    Alec Burks last 4 games

    Over Alec's last 4 games, he is Averaging 15 points, on 51% from the field and 44% from 3, 3 assists a game, .05 blocks, .75 steals, and 5 boards. all of this in about 28 minutes a night.

    This may be the start of what G-Time began doing last year when he would string a few good games together, play badly for a week and then string like 8 good games together.

    The 5 boards is especially encouraging

    Looks like all that time on the bench really paid off </Corbin>

    Ty Corbin would play a Josh Howard with torn ACL's, broken legs and let him wear a head band before letting Burks sniff the court.

    I've been pretty impressed with some of his passes, he's not really a true PG but his vision has gotten a lot better. More than that, I've been happy to see him start to figure out good vs bad shots, how to involve himself in the offense without driving too much, that kind of stuff. His game is much more nuanced than it was last year and with some time down the stretch here who knows what he can do in a year or two.

    I think Burks could be a 17ppg type player easy. the question will be if he is efficient and if he can do that while playing winning type basketball

    I must be teh only Jazz fan alive that thinks Burks needs to drive more. Having Burks not drive the ball into the paint is like having a Ferrari and only driving it to drop off the kids at school.

    Might do a great job dropping off the kids at school, but, it's not really where it excels.

    And to think the destiny of the Jazz rests on the relationship of two men

    I say bench him. We don't want to go above average as a team. It might ruin the team's tradition.

    Team tradition above all else.

    Burks is the guy that needs to learn to play like Manu and James Harden. He needs to get a bit craftier.

    This. That's why I want him to start at PG and tell the team to run. It puts the ball in his hands every possession. He's not a "true" PG stylistically (a la Rubio) but he could still be a GREAT point guard if you put the ball in his hands and he's in attack mode.

    I'd love to see this lineup get serious time together:

    PG - Burks
    SG - Foye
    SF - Hayward
    PF - Sap/Favors
    C - Jefferson

    This lineup would thrive off Burks getting into the paint. Two shooters on the wings, two bigs who can score on the interior if their bigs help off.

    I'm not satisfied, Burks needs even more time. C'mon Ty, give Burks more burn!
