    I don't think we should define Favors as either as a C or a PF, he can be good at playing both.

    'Defense' is not considered a correctly-spelled english word according to my macbook. So it always autocorrects it to either defence or defines. Ugh.

    Little known fact: Dalmong actually coined the term: "you Biffed the link."

    You've Biffed full circle, Dal.

    Just curious. Are you trolling or do you really think there's a question on this?

    Derrick Favors is a top 5 bigman defender in the league! He has really gained confidence in his defensive ability, and he has been controlling games on the defensive end the last two in particular.

    At 21.3 mins./game, he has 2.3 blocks, .7 steals, and 7.7 rebounds. That works out to be 3.9, 1.2, and 12.6 /36. /48, he is top six on blocks (5.15), and on rebounds, top 7 (16.75). But he should actually be higher than this because some of the stats are skewed with lower-minute players. His speed and agility allow him to play superb P&R D. He needs to learn how to stay closer to stretch 4's, but other than that he is top-notch. He needs time, and his offense is getting better and better. He has shown a soft touch on quite a few of his misses lately.

    Tremendous defender. Top 5. Very average offensive game, but showing signs. Superb garbage man on offense.

    I really like to watch Favors play. Blocks have always been my favorite play in basketball and he brings that **** in spades.

    Offensively, Favors is up to 14 pts/36 and 17.8/36 over the last 4 on 48% shooting.
