Derrick Favors: “I still love Utah”

New, comments

Before and after a pregame matchup with his old team, Derrick Favors had nothing but good things to say about the Utah Jazz.

Consider this a mini-Derrick Favors appreciation post.

Jazz fans knew that it was going to be strange and difficult seeing Derrick Favors in a different jersey, and we got the first taste of that last night. Before the game, Favors caught up with Jazz reporters and answered some questions about his feelings towards the Utah Jazz. Warning: get some tissues.

Reading these words from Derrick Favors, it’s hard not to fall in love with him all over again. Just like always, Derrick is the best person ever. This was just two days after he showed off his new D.O.N. Issue #1’s that Donovan Mitchell had provided for him.

After the game last night, Favors caught up with old homies in Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles, and these hugs are everything.

Favors talked postgame with Kristen Kenney and opened up about how strange it was playing against his old team. He also talked about Donovan’s shoes, missing Joe Ingles the most, and how much he’s looking forward to coming back to SLC in November.

We can’t wait either, Faves.
