    This is really strange if true. There has to be something we dont know. Burls hasnt been given a real shot to succeed. Its just been short looks here and there.

    I agree. There has to be more to this story or it is a false rumor.

    This is getting ridiculous now... we can't even give Burks an opportunity to grow? Are you kidding me?

    Burks is not what he has been built up to be on this forum.

    That is all.

    But we don't really know what he is or isn't because Burks is playing guys who won't even be here in three or four years when we could possibly fight for a ring.

    He never got a fair shake here. What a shame. Foye, Carroll, Tinsley, Marvin are all passing fads.
    They all got a better look so far then Burks.

    I bet the Jazz have seen him in practice and haven't been impressed. Also, when he's on the floor he's clearly not doing what he has been assigned to do, unless of course Corbin told him to go in and completely take over the game and dominate the ball. Even if that was the case he has failed so far, even though he's tried.

    Everyone here wants Burks to be something he's not so bad their willing to see it when it doesn't exist.

    Burks hasnt looked good this year, but hasnt had a real chance this year. I agree we dont know what he is, but I thought we saw some good things from him last year. Some real promising things. I just dont get what happened. Where did all the enthusiasm from the team about Burks go?

    Healthy doses of reality and reaching in this thread.

    - We do not know what goes on behind the scenes with Alec
    - We've seen enough to be justified in questioning there to be a coaching problem.
    - We really don't know how good Alec can be as a starter.. am I wrong?

    They are just blown away by the great play of Foye, and Marvin. It's hard to find time for a promising young player when you are doing so well.

    Burks played 15.9 minutes last season compared to an average of 18.5 for picks 10-14. That includes zero adjustment for playoff (jazz) vs. non-playoff caliber teams. Burks has not shown the Jazz anything besides a propensity to drive a la "hit the G spot" Giricek.

    I'm sorry.

    That goes against everything we've heard through out the past 2 seasons...

    I don't feel like looking for links, but I remember Jazz players talking about how Burks should win ROtY if he plays as well in game as he does in practice (last year). And I remember a lot of talk about how much Burks game improved over the summer.

    You're just making the assumptions that justify what you want to believe. The fact is, Burks produced pretty well in his rookie season in limited minutes, and we haven't seen him at all this season. Let's remain rational.

    I hear Royce White is available.
    Out of nowhere, the Utah Jazz are both frightening and fascinating and there is suddenly no limit to their potential. -SBNation 8 march, 2015. ***My Draft wish List: Bobby Portis, Alpha Kabba, George Lucas.
