DeMarcus Cousins is usually wearing a scowl while he is on court. Coincidentally, he is also usually outplaying anyone who guards him on the court and his physical play and mentality are a big reason for that. Without knowing him you would think he is a mean guy based on facial expressions alone but he has a reason for why people think he always looks like that.


“I’m an ugly dude,” he said. “I really can’t help how my face looks. You’re just gonna have to take it. Some people like it, some people don’t. It’s just my face.”


“If I was shorter, I don’t think I’d be intimidating,” Cousins said. “They’d be like, ‘That’s a little ugly person.’ Because I’m big, intimidating.”

Cousins is pretty intimidating but that is exactly how you want to be in his line of work. It’s also part of the reason he is one of the best front court players in the entire league.
