1 day before Purple Day – a day for epilepsy awareness – DeMarcus Cousins dropped 29 & 11 on the Suns while wearing shoes with the words “#TeamAria” and “End Epilepsy” on them. The shoes, along with other items donated by Boogie, will be sold in a silent auction for the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California.

DeMarcus said, “A close friend of mine’s daughter was diagnosed with Epilepsy and battled seizures her first 2 years so this cause hits close to home. She ended up having brain surgery and has been seizure-free since. It really is an incredible story. Anything I can do to help promote Epilepsy awareness, I am with it. Hopefully with my so-called celebrity, I can help open more people’s eyes to Epilepsy disorders.”
