Nellie was getting all emotional the second half of the season and was all about trying to help the young guys. He's said many times that he wished he handled the Webber thing differently and I think he would try to make amends, in his own way, if he drafted another potential star big.
Nah, I'm with Bada here. If we get Cousins and keep Nellie, it's gonna be a DISASTER. I don't trust Nellie helping a young big man develop in any way (other than developing mental problems, that is). Not considering his history. I'm beyond that after decades of Nellie in the league.
I totally frickin' agree. Nelson ain't about to start changing his stripes. He is who he is, and a big man who doesn't play like Nelson wants him to play is a big man sitting on the bench. Cousins is a potential train wreck for this team.
