    I love it.

    Well unless he demanded a trade maybe, and they're trying to keep the problems off of the floor.

    I can't picture Burks having demanded a trade two games into his second season.

    Unless they had told him that his role was going to be less than he thought it was going to be prior to the season starting.
    You could tell from his pre-season interviews that he fully expected to start.

    I wonder how long it will take for "Free Alec Burks" chants to begin at ESA?

    It's only a matter of time before Alec Burks becomes Raja Bell 2.0

    Good thing the Jazz used a lottery pick on this guy to bench him in favor of a guy who they signed for 2 million for one year.
    Life is like watching Fast and the Furious 6. It's not easy, most of the time it's just dumb and pointless, everything is fake, there is a lot of noise, but if you close your eyes and picture yourself in an open field or a quiet forest, you can maybe make it to the end without killing yourself.

    I'll be taking a "FREE ALEC BURKS" sign to the Lakers game. Look for me on tv.

    This is truly insanity right here. How this kid gets no burn is truly one of the more questionable coaching decisions in Jazz franchise hx.

    For a lottery pick to have played pretty well in limited opportunities his rookie season, to have played very well in summer league and very well in pre-season, to not even be a part of the rotation, even for 5-10 minutes, has to be nearly unprecedented in the NBA. Even Jerry Sloan, who was notorious for putting young players on the bench, found a way to get his second year players some minutes. Sloan's last lottery pick wing player, Brewer, the 14th pick in the draft, averaged 27 mpg his second season in the league. And that was on a 54 win team.

    I don't mind Foye I think he should start. Bring Burks off the bench at 2 and Hayward off the bench at 3. I like Carrol but he should play as a pace setter when the Jazz are in a lol.

    Being a deep team is overrated.
