DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins has revealed that he’s ditching the No. 0 he wore in New Orleans and Golden State in favor of the No. 15 he wore during his time with the Sacramento Kings and before that, the Kentucky Wildcats.
As we know, LeBron James will also be switching back to No. 6 next season, after he gave his No. 23 to Anthony Davis.

The six-time All Star told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols in June that he was “ready to quit” after that devastating quad injury in the first round of the 2019 playoffs.
“I was just ready to quit,” Cousins explained to Nichols. “Like, throw the towel in. … Human nature is the first thing. It’s like, ‘Why? Why me? Why now? What did I do wrong? Why do I deserve this?’ And that’s not always the case. It’s usually [that] it’s repaying you for the next moment.
“This is you putting your armor on. Slowly but surely. Because your next moment’s gonna be even tougher.”

Looks like Boogie will at least play another season with the Lakers. He has a lot to prove if he ever wants another big payday. Let’s see if a number change, and a change of scenery helps.
