DeMarcus Cousins ascension to the top of the NBA's big man hierarchy happened quicker than any of us expected. The dude gets better, stronger, meaner every season. In just his sixth year in the league, the 25-year-old Kentucky product leads all power forwards and centers in scoring (24.5 PPG) and is fifth in total rebounding (10.6 RPG) all while dealing with back and foot injuries. Speaking of DeMarcus Cousins' feet...
The intrepid sleuths over at Reddit/r/nba unearthed a startling discovery that may or may not have outed Boogie as superhuman. If their findings are in fact valid, we can definitively say that he is at least EXTRA human, as he would have one more body part than the vast majority of us. There could be more, who knows?
You tell us: how many toes does DeMarcus Cousins have?
Polydactylism, the genetic abnormality that causes people to develop extra digits in utero, occurs disproportionately in certain populations, but is actually fairly common (about two in every 1,000 births). According to his autobiography, Drew Carey has six toes on his right foot, as well, so it doesn't necessarily equate to increased athletic ability. For the record, that is the last time you will see Drew Carey compared to DeMarcus Cousins.
