The Number Two Pick: One Week To Go

The summer of anticipation continues to unfold. We're left with one week before the Sixers will make their decision. Have I changed my mind? Check after the jump, leave your thoughts in the comments and vote in the poll.

In a word, No. I haven't changed my mind. Favors is still my guy for all the reasons I've stated before. If you need me to boil it down for you, I think he's going to be a defensive force in the middle for the next decade and I think his offensive game will evolve much more quickly than most, simply because he'll be playing with Jrue and Andre Iguodala. The offensive production will be there early from easy opportunities, and I have the confidence in the coaching staff and Favors' work ethic to believe he'll develop the requisite moves down low to eventually demand a double and produce on his own. He's got the size and athleticism to be a superstar big, and the Sixers provide a very good opportunity to help him reach that potential.

If you're a Turner guy, convince me I'm wrong. Don't forget to vote in the poll.
