In response to Fierce34's comment:
Once Fav plays good defense, he becomes better than Asik.
But that remains to be seen.
I think everybody here knows Fav has not played a single regular season game.
Pressey will be a good backup PG for a long time.
But he's never going to be a starting PG in the NBA.
Babb will get cut.
I hope you'll be man enough to give me credit for telling you Babb is now worth keeping.
I have yet to see Fav not play decent defense, he has been very good positional defender and team defender, Coach Stevens has pointed him out as being the voice of the defense calling stuff out for his teammates and putting them in position. The team is young, new to each other and not particularly great right now, Fav is not a leaper or very explosive but he puts his body in between himself and the basket. When I look at the Celtics I see a team similar to the Spurs, they play team defense to overcome any deficiencies in athleticism, Fav is cut in that mold.
Pressey will be the back up point guard on this team because we have an all star who will play ahead of him in Rondo, one day he could be the starting point guard for a team if he continues to learn and grow, stop trying to sound so sure of yourself when you only have opinion to back yourself up.
Babb might very well be cut or sent down to the D League, he is a project player, but if he learns the intricacies on the NBA he could be a very good to great player one day, he could also make the opening day roster. I don't claim to be the expert that you are.
