There are things everyone should know about Derrick Favors, the player — more than any other — seen as the key to the Jazz's promising future. He's been here a year, but it seems nobody knows anything about the young cornerstone, other than that he's immensely talented and he doesn't get enough time on the floor. Well … here are 10 more things: 1. He badly wants the extra minutes he's not getting. This was particularly frustrating for him at the beginning of the season, after he pronounced that he could be a 20-10 guy — if he got the time. But rarely have those major minutes been given him by Tyrone Corbin. The second-year forward is averaging 21 minutes a game, enough for 8.7 points and 6.5 rebounds. In eight April games, he's gotten 25 minutes, scoring 9.6 points and hauling 9.4 boards. The ceiling is much higher than that.
