    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.
    You're right. Let's be rational. The Jazz simply aren't playing Burks out of spite and know that he's the only real superstar on our team but prefer veterans so they have to hide his talent by not giving him a chance.

    If this is true what do you think Utah could get for a Burks and Big Al/Sap trade?

    lol

    I wonder if this franklin kid was crying last year when we dared suggest Corbin should play Gordon Hayward over Josh Howard and Raja Bell. Hell if he was around in 2006 he probably fully supported the Jazz benching Deron Williams for Milt Palacio.

    Forgive us for seeing enough evidence over the years to suggest that maybe the Jazz FO isn't perfect.

    Pretty much hit the nail on the head.

    To the Jazz FO/Corbin apologists, let's not rewrite history to defend them.

    That's a bit melodramatic. Corbin and others are human beings with biases and prejudices who also can make mistakes. We don't know the situation with Burks, and creating a story about possible problems that we're not privy to is unnecessary.

    We simply don't know what's happening. And from what we saw last season, Burks is a capable player worthy of developing.

    Either way, I am not opposed to trading him if it brings back good value.

    My stance is that there has to be more to the story than what we know. I am reserving judgement.

    Bledsoe. The Clippers have been starting Willie Green, who also happens to be our starting PG.

    Wow I can't believe the ****-sureness of the Burke haters. He rotted on the bench half of last year cuz of Raja, started playing and was crucial in several games down the stretch of the season. Then he only went on to dominate summer league. To Burks doubters, a sincere **** you. Jazz apologists
    Long Live JYD

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    Sounds like Corbin is giving another player the silent treatement. Always a wise move when you manage people for a living.

    Sucks when it's a guy (most of us) like - isn't it?
