Favors is comfortable playing hard, blocking, getting boards.

If Favors played 35 minutes a game there is no doubt he would be top 5 in rebounds and average a double double....and be top 5 in blocks. That is a SOLID power forward.

There's plenty of doubt. He's had his chances starting with mixed results. He gets into foul trouble for starters. Until he can stay on the court for 35 minutes a night and produce against the top players in the league on a nightly basis nothing is a given. Maybe his body won't hold up to those kind of minutes either? He's hurt now for the first time with his increased PT.

Offensively, Favors isn't a #1 option but his defense is good enough to make him a centerpiece of a team.

I say Kanter 1a and Favors 1b after this season.

Jefferson and/or Millsap needs to go. Not that they're bad or anything but we've already seen their max potential and it's only borderline playoff/1st Round.

Honestly, Favors defense have been better than Jefferson and Millsap since last year so in way he already "deserve" a starting gig.
