    Last night's game was a good time to get Burks some heavy minutes. SA plays small ball both in their first and second unit, with Duncan and Splitter as their only legitimate bigs, and neither on the court at the same time. Their PFs Bonner and Diaw can stretch the floor like a guard. The Jazz were not getting much inside all night, especially the second unit with Favors and Kanter, so my question to Corbin is why play two bigs, not run any plays for them, and expect the results to be positive? This lineup seems like it would be ideal against a small ball lineup:

    Jefferson/Favors
    Ma Williams
    Hayward
    Burks
    Mo Williams

    You get four three point shooters, three slashers/playmakers, and overall have the footspeed necessary to fight over screens and guard the three point line very well. Millsap played well but probably could sacrifice some minutes at PF to WIlliams. Kanter realistically shouldn't have been used at all in this game.
    I think that lineup would be alot of fun

    Let me be on the record that if Burks has a bad attitude then I want him sitting on the bench.

    In every interview I've heard with him he talks about being overlooked and that gives him motivation to be better.

    I can't think of any better motivation than Tinsley playing and Burks not.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    I dunno .. I might not find that motivating at all.

    I could see it motivating during a rookie season, not as a soph that had a better pre-season than three players ahead of you. I would find that quite demotivating.

    I bet Corbin still thinks Raja is a better player than Burks.

    I'm at a loss. If Ty doesn't correct this fiasco soon, I will lose all faith in him.

    Burks is my favorite player on the team. He is a baller, and he knows how to get to the line. Possibly better than anyone else on the team. Does this message board have a large enough following that we could plan a chant to be started at the game, or maybe some signage... Look at the Knicks fans getting Sheed into the game. I know that wasn't planned, but hey it could be worth a shot. Just to let everyone know that the fans are unhappy.

    I want a Burks jersey soooo bad, but I can't justify buying one because he is just going to ride pine till he bails on us or be package in a trade because management sees him as a valuable asset that is not even playing.
