Goodbye D-Favs ... again. Respect! 

Post#1 » by zero24gravity » Fri Jul 30, 2021 3:51 pm

Regardless of how you felt about his latest contract and the cost to move him, this guy is a Utah Jazz great, and should be appreciated by the fans.

Awesome locker room guy, from all reports I've ever read. A player who wanted to be in Utah playing for the Jazz. Humble & classy.

8th in games played, 10th all time Jazz scorer, 4th in offensive rebounds, 5th in defensive rebounds, 4th in total rebounds, 7th in blocks, 8th in blocks per game, 4th in FG%, 10th effective FG%, 10th rebound %, 7th defensive winshares, 7th total winshares.

I think people tend to forget how much of a beast he was for many seasons in a Jazz uni, especially 2013 & 2014; 16ppg, 8rpg, 1.5bpg 1.0spg, 52 FG%, during that stretch.

Appreciate you Derrick! Best wishes going forward professionally and personally.

Having to dump Favors twice sucks on all levels.

I guess the Dennis Lisndey player loyalty era just slammed shut. Fav's has been super loyal to the Jazz and they just did him dirty to overpay Conely. Reported at $75/3years, it's not my money but I was wishing Conely would be more in the 20m or less range and we could keep an asset like Fav's. I'm sure the team has data says Conely is worth that much, but deeper playoff runs would help me to trust that data.

Thanks Fav's for all you brought to the Jazz. Humbleness, athletic power, and quiet leadership. Traits we missed the year you were in NO & will miss again after this trade. Wish you the best as your career continues and hope you can come back in some capacity later.

Favs is a nice guy but let's be real when it comes to his impact. The guy underachieved his talent and to be perfectly honest I don't think he has a particularly good work ethic.

Brash but fair, he never really panned when he first got here. He was supposed to be the next big big.
