Say hello to the next Derrick Coleman - DeMarcus Cousins!
DC was a beast here in Jersey, but his alcoholism, weight issues & terrible work ethic soured the Net fan base. At the end of the day, we were probably more fond of the solid and rugged PJ Brown, a defensive stud and serviceable offensive big man who was a model citizen off the court (J Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award in '97). I always think of Derrick Coleman & PJ Brown when people discuss Cousins & Favors. Of course, Favors has more potential than my man PJ, but you get the jist of my analogy (I hope!)
He may be an extremely talented big man, but I'm glad he isn't here. The last thing that a young, impressionable rebuilding team needs is a Cousins-type player - give me the humble, hardworking Derrick Favors any day! We should be thankful that we have a team with level-headed guys who don't cause a scene on or off the court.
LET'S GO NETS!
