    So this 'rumor' has only one obscure source?
    Don't even Gobert.

    Am I the only poster who actually believes Foye is better than Burks? Cuz he is. And Burks was one of my 3 pet prospects that year.
    Foye just helps to win. Burks is the one who wins.

    Foye is a good 10min guy, but give him 30+min and you'll lose.

    An undersized chucker who can't defend? He gets hot now and again, and will hit some big shots I'm sure.

    I just ask you is he the future? Does Burks have a chance to be a more complete player?
    So you'd rather drop Burks, and take Foye long term if you could only choose one?

    Burks can't shoot midrange and doesn't pass or play within the, ah, "offense". Foye is better.
    Watch the Lakers game, and focus on Burks. I dare you.
    Come back to me, and tell me if your thoughts change.

    Foye can do one thing - hit a spot up jumper. He's below average in everything else. Burks, on the other hand, has the potential to become a complete player. But what the Jazz are doing to Burks could ruin his career.

    My question is, if the Jazz knew about his strengths/weaknesses as well (which they did), and those weaknesses are the reason why Burks isn't getting any minutes, then why the hell did the Jazz draft him to begin with?
    Because they had to pick someone and Jimmer was off the board.

    Meh, I can of hate statements like these. If a player isn't mentally tough enough to overcome not playing in his 2nd year, then he probably isn't mentally tough to become a worthwhile player.

    You might be correct but it's still dumb not playing him ... dumb, dumb, and dumber.

    Fed up ... how can you continue to follow a team when the management and coaching continually screws up its chances to get better. That's my dilemma. It all started with AK, but there are numerous other examples since Stock-Malone retired.
