    Alec has the ability and speed to take the ball wide into the basket and draw the +1 play. It also really is hard to defend as an opposing coach if the person taking it to the rim has decent speed and ball security and if opposing coaches use their weak side D to try stop it you leave a wide open 15ft jumper or 3 pt play. There is so many plays our coaches could draw up with this paint penetration (I think I'm probably over estimating their ability here). The Jazz so far this season have tried that with their starters and constantly being getting charges and or turnovers because they're not aware of what's around them and if it does go down, it's not been done with consistency.

    Foye took it to the basket once (?) last night because he was mad he couldn't get his beloved 3 pt play up or a curl of an inbound pass (which gordon also showed he could hit last night). Alec needs to play more minutes right now, there is literally nothing worse than our 2-3 combo in the starting rotation this year once you add consistency into the mix, they have break out games but that gets you nowhere in the long run. Alec also has the ability to run some plays with a fast PnR with Favors or a pick and pop with Kanter/Favors, replace with Jefferson if Ty keeps going to vets for being vets sake, not all vets are created equally Ty (nor are contracts for vets - sigh)

    Oh yeah Alec also has the ability to defend sometimes too which from everything I've seen of Foye this season is something that Foye needs to 'work' on. ('vets' - sigh). Alec is also decent at reading screens set from other teams and working around them before the target is hit with the ball. He needs to work a bit on his weak side D when he gets stuck on the weak side with a decent 3 pt shooter as his man but that's just a knowing your man sort of thing.

    **** off, SK!

    I can't ask questions when I don't watch a game?

    I'm happy as hell for the Burks crowd right now. Asking for a highlight real is trolling? **** that.
    So sorry, Citizen! I must have mistook you for the poster who was leaving sarcastic remarks on other threads. You can understand my confusion since you were theatrically paging someone to make a mix of Burks' 3 assists and then subsequently put him side by side with Kobe and Wade. Excuse those of us who have a difficult time telling when you are not busting everyone's balls since you do it constantly with regard to Burks. Glad to see your serious sensitive side. Except my deepest apologies.

    Is it safe to say he's in the rotation for the time being?

    Is there a player out there who contorts his body the same way Burks does?

    Probably, but not many.... One of the reasons i have been so pissed about him not playing is the fact that he is unique to our team... he does things no one else our team can do, and im sure that there are many times in games when we could have been using his talents but he is just sitting on the bench.

    Burks is special. He just is.
