DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings is known as a hothead but he has quite the wit as well. So a European journalist asked Cousins about where Slovenia is. Cousins’ retort was an instant classic.
Classic U.S. moment: European journalist to DeMarcus Cousins: "Do you know where Slovenia is?" Cousins: "No, do you know where Alabama is?"

I don’t know if the journalist was earnestly asking DMC if he knew where Slovenia was or if he was trying to test his intelligence. Either way, that was a great response by Cousins.
To be fair, I don’t know exactly where either place is if you showed me the world map. I would have a general idea where but I wouldn’t exactly be able to pinpoint it. Alabama is next to California, right?
Team USA will face Slovenia in a few hours for the right to advance to the semifinals of the 2014 FIBA World Cup.
