Default Video Proof of Demarcus Cousins being >>>> Derrick Favors

They were both working out for the Sacramento Kings.. Cousins has the Grey shirt on and Favors has the Black shirt on.. Discuss who you think is better, but imo.. Cousins is more ready.

you nailed it.

watching both players casually shoot 12-15ft jumpers is enough for me to say ">>>>" as well.

Thanks for this great video evidence.

Favors is a better shooter it looked like and has more hops.

Interesting. Favors' release is a bit odd.

I watched that yesterday and it changed my mind about Favors. Favors ended up looking decent from there. Didn't think he had that kind of range.

that jumpshot impressed you...I thought it looked really shaky, he wasnt even doing the drills right, he has to hold up his follow through and it seems to take really long for him to get his shot off.

Also scouts are saying that he is out of shape..Favors has also admitted to being out of shape.

cousins was the one that looked out of shape.

he was slow and sluggish, slow to get off his feet, slow on all his movements.

Favors had bounce in his step, quick to get off the ground, looked better IMO

Favors is slower, doesnt mean he is out of shape. Cousins is also like 30 pounds heavier and much stronger.

you think favors is slower? are we watching the same video?

Dont get me wrong, i like cousins, and if it were me i would probably take him over favors just because of his size, and how well he can handle the rock, run the floor. But he def looked a little out of shape in that vid IMO

I have seen him in game dribble coast to coast and finish on the other end running the floor like a guard and i

But Favors seemed to have a little more pep in his step.

This vid doesnt mean much to me though.

I meant Cousins is slower...my bad

I just dont think Favors knows how to play basketball. I also think he may have more mental issues than Cousins as well...I dont know if Favors is a great competitor, he seems like he is gonna be in for a rude awakening in the league.

Amazingly enough it did. Not just the jumpshots, but essentially all of what I saw. I honestly thought he was going to be a complete bust before this, worse than Milicic for example, though he seems to have some decent attributes.

This. He also looked alot quicker in terms of movement and towards the end you could see Demarcus seemingly abit tired (back to basket, turnaround J, his release was low and uncoordinated), and i would think Favors is the better conditioned player.

This video doesn't show shit. You could've replaced them with Bargnani and Dwight and say "Proof Bargs>>>Dwight"

Just another dumb thread from PB
