DeMarcus Cousins Lost to Jimmy Kimmel in One-on-One (He Was Wearing A Bass Drum)

Monday June 9th, 2014


DeMarcus Cousins stopped by Jimmy Kimmel's NBA Finals pre-game show to play the host in a game of one-on-one... while wearing a bass drum.

The late night host unleashed an impressive drop step followed by draining a mid-range shot for a 3 to 2 victory.

The generally bruising Cousins was too kind to use the bass drum as a weapon, which is surprising coming from a guy who led the league in technical fouls and was third in personal fouls in the regular season. Kimmel is now 2-0 against NBA players, after taking down a wheelchair bound Stephen Curry before Game 1.
