Love is overrated. It's not like his numbers are low at his fault, he's playing behind Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson. Once Millsap is traded, he'll start and be putting up great numbers. He's already a much better defender than Love is, though that's not saying much.
Kevin Love is going to get even better in a few years as well. he's a PF that can shoot, rebound, pass, etc the only thing he needs work on is his defense. the guy breaks his hand during the offseason, comes back early and is getting almost 14 rebounds a game. When I watch Derrick Favors play I sometimes think this guy is not even on the floor. Even when Millsap and possibly Al Jefferson leave I still think Favors is going to be decent but no star. It's going to be Gordon Hayward's team after the big men get traded.
Jamison is out of the rotation due to the fact the's garbage at defense and has been shooting awful. Putting him at the three is about the worst thing you can do as the can guy is a power forward and already has troubles guarding big man, he can't do shit at the three as people just drive past him with ease.
Favors will be better than Love in a few years. Hell, Favors could be one of the best bigs right now if Jazz weren't so damn slow with trading Millsap, the guy is obviously talented and good defender.
I know his defense is very frustrating to watch. Putting him at the 3 is not the worse thing you can do, were talking about him playing for the 2nd unit. It's not like he is going to guard Lebron James or Durant, he won't get blown by every single possession. The guy is talented even though he's old the guy can still make an impact. If Lakers are not going to use this guy, trade him and try to get a SF/PF that can help this team. It's a waste to let him sit on the bench, I would say go after Ariza.
Ariza for Duhon, Jamison, Clark, and Ebanks. I would say this is a great deal, Lakers get rid of 3 players that see almost no minutes and Duhon for Ariza. Lakers get a little younger, and in a way better.
Favors is talented, but I think Love will be alot better in a few more years. The guy hasnt even reached his top level and is putting up monster numbers. I dont think Favors is going to be that great, but we will see how things turn out when he gets his minutes. Every nba player is talented but not every player can show it on the floor consistantly.
