Who would you take? Personally I feel Favors is much more physically gifted with more potential and is just overall a better player.
Any reason why? Cousins for some reason is higher on the 2010 mock.
Watching Cousins play last night in the Hoop Summit Game did it for me. Seemed lazy but that might just be me. Favors is a real athletic kid with a huge upside I believe. So thats why I take Favors.
yea Favors anyday
favors is in the discussion as #1 still and i think cousins is out of the conversation now...
i think cousins is higher ranked on the draft board cos he is somewhere around 6'10 and favors is 6'9... at least that's what it says
Cousins = garbage last night
Cousins is a Joke, He's just too slow for his own good even at the college level. Favors athletic ability and skill set throw him far ahead of cousins.
Ive seen cousins play many times including a game on espn against favors and even though favors might fill up the stat sheet, cousins is in many peoples opinion the most skilled big man in the country and i think he has more potential than favors as well.
favors. cousns has showed me nuthin. just a big body
favors because he goes hard
&& cousins is a bigger tracy mcgrady meaning he pouts & doesn't try hard

I bet you're loving this Quincey, lol
well since neither has played in the nba yet and favors is considered more of a long term prospect, i dont think we can come close to answering this yet.
And since stanfordhoops didn't even post on this....It's easy to have an opinion AFTER everything has happened
As far as loving this @joewolf..I'm not sure how long you have been on here but i picked favors to have a better season in college then cousins. i wasnt a big fan of either but i thought cousins was wayy overrated
Anyone who watched College basketball last year will say Cousins is the better player right now by alot by Favors has alot more potential to be great
The only potential I see on Favors is on the defensive side, I can't imagine him ever averaging over 20PPG,perhaps his highest offensive ceiling is 17PPG, Cousins on the other hand is an offensive force and with motivation and conditioning can be a 20PPG/10RPG guy. So its really a choice, do you want a defensive forward, or a offensive center/pf.
Over the stretch of their careers i would think that Cousins has the size and skill set to become the better overall player. Thats if he stays in shape and keep a level head. I think Cousins is similar to Derrick Coleman.
tell me this..what has favors shown to lead you to think he has the potential to be great? please dont say because he can jump because chris wilcox could jump as well and he isnt great. amare can jump but he isnt great..very good but not great so what has favors done to make you think he has the potential to be "great"
