    What did you mean? Did you score? If so, how many times?

    When I was repping Burks before the season started I made frequent references to his slashing abilities -- which are unique for this team and therefore impossible to ignore. So I thought. As it turns out, unique abilities are a recipe for getting squeezed out by lower-ceiling known-commodities.

    Perhaps a player like Burks shouldn't get so easily frustrated (if that's actually what's happening), but he does have a couple of reasons. Moreover, the ability to get frustrated doesn't point to entirely bad qualities in a player; the staff has to cultivate the good in that ability and carefully clip the bad qualities. I can't see any of this from my seat.

    Burks and Kanter should both being getting lots more minutes... Foye and Tinsley playing too many + we need to trade Al or Sap. Simple. I hope we haven't pissed in our own pool.

    It's ok if we have, we've compensated by adding extra chlorine.

    Maybe we could package Burks, the GS pick, and our own pick to move up in the draft this next year and get us a point guard, or a really good scoring wing. Trades always excite me so, either way. Keep Burks, don't keep him. Who cares.

    When was the last time a rumor like this leaked out and it actually happened? Seriously the Jazz are the most guarded team in the league when it comes to these types of things.

    If he gets traded I'll believe it. Until then...I am going to say. Yea right, sure he's on the block.
    Playoffs here we come. Pass the damn Kool-Aid

    At least 4 examples have been given in this thread. While the rumor might be completely baseless, it's not exactly all that far-fetched.

    WOW. 18 pages on a player with these stats:

    17% FG
    00% 3pt
    20% FT

    Serious? Come on guys. I said earlier that Burks = CJ without a 3 pt shot. Burks is making CJ look like an All-Star. The more we see of Burks, the more I am thinking Burks = Almond.

    Yup. Send him to the D-league and he'll be the #1 best played in the world (who plays in the D-league).

    He did have a few decent games last year. Oh and he killed it in the preseason. If that doesnt mean future all star I dont know what does. Ignore the stats and think POTENTIAL!

    Obviously discussions of small sample sizes are hopeless with some individuals, so why bother.

    This working out to be quite the self fulfilling prophecy for the jazz, intended or not. Play Burks a small amount of sporadic, meaningless minutes, and then point to his production as to why he isn't playing. Yeah okay. And of course anyone who thinks Burks deserves PT are convinced he's a future all star.
    Long Live JYD
