Derrick Favors shows off his post game

Jazz big man Derrick Favors reveals the post game he's developed this summer.

When people talk about possible Most Improved Player candidates for 2013-14, Utah Jazz big man Derrick Favors often kicks off the list. A supreme athlete who's now had a few years to develop at the league's highest level, Favors seems ripe for a huge season in the eyes of many analysts.

On Wednesday, Favors joined Coach Nick of BBall Breakdown to display his patented move, the up and under. Describing his mental process and footwork, Favors shows us how he goes through one of the most devastating moves in his offensive arsenal. Despite owning a truly electrifying set of physical traits, misdirection and deception allow him to gain position.

If Favors can take that next step this fall, particularly on the offensive end, his impact on the Jazz could be huge. With Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap playing elsewhere, there should practically be an unlimited number of opportunities for Favors to assert himself as Utah's new star player.
