    ...I really hope Burks isn't packaged into a trade along with Jefferson or Millsap, I'm high on him.

    Interesting how I'm the moron, when you spelled "moran" incorrectly.

    I said this seemed like what was going to happen early in the thread.
    I hope it doesn't happen though..... because the Jazz will likely regret it just like they regretted giving Mo Williams away, only to get him back when he's on the back end of his career.

    You are missing the point.... the point was that all portland had to go off of was college, summer league, and pre-season.... seattle jazzfan was just saying that burks played about as well as lillard in the same game situations, but portland decided to give thier guy major minutes and the jazz did not.

    I wonder when Burks gets a chance with the second unit. We need some more scoring punch off the bench.

    It's all we have with Burks for this year. It's all Portland had with which to judge Lillard before deciding to give him big minutes when it does matter. Like you say pre season and summer are meaningless - that's why so many are clamoring for Corbin to give him time now - when it does matter.

    Once again, Portland has NOBODY to challenge Lillard. Utah has a few guys who can play, Foye, Hayward, Carroll (I know a lot of you hate him but he is a pretty good defensive player), Burks has to beat someone out not just be given time based off what might be.

    Ok, you made your point.
    So why doesn't Ty give Burks 10 minutes a game to try and beat someone out?
    Or should we just wait for garbage time that never happens?

    So this makes sense to you:

    Foye: 73:48
    Tinsley: 44:14
    Carroll: 36:46
    Burks: 2:16

    ?





    Seriously?

I am confident there is a good reason that he isnt playing right now.
    I am just feeling better knowing that kennykyle is confident.
    That is enough for me to relax a bit.

    I agree I would like to see Burks get some play, all I'm saying is its not cut and dry that Burks needs to be playing over Foye and Carrol. I really like Burks and I would prefer it if he played but Im not calling for anyones head.

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?
