    Nah ... He's gonna have a good career as a backup to somebody ... whether here or elsewhere.

    Fav will be a nice compliment to Asik when Asik is the C's starting center and he may even develop into a starter in a few years once he's working alongside Asik.

    But wozzy will tell you he's already a starting Center in the NBA and he's already better than Omer Asik!

    No, because I keep telling you let's wait until he plays more games.

    By December we'll know if Fav is for real or not.

    What's stupid is you already declaring Fav a starting NBA Center and he's already better than Asik when Fav has yet to play a single regular season game. 

    Just look at what Mployee and Melwitt have to say about Fav, they both claim that Fav is just a backup Center.

    So did you, you're just doing a better job of backtracking, fine work...

    not only is Fav a starting caliber center, but he is arguably the best player on the C's right now.

    Re: Faverani

    The guy is not a rookie, he had 18 rebounds last night and we had no replacement for him.  He is the starter on the Boston Celtics, so he is already a starter in the NBA.  The guy might average a double double this year or close to it.  He can shoot , he positions himself very well on defense, he can rebound , pass, and shoot.  What do you want from a first year in the NBA.  He is the steal of the year because he gives us a anchor.  Our problem is tooooo many power forwards and 2's not Faverani.

    Everything you say is true except we don't know that he can play center for 25 mins a game for a full NBA season. That's why I project him as an excellent backup. I'm not convinced yet that the Indestructible Man is made of metal until his metal is tested much longer than a few weeks. I'm very happy that he's a Celtic but unwilling to proclaim him as our starting center for the future.

    LMFAO...you didn't really believe that "Hombre indestructable" jive did you?..I mean, I guess for a guy from Brazil who played in Europe he's tough, but look at that upper body dude?..He's not punching anyone out any time soon...he's fine for what he is...a pick and popper from the outside, opportunistic down low, good shot blocker, so-so rebounder..

    The great lottery pick they get from being terribly terrible this year , if they can't land a true top ,five talent, should go for a legit center...unless and until they get one, they go NOWHERE...Fav is NOT a legit starting NBA Center

     


    Neither was Tony Battie, and we got all the way to the ECF with him as our starting C for years. Some might even say Perk wasn't "starter" material. You know where that went. Did they take us nowwhere? They weren't "the man" on those teams, just as Fav won't be "the man" on this team. You don't need to be "the man" to be "a legit starting NBA center" is my point. So far, Fav has shown to be much more skilled then those guys. He just lacks the NBA experience still.

     

    Throughout preseason and these past two games, he's proven to me that he's more productive then either Battie or Perkins.

    Reminds me of when Damon Stoudamire said the Spurs would never win a championship with Avery Johnson in their starting line-up.

    Have we not learned that even with all signs pointing to reason, it's still impossible to predict?

    Look no further then the current MLB champs. Whodah thunk it?

    Here's an article from the Globe via celticsblog.com.

    http://www.celticsblog.com/2013/11/2/5059438/was-brad-stevens-out-coached-by-the-bucks

    The Bucks found a liability. They picked on rookie Vitor Faverani, using experienced Zaza Pachulia to score at will, and Stevens made no adjustments to force the Bucks to shoot from the perimeter.

    [/QUOTE]

    Come on, man! Never get your news second-hand. That's like letting someone else chew your steak for you.

    This quote is so egregiously wrong, it literally, could not be farther from the truth.

    Washburn must have looked at the box score and presumed that Pachulia had done his damage against Faverani. But he watched the game, too, right? Didn't he? If you actually watched the game,you, too,had to see that what he wrote was just totally wrong. And a check of the play-by-play would validate your eye-ball test.

    And that's exactly the case.

    The fact of the matter is that Pachulia scored a total of 4 points when Faverani was on the floor. On Pachulia's first basket, Faverani had just blocked his shot twice, recovered the second one but made a careless outlet. It was tipped to Henson who attacked the basket. Faverani again altered that shot, but Pachulia, unguarded by any retreating Celtics, tipped in the miss. 

     

    Pachulia's second and last basket "picking on" Faverani came at the 7:00 minute mark in the 4Q when Wolters completely beat Bradley for a sure layup and Faverani covered for him leaving Wolters to dump off for the Pachulia lay-in. 

     

    And that was it. The entire extent of Pachulia "picking on" Faverani, of Pachulia "scoring at will," was a tip-in hoop on a Henson altered shot after Za Za had already been stuffed twice by Faverani, and one hoop on a dump down when Faverani left him to pick up Wolters, Bradley's man.

     

    The data indicate that Pachulia, in fact, never scored at all when defended by Faverani. The data indicate that, in fact, Faverani destroyed the Bucks bigs.

     

    Oh, and Pachulia's other sixteen points? I'd ask Sullinger. He's the guy who played a genuinely terrible game, and, yeah, was "picked on."

    No but you constantly rely on what sports writers or blogs post to defend your position and give them more credibility than they deserve. If you can't defend what you see or think in your own words then don't act so arrogant when you need to base it on somebody else's pontification.
