OK so first our very own Derrick Favors was the very first bigmen chosen in the 2010 draft. Third overall by the nets. We know the rest of the story. So i got to thinking why was Derrick favors pick ahead of Kanas stud Demarcus Cousins and Georgetown standout Greg Monroe. As of right now they both ore avergaing more points and rebound than Favors. But thats basiclybecasue they were drafted into different situation. We know the logjam issue(notice I didnt say problem) that we have. So i thought about what seperates Favors from the rest... I believe that Cousins and Monroe have a more polish offensive then Favors. But their defensive skills are very underdeveloped. Derrick Favors is different from those two because while his offensive skills are still developing his defensive skills a very good. In fact I believe that derrick favors was drafted before them is because his defensive instincts are already on a elite level! I can envsion Derrick favors following in path similar to Dwight Howards. Become one of those few Bigmen that really scares the sh*t out of other teams......Thoughts
