Reporters and other media types, as well as fans on this site can call Derrick Favors a power forward, and I see him as a good one. Because of his defensive ability, though, especially around the rim, I see him as an even better center. Coupled with Kanter's improving jump shot, don't be surprised if we see more and more of Favors guarding other team's centers. Perhaps they will switch, depending on whether they are on offense of defense. Doesn't matter, I guess, Batman & Robin, D-Fave & the K-man (fill in better nickname) will rule the post often.

I'm anxious to see how Favors and Kanter evolve, I think Kanter will end up being the better offensive player and more reliable scorer but Fav will control the paint and I think he will get better and better on offense. I think Hayward will be the leader and get the team to play like they should. I love the courage the FO is showing to let the vets go and say OK it's time to see how good these young kids can be.
Can't wait to see how this plays out.

I believe Kanters & Favors will complement each other perfectly. By playing each other in practice(under Malone's watchful eye)each one could improve in the areas that they are currently weak in. They also could be interchangable by switching whose the 4/5 according to matchups. They both weren't picked #3 for nothing. It may take a year or so but they will be a force(or @ minimum a chip for perhaps a greater need)...

Very cautious statement about his relationship with Corbin -- "We building on it". Wonder what's up with that. Hope they both can build on it, or it's not a good long term sign.
