Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins became the latest former Kentucky Wildcats to fall victim to Jimmy Kimmel during Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night.
To level the playing field, Kimmy used the EQ-WHEEL-IZER. The wheel had several choices: wearing Hulk Hands, having to play the marching band bass drum, Bubble Wrap, wearing shoes on one’s hands, being seated in an office chair, or balancing an egg on a spoon. If not for the EQ-WHEEL-IZER, the NBA players would always win given their height advantage over the ABC late night host. When Cousins spun the wheel, it stopped on having to play the marching bass drum.
Not surprisingly, Cousin Sal, who refereed the game, called Cousins for a technical foul while Marv Albert handled the play by play duties on the sideline.
“You won fair and square, so congratulations,” Cousins said in defeat to Kimmel.
During the NBA finals, ABC has given Kimmel a perch to bring his late night show to prime time. Many NBA players have appeared over the years, including former Wildcat and Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo in a Skype Scavenger Hunt against Tyson Chandler.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry fell in defeat to Kimmel on Thursday night before Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals.
