    I have to say, I'd almost mailed in the season emotionally until I saw the 4th quarter of Dallas. Absolutely shocked Ty went with Burks at the backup 2, and liked seeing it again tonight.

    Burks might not be able to handle the job. But he can do things on the floor with the ball that no other player we have will ever be able to do. Committing to letting him learn or fail is crucial.

    Honestly, if we're just going to trade Al and Sap, do it now. Favors and Kanter can't possibly score reliably in the post. So if we're not going to go for it, then just get the losing started.

    I'm not advocating anything actually. And I think it's pointless to have Ty coach Favors or Kanter. So I guess I'd rather have as much ammo as possible built up to getting Ty canned so we can move into the future with those two being coached by someone competent.

    I am fine with that as long as he gets a lot of those minutes playing with Burks and Hay. If he is taking away minutes from them then thats way to many

    Foye needs to be down to 20 minutes at least. He's the classic player you leave on the floor if he's hot, yank if he's not. His "value" has little to do with who else is on the floor.

    I can agree with this. I do like the way he has played with Burks at the point though.

    yeah, if burks is at point they're limited with options at the 2, especially with marvin out and gordon playing the majority of his minutes at 3.

    If this sticks, it's a monument to how poor of a brain Ty has that he used it in the pre-season, only to dump it stricly because of tenure (has anyone yet devised a real reason he benched Burks to begin with?).

    I'm just glad the asinine "Burks hasn't earned it" or "Burks has proved nothing" comments have (at least temporarily) stopped. I think its pretty clear whenever he plays extended minutes that he easily already is a rotation player in the NBA, in some capacity. That its evident in his second year (though I thought it was after his first) is what's promising.

    (Knocking on wood... don't want a stupid I told you so post to derail the general consistency we're seeing from him) Like any youngn' I expect there to be plenty more ups and downs. FT shooting is paramount.

    How about Al with 4 And 1s. I know it was against the Bobcats, but still, that's awesome.

    And damn near 8 guys were in double figures. A great complete team effort tonight.

    And nothing against Earl, but he just played his way to the deep bench IMO.

    Big Al has been playing more physical lately, even guarding the pick n roll better as of late.

    Did you miss the first 3 1/2 quarters of the Mavs game? Dude has shown that he can move his feet when he wants to. On defense, he only wants to move his feet about 20% of the time.

    Burks' game has not grown at all and he's playing exactly like he has since he was drafted. He started this year playing amazing team ball, showing exceptional court vision and passing, and adding solid FT shooting. Ty and the coaching staff have done nothing to shape his current game. He's looked like a PG from day one, like he does now. I can't believe he hasn't got more PT until now.
    Freckle Liiiiiip.

    Iggys and Wingnuts probably had the game on.

    Man I was getting so mad at Al. I agree that he can move his feet on D. He just gives up and it pisses me off.
