DeMarcus Cousins had 11 points and 4 rebounds in just 12 minutes during the 2016 NBA All-Star Game. Boogie was a perfect 5-for-5 from the field and was on the winning team, but as usual, he the actions of those surrounding him left him with his trademark scowl.

I swear, no one in the history of basketball is more visibly pained by everyone else on a basketball court as DeMarcus Cousins. Just look at how much fun Pau Gasol is having in this same picture.

Update: Boogie actually addressed his face over the weekend. Via the Sacramento Bee:

"Cousins said it’s not his fault his look unsettles others, explaining it as only he could. “I’m an ugly dude,” he said. “I really can’t help how my face looks. You’re just gonna have to take it. Some people like it, some people don’t. It’s just my face.” “If I was shorter, I don’t think I’d be intimidating,” Cousins said. “They’d be like, ‘That’s a little ugly person.’ Because I’m big, intimidating."
