KENNETH FARIED (HOU)
PF • 6’8, 228 lbs; 9th year, Morehead State
NBA ROLE: ACTIVE FOUR
The ‘Manimal’: Kenneth Faried; at his best, Faried’s good for relentless rebounding, flash scoring & finishing (on the break or via roll catch) – out-hustles and muscles guys; when it’s a good night, Faried dictates flow and stays active but when it’s a bad night, there’s defensive lapses aplenty, as well as misplaced focus on offense (like settling for jumpers); largely plagued by inconsistency, prone to disappear for long stretches – has to bring ‘A’ game at all times; works well in the right system – (energetic) role player for Mike D’Antoni?
