DeMarcus Cousins vs Derrick Favors: One Guy Is Mad

Cousins is a lot more hyped to go up against Derrick and the Nets than Favors (who might as well have yawned when asked about tonight’s matchup). The Star-Ledger reports: “The Nets’ rookie forward had little to say Thursday about his former AAU and high school rival, DeMarcus Cousins, who he will battle Friday night for the first time as professionals when the Nets play host to Cousins and the Sacramento Kings at the Prudential Center. ‘We’re just two players on different teams, just playing against each other,’ Favors said of his relationship with Cousins, whom he’s known since the eighth grade. The two big men from the South — Favors is from Atlanta, Cousins from Mobile, Ala. — have been linked for years because of the fact both played the same position, and played against each other so often … Earlier this month, in an interview with Yahoo Sports, the 6-11, 270-pound Cousins said he intended to make the teams that passed over him pay for not drafting him. ‘I can’t wait to play them, because I’m going at their necks,’ Cousins told Yahoo’s Marc Spears. ‘Especially the big that got picked before me.’ That, of course, was the 6-10, 246-pound Favors, who Thursday feigned ignorance of what Cousins said about him. He heard from a friend that Cousins said something, but he claimed he didn’t know what, exactly. ‘I don’t look at all that stuff — read (newspapers and magazines), internet, look at the TV — I don’t get into all that,’ he said.”

  • tRay

    DeMarcus is a beast but really?! Get over yourself just play ball man.

  • LeBron de Con

    DMC individually didn’t “make them pay” against the Wolves. Wes Johnson played as well if not better in 19 minutes. DMC ran into Nickolas Pekovic and was left floundering.

    he talks like he was picked in the second round.. but i do appreciate players with a chip on their shoulder.. but his chip should be helping the Kings’ POS record..

    Definitely rooting for Favors on this one. Do your thing, big fella.

    Cousins talks like a veteran but is a rookie. A little dog with a big bark. Favors is a true professional. It is not hard to chose a side in this; Favors all day.

  • Derek

    Cousins will smash the Nets

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Is Favors starting though? He plays behind Troy Murphy and Brook Lopez, correct?

    Co-sign TADOne.

    Nets did mess up. Cuz and brook would have been best frontcourt for the next decade plus. But favors should be nice too.

    On my way to the ROCK with my fresh new Favors jersey.
    This will be the matchup for which team end last in the next power rankings.
    I’m bluffing. I don’t have a Favors jersey. I’m sure he’ll be delt as soon as a max player asks for a trade.
    Carmelo what?

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    Bottom line, I’d take Cousins over Favors in a heartbeat. And not to digress, but Denver needs to stop trying to trade Melo to the Nets. It’s a waste of everyones time. Just play the season out, and let Melo walk for nothing to the Knicks. It’s that simple. If I was Melo’s agent, I’d tell Denver to take that extension (sans a trade to the Knicks of course) and stuff it up Stanley Kroenke’s arse so he can save some luxury tax. Imagine if the Timberwolves treated KG like this, and forced him to sign an extension to they could trade him to wherever they wanted to? rofl

    Earlier this month, in an interview with Yahoo Sports, the 6-11, 270-pound Cousins said he intended to make the teams that passed over him pay for not drafting him. ‘I can’t wait to play them, because I’m going at their necks,’ Cousins told Yahoo’s Marc Spears. ‘Especially the big that got picked before me.’

    DMC is too funny.

    DMC cracks me up.

    Nobody can spell Russ’ last name right. It doesn’t make phonetical sense. I don’t know if phonetical is a word.

  • KB8toSG8

    Damn. Cousins might be the better player (notice might) Favors was the better fit at NJ. I hope Favors gives him a poster that he’ll never forget.
