Brittney Griner challenges DeMarcus Cousins to 1-on-1: ‘I’m better’

Looks like Team USA Basketball doesn’t just have competition brewing against other countries; there’s a small rivalry between two key players of the men’s and women’s Olympic teams.

Brittney Griner, the 6’8″ center for the Phoenix Mercury, told ESPN “I mean I’m better, and I know that kinda gets at him. It’s OK. It’s OK, little man.”

Who is the ‘him’ Griner refers to? DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings. This comes after Cousins said that Griner would only measure up as the third best post player on the USA Men’s Olympic Basketball Team.

“I’m glad she’s so confident in her abilities,” Cousins said. “She’s also a little delusional.”

Kevin Durant, who recently signed with the Golden State Warriors, isn’t so sure that she could pull it off. Diana Taurasi, Griner’s Mercury teammate, has her money on Griner. But it seems as if it might not be such an easy feat. Carmelo Anthony and DeAndre Jordan both said they would pay to see that event go down.

U.S. women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma was asked to weigh in on the proposed matchup, and he was pretty emphatic about who he thought would win.

“If there’s no referee, I’m gonna got to the ATM and I’m gonna sell my house, and I’m gonna put all my money on DeMarcus Cousins,” he said.
