    This. This. THIS.

    There are a lot of players being misused on this roster. An example of that is Favors: He should be used in pick & roll type plays MUCH more often. This Jazz offense just isn't cutting it as is.

People back off Burks the way they used to with Brewer. Wasted pick.
    In the pre-season and summer league he could shoot. (led the team in 3 point percentage in pre-season)

    So i think he CAN shoot, he just hasn't gotten the minutes to show it in the regular season... last night he shot horribly, but so does everyone in the nba on certain nights. Soon there will be either an injury or the jazz will lose a bunch and ty will play him or he will eventually beat out someone else for some minutes.
    In time we will find out what we have with burks, but as of now i dont think anyone really knows how he will turn out. (I still have faith in him being a very good player, but i could be wrong)

    Burks has been brutal so far, absolutely atrocious. But yes, some of this must certainly fall on the coaching. It is terrible to see a second year player regress as much as it seems so far.

    I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
    Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.

    LOL Lol breaks his pledge 5 days later hahahaha

    you know TyCo is really an A-Ho sometimes.

    Hayward has been wildy inconsistent, but is given the time. He has periods where his shot is way off, and he is never out of the rotation.
    Burks has to be given time every game even if it's only 10 mins. He's got to be in every game.

    If Hayward is given the chance to make errors, why not Burks?

    Young players need time to develop, how can Burks develop without getting playing time ?

    Ive never seen any Franchise that can kill talented playsers consistently like the Utah Jazz.

    Why they call him BIG-AL, think of it

    (outrageous comment alert)

    Sounds like the Jazz need to be downgraded to an NBDL team where it's all about developing talent and the wins don't really mean anything. Anybody remember the days when players came into the league with four years of college under them ready to immediately make an impact on the team? No, really, does anybody, because I wasn't there, not that old just yet, but seriously, it would be nice. That's why we have an NBDL affiliate team and Burks and the other guy need to go there and develop so that they can actually contribute to the team when they are on the floor. Burks doesn't have a consistant shot? NBDL. Burks doesn't know how to follow an offence? NBDL! Burks doesn't know how to play when there are four other talented players around him? NB-- yeah, you get the picture. I am done crying for minutes for the young players. If they can't produce right now in real game time situations, they can sit their tails on our NBDL affiliate team until they get it. If that pisses them off, they are too arrogant to become anything.

    Edit: oh by the way, unless I'm mistaken, they took away the restriction where teams could only send players down a limited time, so there's no fear of wasting that. If anyone can confirm this, that'd be great.

    Like, for instance? Shandon Anderson? Quincy Lewis? Howard Eisley? Curtis Borchardt? Morris Almond? Dee Brown? Jarron Collins? Raul Lopez? Jacque Vaughn? Greg Ostertag? Paul Milsap? DeShawn Stevenson? Robert Whaley? Jeremy Evans? Who are we talking here? Karl Malone? John Stockton? Blue Edwards? Thurl Bailey? Bobby Hansen? Mark Eaton?

    Could you be saying the Jazz ruined awesome players like Kirk Snyder? or Kris Humphries? or Eric Maynor, Kosta Koufos, Ronnie Brewer, CJ Miles, Mo Williams, and Deron Williams?




    *sidenote -- did you know the Jazz drafted Greg Deane from Utah in 1979, Alan Taylor from BYU in 1980, and Steve Trumbo from BYU in 1982?
    ----------- and how could I leave this one out, a guy from Texas in 1985 named Mike Wacker.

    STFU! The Jazz would be a 70 win team if it wasnt for KOC and Corbin working in cahoots to keep these young hall of famers down! Kirk Snyder was a rare athlete with the heart of a champion and the skills of All Star.
