    Defensively i would rank him as #5, when he get the pt it`ll be obvious for league wide but not just for the Jazz fanz. And i think only Howard, Asik, Ibaka and Chandler more efficient then him right now at the defensive end.
    I would include Noah in that top 5 as well.

    If Favors averaged 30 minutes a game (I personally think that he should be closer to 35 minutes), then he would be close to averaging a double double with 4 blocks.
    If Favors got 36 minutes a game, his stats would be more or less 16, 12, 1, 1, 3, IMHO. He will learn how to pass and score better when he can play with confidence and other good teammates. People often underestimate how playing with good players improves your game. Randy Foye is one of the worst team players I've ever seen and even Tinsley plays more selfishly when he's with the second unit. Favors' offense is improving each game and has shown a variety of offensive skills so far this year. He's right on the cusp of taking his offense to the next level: he's improved his FTs, he's shown a decent jump shot/fade away, he's shown a soft touch and missed out on at east three nice post baskets with offensive fouls or traveling (some debatable), his misses in the paint have been soft off the rim quite often, he's showing more comfort with the basketball in his hands, his points per game and per 36 have gone up every year (6.8, 8.8, 9.6 = last 5; 12.5, 14.9, 16 = last 5).

    Thanks for the English lesson! Can I pay you to teach me English?

    I would think that keeping the word as close to the original passed perfect participle in Latin (defensus) would make more sense, but apparently you have a more informed opinion. Considering we adopted the word from Latin through French (défense), it seems like you could make an argument for "defense" again. However, it might just be that there are dialectical differences in our orthography, and the only reason one asserts "correctness" is to ally oneself with the "correct" club and thus give oneself warm tinglies in the nether region. Hopefully, I haven't been too defencive.
