    you can´t be a big time player with a name like Burks. With a name like Burks you can just get it to a solid role player. His name is to small, to be a big guy someday. But i think we need a guy like him, who can show a great game, sometimes you need him, but Corbin is to dump to play him.

    He will never be great, but he will be a great role player.

    Al is soft ? he is just a nice guy. Sometimes he avoids contact, just to protect other players from his strength. He is a player, who cares for other players. Trust me dude, they say BIG-AL breaks the neck of a bull, just with his pure hands.
    Why they call him BIG-AL, think of it

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Burks is as good as Dwayne (not as big/strong, etc.), but if he never gets a chance, how will we ever know how good the kid is?

    This team is full of players that are just oozing with upside and I wish they'd play more (Burks, Kanter, Favors and Hayward). I think Corbin knows who he should be playing/developing, but I also think he's scared to do so, because if he gives those players more experience which will make the team better in the long run, but at the expense of losing now, it could cost him his job.
    Since Corbin's job is to win now, and not speculate on who may or may not be producing in 5 years, it could cost him his jobs.

    Seems logical to me

    Bump.

    Burks has pretty much silenced all the critics now.

    Someday we'll laugh at the fact that a washed up Tinsley played instead of Burks for half the season. And while it was happening, Tinsley had one of the worst stretches in his career, going several weeks without making a 3 pointer (and possibly without making a fg at all during a long stretch).

    It's clear now that between Foye, Hayward, and Burks they don't need Tinsley to bring the ball over half court, immediately pass it to someone else, and then back out of the play and never touch the ball again (which is all Tinsley did the first month of the season).

    We will laugh (or be pissed) especially hard when we think back to when raja bell and cj miles (and to a lesser extent josh howard) played in front of him.

    Watching Burks play is one of the few reasons I turn on a Jazz game right now.
    It's going to help us in the long run. He's playing pretty good for rotting on the bench all season.
    He's playing within the offense, and usually has a good +- rating.

    He missed a jumper, and makes mistakes not and again, but that is to be expected. Overall I think he's showing why some of us were begging for him to play.

    If we're sending that much money out, we're getting a hell of a lot back. It better be expiring.
