It has been said that because Favors seems to be more of a center there wont be
to great of a market for him. Jazz should sign him to a good front loaded
contract and keep him. They sure wont find much better free agent than him.
Favors is just such a classy guy. He is my favorite Jazz man. I hope he stays
for another ten years.
I don't believe I've ever heard Favors hint of wanting to leave, I
think Utah has been a great fit for him from the beginning. I know the Miller
family thinks the world of him. I guess differences in contract wants may
ultimately determine if he stays but I agree, anyone paying attention (with a
good head on their shoulders) must like what's happening with the JAZZ. I
have to eat a little crow since I could not see Favors and Gobert working
together on the offensive end of the floor but they've figured it out.
I'm glad, too, I've always liked Favors for the type of player-person
he his. It seems the JAZZ are now stock-full of the same type
personalities/attitudes and it's a rare and beautiful thing.
It has taken a while to get Favors to this level of play, especially with the
"injuries". Having him in a contract year has added urgency and purpose
to his game, With all this, winning is a whole lot more fun than anything else,
and where the Jazz are playing at an elite level, with all the parts clicking
together like they are, it would be hard for Favors to want to leave. All NBA
players want a championship, and if this group stays together, it could happen
real soon! It wouldn't surprise me if some of the more elite players in
the league don't start looking to come play for the Jazz. With the Jazz
playing unselfishly, and with the rise of Mitchel, and the improved play of
Rubio, (along with some of the other players), this may be a special team for
years to come.
