Daily Link: For Favors, It’s About Strength

In a Ben Couch interview with Derrick Favors, a common recurring theme kept coming back to the rookie’s strength and conditioning. Favors seemed pleased with his summer league performance and progress, but knows where he needs to make improvements:

NJNets.com: What did you take away from your week at Summer League in Orlando?

Derrick Favors: That I need to work a little harder, in the post, on all things. Get a little stronger.

I’m obviously pulling for the kid, but I hope given his rawness that fans cut him a little slack in his rookie season.
