Deron's better than Melo once he get's into the playoffs. Only lost in the first round once, to the Lakers. Led the Utah Jazz to the 2007 WCF in his second year, and beat Melo's Nuggets in 2010. Lost to the Lakers in '08 and '09. Then he got traded to the Nets, who are awful - although looking up recently.
Don't understand why they traded away that pick though, especially in this draft. In this league, you're either contending, or building to contend. Consistent mediocrity is hell.
