Derrick Favors Spills the Beans on His Fellow Jazzmen
** Gordon [Hayward] plays video games more than anybody he knows.
** Enes Kanter eats the most. He eats three or four waffles for breakfast and a whole pan of turkey bacon. “He just eats all the food. So the rest of the team doesn’t get no food around him.”
** Paul Millsap is a good dancer. “He don’t tell nobody that, but he can dance.”
** Al Jefferson has a man crush on Lil Wayne. “You guys gotta show him this too. Show him I said that.”
Favors after “revealing” the part about Big Al:
Favors also said that his pre-game meal is two Subway foot-longs (one buffalo chicken, one regular turkey) and a six-inch (whatever he feels like on that day). “Avocado is gross.”
Do yourself a favor and check out this video of Favors’ Junior Jazz tour. Apart from the above, it also has a montage of Favors making an inordinate number of half-court shots, documents his first foray into golf, and just laughing and smiling adorably. Seriously, he is so totes adorbs off the court, I can’t even.
The video closes with this quote from Favors:
If I was one of the younger kids and an NBA player came to do a camp, I would remember it for the rest of my life. Whether it’s just a picture or a handshake or just saying, “Hey.” It makes you grateful and humble. It just keeps you wanting to work harder and keep improving, and it’s a great honor…Hopefully I’ll become an All-Star player, Hall of Fame-type player, [and] they’ll remember this for the rest of their life.
I just totally love him.
