But my point was, Corbin has to have these thoughts in his head. He's a young coach with a so-so record. Getting fired now could ruin/hamper his career as a coach...
you canīt be a big time player with a name like Burks. With a name like Burks you can just get it to a solid role player. His name is to small, to be a big guy someday. But i think we need a guy like him, who can show a great game, sometimes you need him, but Corbin is to dump to play him.
He will never be great, but he will be a great role player.
Why they call him Big Al ? think of it...
"In practice Iím going against a big great player like Al," Kanter said. "So, whenever Iím on the court with other big men itís much easier."
No Kanter ,but more AL

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.
Burks has pretty much silenced all the critics now.
Someday we'll laugh at the fact that a washed up Tinsley played instead of Burks for half the season. And while it was happening, Tinsley had one of the worst stretches in his career, going several weeks without making a 3 pointer (and possibly without making a fg at all during a long stretch).
It's clear now that between Foye, Hayward, and Burks they don't need Tinsley to bring the ball over half court, immediately pass it to someone else, and then back out of the play and never touch the ball again (which is all Tinsley did the first month of the season).
Watching Burks play is one of the few reasons I turn on a Jazz game right now.
It's going to help us in the long run. He's playing pretty good for rotting on the bench all season.
He's playing within the offense, and usually has a good +- rating.
He missed a jumper, and makes mistakes not and again, but that is to be expected. Overall I think he's showing why some of us were begging for him to play.
"Most nights (The Jazz) couldnít stop a grandpa with a walker, particularly if he gave a head fake."
Just hopeing that ma Williams is packaged in a deal with Al/Paul to open up permanent minutes for Burks!!!
