Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins has been one of the NBA's best big men this season, and yet, he's currently not in line to start in the 2016 All-Star Game.

After watching this campaign video, you should consider voting for Boogie the next time you cast a ballot. His performance on the court and on camera are both at an All-Star level.
