DeMarcus Cousins host shopping spree for children


DeMarcus Cousins may get a bad rap around the NBA, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a kind and caring individual.

Cousins, or “Santa Cuz” in this case, took 100 underprivileged children from the surround Sacramento area on a Christmas shopping spree on Monday. Each child received $200 to spend on anything they wanted at the Arden Fair Mall.

The kids bought items for themselves as well as their families before getting a chance to meet the Kings star center. In an interview with ABC10 out of Sacramento, Cousins explained why doing this for children means so much to him as a person.

“I grew up in these kids’ shoes – not as fortunate – I didn’t have the best Christmases,” Cousins said to the network. “Me having my (celebrity) status, or whatever you want to call it, I’m just playing my part in giving back to the kids.”

Athletes are as close to real-life superheroes as many kids will see in their lifetimes. For them to give back to the community, especially during a time that is all about giving, means more than any on-court accomplishment.

Kudos to you, Santa Cuz!
