    Guys it has only been 1 game! And the best part of his game is defensively which the Jazz sorely need, especially down low. I think Favors should be starting next too Jefferson. I love Millsap but the bottom line that Millsap is better coming off the bench and he always add that spark and a go too guy for the second unit. But if you look at Favors when it really mattered IE the playoffs he was the best Jazz guy on the court, that's where you judge him not 1 game into preseason. Besides I think he's a good compliment to Jefferson, remember he's the go too guy right now so you want someone to play the better offensive guy to let Jefferson relax a little bit. Then you have a go too guy for the second unit with Millsap. Both Kanter and Favors are our future guys there the ones who have a shot at giving us a title. The more experience we can give them now the faster something like that will happen.

    Still pre-season early. When Favors got the ball down low he was double and triple teamed. He will be fine. Glad to see Kanter do well. This kid can rebound the ball with the best..

    Between Kanter and Favors,it appears that Kanter had the better off season so far. His training with Kiki Vandy seems to be paying off. During the off season Favors reported that he planned to work out with Karl Malone. Doesn't appear that that happened. It looks as though Favors needs some serious big man coaching to improve his offense. Go Jazz!
