    nothing about burks (cept the 2nd half last night, and summer league) would i ever describe as in-rhythm, thats why i see the upside tho, once the game slows down for him hes gonna realize the onus is on the defense(he realized this for a bit yesterday when he saw lil isaiah beating his chest)
    right now hes put the onus on himself, worrying about being benched for mistakes

    (ty's on him like white on rice, he barely missed a runner early 2nd quarter, was out in seconds.)
    I think the 20-ish minutes he's been getting per night is about right. Ty's also giving him plenty of opportunities to both play off the ball and initiate the offense, as well as letting him play in crunch time occasionally. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Gordo and Mo are back. If he gets less than 12 minutes per game or loses minutes to Earl...

    I've been happy just seeing Burks get some minutes lately, at the very least he looks like he ought to be an off the bench scorer, and if his playmaking develops a little bit more a slashing SG with decent handles who can pass a little would be really nice.

    Could be a great fit with Gordo with the driving and drawing defenders only to kick it out for three.

    alan moore litterally wants nothing to do with any of the movie adaptations of his writings (including V for Vendetta) just takes the $, that dude is the man.

    he also wrote the best batman/joker graphic novel, its called the killing joke. and as a bit of a spoiler it ends with an epic joke.

    EDIT: if you know any batman enthusiasts that arent too young for a more clever/brutal version of the stories, get them this book for their birthday or something, its really good
    Yeah I didn't read the comic books and couldn't figure out why the director shoved a blue **** on the screen.

    This thread is a wast of time, as I see it, the Jazz will either resign Mo, or trade for a young pg, or draft one, while at the same time resigning Mo. We need Burks to develop into a scoring attacking guard that puts lots of pressure on defenses and gets to the foul line. That's his upside! Pg isn't his strength, and don't see him playing point beyond this year. The only reason he's doing it now is out of necessity due to Mo being out and the only other options being those two old guys from the assisted living facility. Again the thing the Jazz need most is what Burks can provide at sg.

    But when Mo comes back and if the Jazz get a good young PG I hope the rotation is like this in the future:

    Mo/New PG (or vice versa)
    Burks/Foye (or whoever if Foye doesn't resign)
    Hayward/Caroll/Marv
    Kanter/Sap or Al (whoever the resign if they resign one)
    Favors/Sap or Al (same as above)

    (cont'd vaguely from my last po

    this is why in the upcoming draft we should draft at least one guy to further perpetuate the soldier attitude (Olapido, less so Porter, maybe Goodwin [i wanna see what hes got tourney time]), and hopefully one big potential guy whos lost some stock(specifically alex poythress, Goodwin may fit in this category too) let that kid see how we do things around here, from what ive read from pkm hes quite smart, hell get it over here[ty will break that inconsistency he shows with his 1 mistake u sit style]. (when i say get it, im not talking about minutes) -- (i do think Isaiah Austin fits both of the catagories i cited, except i think hes preformed quite nicely this year, his body brings him overwhelming negative press, cannot believe someone compared him to frye in the draft thread, hahahahahahahahhaha yall do have some good jokes here!)

    imagine this athleticism in lets say 2015

    Burks, Hayward, Poythress, Favors, Kanter ...... (sooooo many blocks/rebs, where u gonna hide your undersized guys...)

    olapido 6th man, DMC, and wed need a few bigs a backup pg and a shooter (maybe foye)... thats my vision, i hope atleast this particular post makes yall laugh.

    while fantasy is the topic... say the word and ill post the team and player stats of my 2017 utah jazz season in 2k13 where we went 80-2.[4****s n giggles, obviously] started the season with a 50 game winningstreak (all games simulated, only intervened thru adjusting the rosters, coaches, strategies + training camps) kanter won the mvp, i imported the next few draft classes to to make it realistic) -that being said i traded for the magics draft picks, chris paul signed with us after the 2012 season, when he left. i signed john wall in his prime (no trade overrides, thats cheating). in my 100's of simulations i never had a season like that.had to stop the million things i was doing and write down all the stats.
    burks has way more value as a sg. He's not a pg! Why do you think I said this thread is a wast of time.

    Burks is a 2 and I don't think he is or should try to be a PG. That said, like alot of versatile guards - he CAN play PG in a pinch - such as when your starting PG is out and your backups are Jamaal Tinsley and Earl Watson. I think Burks and Foye should be on the floor at the same time - neither is a pure point but both have a good handle and can take some of the ball-handling responsibility off each other (we've seen teams put their best on-ball defender on Burks, pressure the heck out of him, and he's had some issues).

    Honestly - I think the main reason for all the "Is Burks a point guard" debate is happening is because it's really the only position he can play for the Jazz this year - because Kevin O'Connor decided to build a roster with 5 wings when the maximum you could play is 4. So you've got 2 vets in Marvin and Foye, your best wing in Hayward who doesn't even start, a hustle glue-guy in Demarre who is impossible to keep out of the rotation and a young, talented wing in Burks who needs minutes to develop.

    "It's one loss." -Ty Corbin, 4/3/13.

    In KOC's defense, Carroll was not expected to do anything and turned out to be a fairly capable NBA player. A good problem to have, especially if he can add value to a trade as a throw in. Its all up to KOC now to cash in the chips and get something done by the deadline.

    keep this thread alive if you want, i will be back with bottles of magic water after the final game of the season.

    (i knew the ty comments were too real for some. 200+ views since then no one wants to respond, bravo on having private forums here, excellent idea)

    his coaching might not be working but the psychology he has pushed thru-ought his team has penetrated out into the minds of the fans, which is al and paul are ones in favor and the kids are the scapegoats.

    infact like most times, i believe the contrary. Paul and Al are clearly the scapegoats(you all hate em right?!?!) and have in return for minutes taken the heat off the kids and allowed them to play as corbs wished to develop him. corbin is taking the brunt of the blame for protecting and engraining hunger/consistency in our kids. i commend him for it. see how much camera time millsap got when he picked up the 5th foul... thats your scapegoat not the kids.

    lastly my sincerest apologies to anyone whos been offended by anything i said, dont mean any harm. im just an excitable hot blooded brooklynite-Itailian and i love my jazz(im the only person i know in NY with favors and kanter jerseys). ive gota 2 guns up style, im like that with everything. im infact in the business of being correct and if you had me on your side youd have a different perspective about my methods, sorry again if i offended anyone in anyway.

    Man is only great when he acts from passion.

    cya later brothas, even u gyp!
    Thank god! Close thread.
