I watched the game last night & thought Hump gave us plenty of hustle as always, but Favors plays with that same energy plus raw talent. Favors seems to do something every game that Hump can't do while Hump just reminds me of a young Najera (minus the defensive effort). Anyway, I was looking at the box score from last night & I couldn't help but notice the +/- difference between the two.
The first thing I thought was wow! The second thing I thought was it's just 1 game & Hump has clearly been playing his butt off this year. He definitely makes the Nets better...I think. Anyway I don't have all day(at work) so I said let me look at the last 5 games in which they both played.(Favors didn't play against Dallas). Well here's your total combined +/- for the last 5 games in which they both played:
Favors: -4 (21 mins per game)
Hump: -55 (23 mins per game)
I do have a little common sense & realize there are plenty of other factors that go into a stat like this, but when the difference is THAT far apart I just think it means something. Something like "more Favors & less Hump please!"
