    he lacks experience
    experience is a requirment to get minutes when jazz are healthy.
    so too bad he wont get playing time once wiliams and hayward return.
    so no minutes for him to gain experience to earn minutes

    I love Burks, I don't see him as being a PG. Defense is the main issue. I'm not comparing him to Manu (repeat: not comparing), but Manu can't play point. At the same time, I wouldn't rule it out and it would be incredible if he could. But I think his future is in taking the reins off to drive, control the ball, and break the offense. He can kill as a driver, the 1 on 1 and 2 on 2 PnR games, not so much as the PG who has to recognize defenses, find the mismatches, drive and kick.

    Those 3 things are easily teachable and tuned.
    Find mismatches- Isiaha Thomas guarding Big Al? Ok, easy enough. Biyombo guarding Milsap? Ok, easy enough.
    Drive and kick- So all I have to do is drive hard to the basket and pass to the opposite 3 corner and someone's already there? Sweet.
    Recognize defenses- Ok, so Jamaal Tinsley is guarding me? Wait, did I just walk past him as I was dribbling? Yes I did. He is slow.

    don't see him as being a PG.
    He has a GREAT handle on the ball, and keeps his nose up. He may not be the 2nd coming of Stockton at the point, but with him on the court instead of Earl or Tinsley, the sum total of the basketball ability the Jazz have on the floor goes way up.

    That's why he, Hayward, Millsap, AJ, and Favors should start. We'd never lose a game.

    Man, I miss the old PG_AB, why did you delete all your old posts, bro? They were something profoundly nostalgic.
