Dude we played like 3-4 conference games....slow down.
i didnt say this is what will be there stats for the whole conference season. just out up what they are doing so far. dont look too far into it
You post the numbers like were a month in. If you wanna be fair put thier opponents in as well.
I see this as just another slap in Favors face because you think he's raw. If you don't think he deserved to be highly rated...don't compare him to players you believe are highly rated.
I know you like Avery Bradley and dislike Favors....that's the only reason why you posted this,
dislike favors?..i dont even know him. i just put things how they are. its pretty obvious that hes raw. its obvious that you are biased towards him because you ignore the facts. how many peopel have watched him and say hes raw?. and what does it matter who they play against once conference play starts?..all those teams are better then the out of conference teams most of these guys play. i dint compare him to these guys these are the freshmen who get talked about the most so thats who i put. when are you gonna accept that fact thats hes raw and is just potential right now?..the announcers say hes raw. fans say hes raw.. so i guess all of us hate him huh?
wow, a lot of hostility for a post that just stated the last names of players and a couple stats. I don't think anyone who knows anything about basketball was fooled into thinking any team has played a lot of conference games and that just because a guy like Favors isn't averaging a lot that he doesn't have all the potential in the world...cool down there Glide.
you don't see all the post he makes complaining about Derrick Favors.
If you dont see him as a elite talent, don't compare him to people u believe are elite talents.
exactly..ive said many time that he has potential but he is raw right now which is obviously true. i think some peopel are sensitive because hes not dominating like they thought he would be and there such great fans that no matter what the player does they will still not agree with whats facts. and 9 times out of 10 if the player has one great or very good game they will say "see i told you this guy was dominate he just needs his teammates to do this or someone to do that". sorry but i call it like i see it. when players for the lakers play bad i call them out. i used to call out cousins all the time for doing well against cupcakes and then not doing much against good teams. hes stepped it up plus he has some nice post moves. favors right now is the least skilled out of the talked about freshmen. he does what he does off of his god given talent (his height length long arms and jumping ability) he desont have any post moves and has to be given the ball under the basket to be effective. its not hating its just obvious observation from watching 90percent of his games
his potential is what gets him compared not what hes doing right now. people talked about bynum when he wasnt doing much because of what he could potentially do. same with people who talk about deandre jordan and jerryd bayless. if you gonna get on people for talking bad about someone then get on people talking good about a player as well because its the same thing. dont just be biased
I'm not being biased
I already made my opinion. Don't compare him to others who you like. If you think he's raw...why not compare him to other raw players?
I guess I just don't see your connection Glide, I guess I just don't get offended when people question Derek Favors' ability to immediately contribute in the NBA. I don't think that makes anyone a hater, just someone who knows that just because someone is 6'10'' and can jump out of the gym isn't going to waltz into the NBA and win ROY. He has a ton of potential, but I don't think comparing him to Cousins, Wall, Lance, and Bradley makes for a smear campaign.
huh?..that makes no sense. im comparing him to his peers..i think that makes alot better sense then comparing him to other high ranked raw freshmen. and you and other peopel compare college players to nba players and hs players to college and nba players. that makes alot less sense then comparing college players to other college players dont you think. plus the fact i cant think of any other fresmen out there who were ranked high who have shown to be as raw
I'm not saying i disagree with calling him raw- I agree.
My issue is this: You make post about his 1st games in NCAA and then you decide he's a raw player. Now that you believe he's a raw player- why would you even compare him to players who are actually doing well. If you know his numbers are not that great, why even post them?
Why post them and not even mention these players opponents in conference play? Or explain why these guys are averaging this numbers? Favors is in a different situation then most of these players and the closest he's too is DeMarcus Cousins....
When Avery Bradley was "struggling" he was not mention by QH. Now he's putting up points against Colorado and Iowa State...he's worth mentioning and being liked by QH?
