    Kyle Weaver was light years ahead of Almond.

    It'll be nice if Burks gets packaged with Millsap or Jefferson before the trade deadline just so this thread will die.
    It's kind of true, even though I like the kid. They're just killing Burk's career anyway.

    Or they could...you know....play him.
    Why would they play him just for the sake of playing him? I'd rather see the Jazz sucker someone else into making him their special product.
    .

    I would have a different opinion if the kid showed even a remote propensity for learning basketball. His bbiq is about as low as they come.

    There are plenty of athletes in the NBA that can put their head down and attack the rim. For some reason JF thinks Alec is something rare, just needing to be unleashed. I dont see it.

    I dont think most jazzfanz really have any idea what to think of him (other than you and frank who think he just sucks).

    Most of us would just like to see him in rotation so we can see what exactly he is or isn't.

    Wes matthews was a guy nobody wanted, then was given a chance and turned into a good player..... same with demarre carroll and im sure you can find countless other guys who were sitting on the bench and then once they got a chance showed that they could be a good player..... most of us just want burks to get that chance.

    Too bad he has an allstar like foye playing in front of him though.

    As far as the whole "put his head down and attack the rim" thing, the jazz organization itself has said many times that they believe he has point guard skills and in fact have played him in that postion in preseason and summer league, so apparently they didn't think he was so one dimensional.

    Look back and you'll see the same people calling for Sloan's head and now Corbins. They're the same people who wanted more Fesenko, CJ Miles, Mo. Almond. Same people who think Burks can play a position he has no skills for (point guard). You'd think they'd notice the trend.

    That's not the point - nobody is saying to just throw him out there for 35mpg and live with the results.

    Yeah Burks made plenty of bone head plays (mostly on defense) last season but he also showed some promise. He played in the summer league (which he didn't have to do) and came to camp prepared. He obviously worked on his jumper and increased his range and his performances in the preseason reflected that.

    In other words, the kid went from Point A to Point B and got better. Now to bench a lottery pick after that is questionable. To bench a lottery pick for the sake of playing Randy ****ing Foye is just plain retarded.

    Corbin loves to talk about what a deep team he has. He doesn't have a deep team. What he currently has is a group of starters that are only slightly better than his group of bench players; which creates the appearance of them being "deep" To find ZERO minutes for Burks among this team of somewhat decent to mediocre players is a failure on management's part - plain and simple.

    I dont remember anybody thinking mo almond should play alot..... a few liked cj, but not very many.
    On fesenko you may be correct. (although most people just wanted fesenko to play instead of jarron collins, or francisco elson)
