The holiday season is here which, means it’s a time of giving gifts. Most of us are searching high and low for that perfect gift for our friends or family. Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins took it one step further and gave a Sacramento-area family a gift they’ll never forget: a new car.

The Kings are in the midst of their “Season of Doing Good” month and Cousins has already been heavily involved. Along with teammates Ben McLemore, Marco Bellinelli and Willie Cauley-Stein, Cousins has donated over $140,000 in tickets according to the team. A heartwarming story to start the holiday season off right from Cousins and the Kings.
