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
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.
