Boogie has a future position as a coach?

How awesome, hilarious, and ironic would it be if someday DeMarcus Cousins became a head coach? He has always been the smartest guy on the court (maybe except for Rajon Rondo), and last night Gregg Popovich gave him a chance to prove it.

Popovich also let Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Kawhi Leonard draw up plays. Asked who impressed him the most, Pop responded:

"DeMarcus Cousins," Popovich said. "We gave him the clipboard and he said get out of my way, go flat on the baseline and I'm shooting it, and he made the three. That might be the only one that worked all night long. But they had a ball. Great young guys. You can tell how much they love it, and just seeing them interacting with each other and the humor back and forth and everything, it was a great show for the fans."
