Video surfaced Thursday morning on Twitter that appeared to show NBA stars Draymond Green, DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe, and John Wall crashing a pickup basketball game in the Bahamas.
In the video — which, by the stitched-together quality of the editing, appears to have originally surfaced on either Instagram Stories or Snapchat — Cousins can be seen shooting jumpers in flip-flops while an unidentified, much shorter individual in a red shirt contests his shots. Bledsoe, Wall, and Green are seen hanging out on the sidelines, laughing and having a good time.
A Bahamas-geotagged Instagram posted Thursday by David Best (@flaveforreal) showing the four aforementioned NBA players appears to confirm the location of the pickup video.

The reason behind Cousins, Bledsoe, Wall, and Green’s visit to the Bahamas is unknown. Cousins, Bledsoe, and Wall, of course, all played college ball at the University of Kentucky, and Draymond and Boogie are reportedly good friends.
Green has stayed busy this offseason, inking a four-year, $100 million extension that will keep him in a Warriors uniform through the 2024 season. Cousins, meanwhile, is now plying his trade as a Los Angeles Laker, where he is reportedly fully recovered from the quad injury that hampered him during the 2019 playoffs.
