Just eight days ago, immediately following the NBA All Star Game, Sacramento Kings star DeMarcus Cousins was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans. After six and a half seasons as a franchise player for the Kings, he was off to ply his trade in a brand new city.
If this video is any indication, Cousins has quickly made himself at home in NOLA by embracing one of the city’s great traditions — the Zulu parade, in celebration of Mardi Gras.
Baton Rouge Advocate reporter Emma Discher posted footage to Twitter of Cousins riding aboard a float in the annual parade with what she identified as panties on his head.
Cousins was atop the float with fellow Pelicans star Anthony Davis, as they waved at revelers along the parade route. Fortunately, the Pelicans have the day off, before they take on the Pistons tomorrow.
