It's funny, Faried has turned out to be what this team always wanted out of Nene. He's such a dominating physical presence that plays with intensity and energy. He's my favorite player in the whole league, I just love watching him play.
I think the most remarkable thing is that the Nuggets have managed to draft so incredibly well. They traded into a draft they didn't have any picks in to get Lawson. Faried would be a top-5 pick if they could do it over for sure.
Combined with the amazing deal they got out of New York, it's just remarkable. I thought this team would be awful for several years after Anthony, I couldn't have been more wrong.
