UK fans should know this more than anybody. We all saw the goofy, fun loving, wouldn’t hurt a fly version of DeMarcus that we know is the real him. At UK when he would get worked up, we always saw that as passion. Sure, he doesn’t need to be attacking teammates and getting kicked out of practice. But maybe his passion isnt being accepted the way it was in college. In college you play ball because you love it. In the NBA you play ball for a paycheck. I think all the things he did this season that we saw that was “out of line” is the product of his passion not being accepted in the same way it was at UK. DeMarcus doesn’t need to change his game, or himself, he needs to change the way he shows his passion. Just like Kevin Garnett, his first few years in the NBA he didn’t know how to show his love for the game, over his career, he’s figured out how to convey it to his teammates how much he cares, and he’s learned how the keep the media off his back for the most part. DeMarcus is just beginning his journey in learning how to juggle the both. Boogie, you are misunderstood. I love the tattoo. We miss you here in BBN

    The thing that irritates me about this (not really) but it still does. It shows a lack of self awareness to improve as a person outside of basketball. If you are “misunderstood” by so many that you need a tatoo to symbolically represent it then most likely you have a character flaw that you need to correct. The sad thing is that when a person is at their core good natured as everyone things DeMarcus is these things are often easy to correct with simple actions and repetion of those actions. Misunderstood, maybe. Trying to be understood, No. Enjoying being misunderstood, yes.

    My only problem with it is the font and the colors. It is WAY too hard to read. From a distance, it will just look ragged, like his leg was bitten by a shark. (Yeah, I have been watching ‘Shark Week’….)

    (7)He couldn’t coach the “Minutemen”. Remember, it was only 15 seconds.(14) I couldn’t make out what it said either untill I read the article. It looked like a big scar. I do love Cousins though. The people who hate on him forget he is only a kid and sometimes, even though he looks like a man, he acts like a kid.

    I think he needs to find a new tattoo artist. The letters are horribly executed.
