There are many NBA players who are mostly known by their nicknames. Golden State Warriors player DeMarcus Cousins’ is known as “Boogie” but the player recently claimed that he doesn’t want to be called like that anymore.
“I want my family and myself to be comfortable wherever I am at the time, and just be able to relax and kind of let my hair down,” he told The Undefeated. “I’m going to be judged. My life is in a fishbowl. They gonna love you and they gonna hate you. I’m being the best me every day.”
“It’s just like, Jesus Christ! It’s so much extra put on with ‘Boogie,'” he continued, adding “I don’t want to be Boogie. I just wanna be DeMarcus.”
