In response to gman101019's comment:
don't think Fav is a starting Center in the NBA.
He's going to have a long NBA career, but as a backup Center.
Agree to an extent. Hes not a starting center on most teams. But since we have no legit centershe should be starting on this team.
He has proven to be able to finish with BOTH hands. Unlike every other big on this team he can actually roll to the rim effectively on the pick and roll while also being able to pop too. He has even shown the ability to hit the 3 pt shot (even when he misses they are half way down). For the negative, he is at best an avg rebounder and defender. Seems to struggle scoring on post ups , fades too often.
Yes, with the Celts, he's a starter.
But I'm talking about the NBA in general and how he ranks among the NBA's starting Center.
For example, Asik is a starting Center.
Can Fav be better than Asik?
yes, plus he has range
