DeMarcus Cousins has had his ups and downs since being drafted in the 2010 NBA draft out of the University of Kentucky. Over the weekend, it was announced that the Sacramento Kings were signing Cousins to a 4 year/$62 million contract. At the end of the Kings’ press conference today announcing the signing, A Royal Pain blog states Cousins quietly announced he would be donating $1 million to help Sacramento families in need.
Whether an athlete announces it or not, it doesn’t matter to me. Provided it isn’t simply a PR move, I’ll applaud it every single time.
Well done, Mr. Cousins. Well done.
