    Why question Corbin, his losing record speaks for itself....

    Oddly, there is much wisdom in that sentence.

    The results on the court are mind boggling. Our record, our team chemistry, the play of the starters, etc. Foye has a nice 3 pt shot, and makes good passes.
    I fail to find any other reason he belongs on the court so much. I want to see Foye play, just not for 30 mins. He simply gives up too much on the defensive end.
    I can understand the win now mentality that the Jazz have always had, but at what costs? I think it's fair to say, we win now when we know who we are and what our talent can do instead of letting the talent rot at the end of the bench.

    It drives me crazy to not see him play, he is full of potential and is something the Jazz haven't had for awhile, a super athletic 2 guard. If he is traded it will come back to bite us.

    It's agonizing because he's not playing at all. He completely glued to the bench. It's a travesty we aren't finding time for him when guys like Marvin, Foye, and Hayward have been extremely inconsistent.
    But hey at least we are getting Carrol time

    Even Watson, a 30-something corpse who's been injured for 9 months and made negative public statements about his playing time last year is instantly in the rotation when he is cleared for play.

    Burks must have ****** Ty's sister or something... I just really can't think of any other explantation.

    Among 2nd year players, Burks ranks 38/48 in minutes played and 39/48 in games played

    Does that seem right for a kid that among his rookie class last year was 19/81 in win shares, 17/81 in pts, 21/81 in mins, etc.


    I'm very intrigued and confused about the whole situation

    I predict Burks gets his season high in minutes tonight.

    No. The team started to be more stable, so Corbin will still play the same way a couple of games.

    I think he considered possible garbage time against OKC tonight, while making that prediction.

    I don't know, Corbin could put him in for 5 minutes. I'm with frank on this.
