DeMarcus Cousins is working extra hard this offseason and one motivation is Alvin Gentry’s plans of playing him as a “point center”.
In an interview with Fletcher Mackel of WDSU Sports on Friday, the New Orleans Pelicans coach revealed Boogie has hired Julius Randle’s trainer Amoila Cesar after watching the latter’s body transformation pics on Instagram.
Via The Bird Writes:
“I would say that I was pleasantly surprised. I just saw him last week, three days ago actually. The thing that he’s done and the work that he’s put in, this is something he’s done himself. He contacted the guy after seeing — I think Julius Randle is going to be a real selling ticket for this guy — if anybody looked at social media and saw Julius Randle, the forward from the Lakers, he had a before picture and after picture. After just four weeks of training with this guy, it was tremendous.”
Gentry continued, “When I saw DeMarcus, his body looked great. He invited us to his house for lunch; he’s eating really healthy — he’s got a chef that he’s hired. I was really, really excited about what he’s taken from the standpoint of trying to get himself ready for the season and obviously he feels like this is a very important season for him.”
Okay, so still waiting for DMC to show off those abs like Randle did but he definitely looks fitter.
