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

    Williams would be the starting SF of the future next to Kanter and Favors. Also a back-up PF for when Millsap leaves this summer. I'm just concerned that his shooting percentage is low.

    So you are not worried that he is not a SF? Interesting.

    I think he is an SF a la Paul Pierce, but he needs to work on his mid-range game and passing.

    This. Being "available" isn't the same as being "shopped".

    That seems like a broad assumption from the limited amount of information we have.

    Palacio starting over D Will is 100% on Jerry Sloan. The organization allowed him to coach as he saw fit. I doubt the FO was thrilled about D Will not starting.

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.
    I don't necessarily disagree with you...

    But...

    Why isn't Jefferson held to anywhere close to the same standard? Do the Jazz really want him to constantly chuck up jumpers and never ever pass the ball or get to the FT line? What about Hayward? Mo? Millsap? Foye? Marvin?

    In just the last 2 years I can think of 6 players who couldn't be doing what the Jazz were asking them to do yet they weren't ever held accountable.

    If Burks isn't doing his job or isn't coachable, then I'm down with looking to shop him.

    But this needs to be applied consistently.

    We can't just bury someone like Burks and let someone like Jefferson do whatever the hell he wants, hurt our team much MUCH more, and never ever be held accountable. We can't criticize a 2nd year 2 guard for his decision making while ignoring Mo Williams's decisions.

    Hold EVERYONE accountable.
    Lakers Suck.

    That's Ty's coaching philosophy to a T.

    Foye continues to get minutes even when producing suck fests like tonight. Burks has one night like Foye's night tonight and gets numerous DNP-CDs in a row.

    Anyone who doesn't think Burks has talent doesn't know much about basketball. And I don't think the Jazz people who are making the decisions, whoever that might be do -- look who they signed (Marvin and Foye). I don't know how they can play Foye over Burks. I don't know how they keep giving Foye so many minutes. Look at the other players they have let go -- don't me started. They dump Burks and I'm dumping the Jazz. I've had enough of their stupidity and I can't follow a team that can barely beat the league's worst team that's playing us without their two best players. An era has ended in Utah. It started when Jerry left and they traded DWill. But I think it actually started before then, when Larry passed away. The only way they can reclaim their respect is to get someone like Horny or Stockton to be the head coach. I guess Ty earned the job, but damn, Horny was so much smarter a player. Maybe Horny doesn't want to be a head coach. Anyway, after watching tonight's game, I'm ready to bolt anyway. They need to dismantle it, keep Hayward, Kanter, and Favors -- and Burks, but apparently they are going to dump him. I've always sensed we knew more than they did and this move is the proof.
