    Burks was pretty bad tonight. Had a long wide open 20 footer that was an airball, and a wide open 3 that only hit glass.
    Ok defensively and had a nice drive, but for the most part he sucked.

    This kid better slow the game down and get some handles like Tyreke Evans or he's not going to last too long in the league.

    I think he will be fine. He is 21 years old (most guys are still in college at his age) and has barely recieved any playing time at all.... yet he is arguably still better than randy foye, cj miles, raja bell, and josh howard. All of those guys have been in the league for like 8 years minimum.

    I like how he has one bad game, and Franklin comes out to bash him. He better blah blah or he's done.

    I didn't even think it was that bad of a game. He had some pretty amazing passes, would have had several highlight worthy assists if teammates had converted the easy shots.

    I think he's making a strong case to play pg.

    Ease up there, Burks lover. All I said is what any coach in the league is going to tell him. He plays way too fast and needs to raise his bbiq in order to first take what the defense gives him, and then make the defense give him what he wants. Catching and driving full speed ahead isn't going to cut it with talent alone. He needs to get handles and get his wits about him.

    Check yo Burks shelf life.

    Your criticism of burks is correct... however even if he doesn't improve at all he is still as good as cj miles, foye, howard, and bell so he can still be in the league for many years.
    So you saying he wont be in the league for very long is incorrect IMO, even though your criticism is correct.

    Cut Tinsley, play Foye and Burks at the backup guard spots.

    I'd also like to see Milsap come off the bench and Favors start, but that's another topic.

    Based on what has developed, it appears to me that the Jazz are trying to convert Burks from a shooting guard to a point guard. And obviously he has a long way to go, so maybe that's why they were sitting him on the bench to study the position and then slowly start to break him in ... of course I'm speculating and it may just have to with Mo being out and Watson playing so poorly.

    Burks has always been a ballhandling guard.

    I wish he'd get back in the habit of getting to the rim more often.
    He's been taking too many mid-range jump shots and those shots are the worst to take in the NBA.

    Good thing he's making them but he needs to get back to what made me like him so much.
