As one of the most versatile players in the NBA, DeMarcus Cousins can do a little bit of everything. So with a wet floor delaying tonight’s game in Philadelphia, the superstar big man decided to show off another facet of his game.

His mopping skills.

According to reports on the scene, the moisture on the court was a result of two factors. The first was residual melted ice, left on the arena floor after last night’s NHL game hosted by the Philadelphia Flyers. The second cause? High humidity conditions in the city of brotherly love.

Following a one-hour delay, the game was officially postponed by the NBA. The League announced that the contest would be rescheduled for a yet to be determined date. Meanwhile, Cousins and the Kings continue their east coast road trip with a matchup against the Boston Celtics on Friday.

“I’ve never experienced anything like this,” Cousins said to reporters following the cancellation of the contest. “This is definitely different. This is a first time thing for me.”

As for Cousins’ plans for the rest of the night? He’s in the process of sorting that out.

“I don’t know,” he said with a laugh when asked what he and the Kings plans are the rest of the evening. “I’m out here trying to find something to do now.”
