Favors "go to move" and PnR - Zach Lowe


Yesterday in the Favors edition of the downbeat I got into a spirited debate with many of my fellow SLC Dunkers on Favors and his overall lack of offensive ability and his disdain for the phrase "go to move". I got a ton of flack for suggesting that Favors really doesn't have a great offensive game and that he shouldn't be so quick to shut down the idea of developing a couple go to moves to help him improve his offensive game. I find it interesting that the day after I get ripped apart at the mere suggestion that he isn't a very good offensive player (including as the roll man in the PnR), the immortal Zach Lowe of Grantland shares some similar sentiments. You can find his article here. I'm glad I'm not the only one that sees it. Can we face reality and say that Favors has a long way to go on the offensive end and maybe hold him accountable the same way that we held Big Al accountable for his defensive shortcomings? All I want is for Favors to be the best he can be and I find it terribly frustrating when he seems to act like he's got it all together on offense and he doesn't need a "go to move". At least he shouldn't act like a total jerk when people bring up the concept of developing a go to move.
