In response to Mployee8's comment:
Hey FIERCY .... Lookey here, your boy Fosberg agrees with Wozzy ... He thinks Fav is a keeper despite his poor grade and once the trade deadline is over Fav will get plenty of minutes to improve his game .... Hahaha, could FIERCY be WRONG AGAIN????? HAHAHA!!!!
ON THE BUS
These players appear to be part of Boston's long-term future given their performance, age and contract status:
Vitor Faverani: His 12-point, 18-rebound, 6-block effort in Boston's home opener seems another lifetime ago. Faverani started fast and came screaming back to earth. Boston's crowded frontcourt and his own inconsistent defense have limited his playing time. The deadline could open up a greater opportunity for the 25-year-old Brazilian big man, who might just need more minutes to find his way again. The Celtics have him under their control at low money ($2.1 million next season) moving forward. [First-half grade: C-]
FIERCY couldn't be more wrong than anybody on the BDC Boards the last ten years ... This story blows out his Oly is Dirk, Sully & Oly will not be traded (C's for many yrs to come???) and Tankapalooza player dump in favor of a team full of draftees.
Like I said ... Always bet against FIERCY predictions ... Money in the Bank!!!
[/QUOTE] You forgot to highlight this part "Boston's crowded frontcourt and his own inconsistent defense have limited his playing time. " which is what Fierce has been saying. Fav needs to play defense or he won't be a full time NBA player. so far not even on a tanking team headed for the lottery.
I've always agreed with him on that as well as the fact that Fav is more suited in a back-up role than a starter. Thing is, he's been roasting wozzy over wozzy's comment about the possibility that Ainge has been "hiding" Fav on the bench to avoid having other teams take an interest in him.
That may or may not be the case but if indeed the C's intend to keep Fav off the tradeable list then what wozzy was arguing has more credence today. The C's were either keeping him on ice or just didn't have the minutes available for Hump, Bass, Sully, Oly and Fav. Sure, Oly & Sully are more important as far as development goes than Fav. And Bass & Hump needed to be showcased if we're gonna get something for them in trades, but since they weren't interested in their win-loss record (the more losses they get/got the better their chances in the lottery) then not finding minutes for Fav's development raises questions.
Why couldn't he be sent to D-League? Is he so bad that it would be embarrassing to the team and/or the player causing him a setback in his intro to the NBA or even his self confidence? I don't know but any way you cut it, if Forsberg is right then wozzy has something to crow about.
