I admit, going into the draft, I wasn't high on Favors. I was hoping we would get Cousins thinking he had more trade value. And even today I think that Denver would have pulled the trigger preseason on a trade for Melo if they got Cousins in return.
But that's all in the past now, and looking at the headaches that Cousins is putting the Kings through, I am grateful as a Nets fan not to see that happening again with my team. Derrick Coleman was tough enough to endure with so much promise, but such a headcase.
