    So we're winning then, right?

    I'm going to assume playing worse players won't help that either.

    It won't. This is true. In fact, it will change very little. That's what makes this situation so funny -- the justification for playing time is based on the argument that it makes us competitive. Sure, other guys may be more polished, but whether it's veterans, young guys, or ven me on the floor, the impact (given our situation) I negligible.

    Foye is taking all of Burks' minutes, and he sucks, so that shows you how much the Jazz think of Burks.

    There is just no excuse for Foye to be playing this much. He simply isn't good enough, and his defense kills most of the offense he gives us.

    In almost 30 mins tonigh he gave us 5 points, and 1 dime. That simply isn't getting it done. If I were Corbin he'd be benched for tonight's Wizard game, and Burks would get his mins.

    I thought it would be like you said, lots of minutes for players on crappy teams, the numbers didn't show that, but I didn't keep track of the count. But through the wonders of the internet I was able to pull the same data again today and count. It looks like the NBA updated their stats, it now shows 48 sophomores having played this year.

    Alec Burks ranks 35th in minutes per game and 33 in total minutes. Kanter is 25th and 20th.

    Using just Burks total minutes, there are 15 players on teams with records worse than the Jazz who have played more minutes. That means 16 (32-15-Kanter) that are playing on teams with records better than or equal to the jazz.

    It is also interesting to see that most of the players that are close to Alec in minutes played were late first rounders. The closest lottery pick is Jimmer, who still gets more minutes than Alec.


    take a look here
    Sorry page not found.
    But yes, I was waiting for someone to provide minutes per game in the context of lottery pick sophmores this year.

    Burks isnt doing himself any favors when he keeps missing free throws.

    Any pun intended?
