DeMarcus Cousins’ Slam Magazine Tribute to White Chocolate


For the first time since 2003, A Sacramento King is on the cover of Slam Magazine.  Before Chris Webber graced the cover, Jason “White Chocolate” William stoically chewed on a toothpick before winning Rookie of the Year in 1999.  Big Cuz brought along a toothpick to honor him in this week’s issue.

In the one-on-one interview, DeMarcus stated that he is the best big man in the League “and it’s not even close,” with Anthony Davis a distant-second.  The entertaining interview features 26 f-bombs and this wonderful segment about how his basketball life began.

SLAM: When did you start working out, when you were 12?

DMC: (Laughs) That’s country strength. That’s natural strength.

SLAM: Growing up in Alabama with that strength, how come you didn’t get steered towards football?

DMC: Like everybody in Alabama, I played. But I was too tall and lanky and thin. My mom didn’t want me playing, she thought I’d get hurt, and she forced me to start playing ball.

SLAM: And did you have a love for it right away?

DMC: Nah, I couldn’t stand basketball. But the more I did it, the more I started to love it.
