Favors is averaging 2.2 blocks and 1.1 steals per game in 24.5 minutes per game. This will change positively or negatively and it is early in the season. That sounds ok, but of these three players: Duncan, Malone, and Garnett, this happened.
Malone: never did this in his entire career.
Duncan: is doing it this year, but has never done it otherwise.
Garnett: did it more or less twice in his career, both times with nearly 40 minutes per game.
On the other hand, Ben Wallace did it 6 times, but once again, this was with upwards of 36 minutes per game. Favors' rebounds at similar rates to all of these players as well. Just a reminder of how good Favors is on defense. His combination of size and speed does not come around that often and are possibly even more unique than we think.
Per 36, Favors is 3.2 blocks and 1.6 steals.
