NBA All-Star voting is in full swing, and John Calipari is trying to help DeMarcus Cousins get a spot in the Western Conference’s crowded front court.
Calipari drew some laughs earlier this week when he asked what “YOLO” meant. Now he’s turning the joke around to cast a ballot for the former Kentucky star’s All-Star campaign.

This has become a tradition for Calipari. He had another funny video last year endorsing some of his former Wildcat players for the All-Star game.
Cousins is averaging 28 points (which would be a career high), 10.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game this season. He’s reportedly on the verge of signing a massive $207 million contract extension with the Sacramento Kings.
As of last week, Cousins was sixth in the voting among front court players in the West.
