Things have not always been easy for DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins, the four-time NBA All-Star who was drafted by the Golden State Warriors last year as a free agent.

The move earned Cousins even more haters, as he went to a team that was already stocked with all-star players, including Steph Curry and Kevin Durant.

“I had haters before, I just got more now,” he says in the above spot. “Do I care? No.”

Before he even got a chance to really debut with the NBA Championship team, he blew his Achilles tendon and spent most of 2018 going through a grueling recovery process. He finally made his debut in January 2019, and appears to be working his way back.

“You’ve gotta got through a storm to find some sunshine,” he says.

And there’s more to the eight-year NBA vet than physical prowess on the boards. He’s been called a “head case,” but he spends time volunteering with kids and works hard off the court.

“My satisfaction comes from helping as many people as I can,” Cousins says.

The Resurgence: DeMarcus Cousins premieres Saturday, April 13 at 8/7 p.m. on Showtime.
