Able to put the ball on the floor for a dribble or two and get to the rim
Loaded with upside
Needs to become more assertive
Still raw on the offensive end
Footwork in the post
Too easily gets into foul trouble
Summary: It is all about potential with Favors. He has been effective at Georgia Tech because his size and strength allows him to overpower opponents in the paint resulting in a lot of easy buckets. His overall game is still far from polished and needs a lot of work, but he has shown flashes of just how bright his future could be. He likely won't slip out of the top five of the 2010 NBA Draft this summer.
Player Comparison: Al Jefferson. Like Jefferson was early in his career, Favors has the ability to overpower opponents in the paint with his great strength and physicality. It took a couple years for Jefferson to reach his potential in the league, and that will likely be the case for Favors.
Rockies and Diamondbacks fail yesterday, at least the Astros and Nats came through. For today: Closing two pars with Red Sox-178 in one and Nats -+169 in the other. In another ongoing par going in the second tier spot of a four team par will be the Astros -205. Start up par with the Dodgers -163, (Kershaw), two open. Still thinking about the Yankees in a start up. GLTA today.
@Bear Down He didn't do a horrible job even if Mitch doesn't pan out, I do believe Shaheen is going to be a monster TE for the Bears for quite a while. However Adams wouldve raised the level of the defense but Demps is a decent player and a veteran which might be just what this young secondary needs.
