The United States will take on Goran Dragic and Slovenia in a quarterfinals matchup tomorrow at the FIBA Basketball World Cup. On paper, it’s a mismatch.
The David-versus-Goliath storyline prompted one European journalist to pose this loaded question to Demarcus Cousins today, basically asking “Do you even geography, Bro?”
Quick on his feet, the big man delivered the perfect response.
Classic U.S. moment: European journalist to DeMarcus Cousins: “Do you know where Slovenia is?” Cousins: “No, do you know where Alabama is?”

You see what he did there? Very clever.
For the record, Slovenia is slightly larger than New Jersey and slightly smaller than Massachusetts.
