Derrick Favors is a talented, exciting, young player. He does not get a lot of shine around the league, that's a product of him not getting a lot of playing time. Is it a fundamental problem like Favors not deserving playing time, or is it a structural problem where the Jazz fail to know how much younger guys should be played? I don't know.

So yeah, these are guys who have played more this year than Derrick Favors. Keep this in mind 3 years from now when we get upset that Favors still gets called for cheap fouls because the refs give him no respect because he didn't blow up early like other younger players.
