More than a few people have compared Derrick Favors and Dwight Howard.
The two defensive-minded big men have similar builds to go with incredible athletic abilities.
On Friday, Favors himself said Howard was one of the guys in the league he tried to imitate.
Well, sort of.
"Guys like Tyson Chandler," Favors replied when asked about other players' styles. "How Dwight was in Orlando. … They come in, contest the shot, block the shot, get a rebound, start a fast break and beat [their] man down the court, get a dunk. Those are the types of things those guys do and I watch them and just try to learn from them."
So that was Dwight in Orlando, but not Dwight in L.A., right?
"Not Dwight in L.A.," Favors said. "Dwight in Orlando was a monster. Hope he get back to that."
