    So you dont agree that he has earned minutes, but you think he should get minutes when he starts playing well..... and he started playing well last year and this summer and pre-season..... hmm, you dont seem to make sense

    Ive also said summer and preseason dont mean ****. So he played ok sometimes last year, then we got a few new players who are better than him, now he has a tougher time getting pt, I dont see whats so hard to understand.

    You said when he plays well he should get time, we both agree he played well already (last year).... he doesn't get ANY time.
    I dont see what is so hard to understand.

    The kid has a tremendous amount of talent. There's no reason he shouldn't be getting minutes. If the rumors regarding Burks being shipped out are true, then it must be due to his off court demeanor. I can't imagine the Jazz brass wanting to give up on him for any other reason.


    This could be true. However, I recall Corbin being asked early this season if Burks would play more. He said that Alec had worked hard, and deserved mins.
    His tone was that we had a log jam, and that Burks was the odd man out. He might not be telling us the full story, but I believe it's a case of Corbin
    wanting to play the vets(nothing more).


    We've haven't heard any negative story about Burks or his work eithic with the Jazz.

    at this poitn i'd trade jeffersons no defense ball hogging minutes for burks ballhogging .

    I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
    Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.

    LOL Lol breaks his pledge 5 days later hahahaha

    Makes sense for Big Al Sap, but those guys are taking Burks mins. We aren't trading Marvin or Foye.

    haha, yes but sometimes it gives al a cahnce to feature his potentially kick out of the double teams that he attracts.. I dont think ty is a smart coach... there are alot better, but there are also alot worse. i am hoping he is still just playing with rotations. burks does deseve a few mins a game. he brings energy and instant movment. i dont agree with with peolpe saying he should get all of foyes mins foye brings something to the jazz they havent had in a long time THREE POINTERS!!! but he also sucks at D.... we have alot of good players ZERO greats

    I laugh every time I hear someone suggest we are doing something to get ready to make a trade.

    We arent making any trades this year. This is our team.

    Al and Paul will be FA this summer. We will get nothing for them. This is how the Jazz operate. The time for trading Al or Paul was last year. The door is shut.

    I think this is more of the Jazz's problem than TyCo is.

    I think TY feels that Foye is better right now and is afraid to lose now.

    If we suck bad enough during the middle of the season, then the pressure to win now will be taken off. Ty can finally play the kids without pressure and we will magically start winning and make a late season playoff run to the eighth seed. In the first round the pressure will return, vets will get their minutes back and we will be swept by SAS/LAL/OKC (pick one). This scenario sounds familiar. Very depressing.
