    Also, that journeyman played more minutes than Hayward last night.

    This Burks biz is a ****ing tragedy in my books. We knew he was a hero baller when we drafted him, he appears to have worked hard on his body and game, and he did well in pre-season tests.

    For me, it has everything to do with a lack of stones in the coaching staff and a lack of imagination in their offense. Bull****. No exaggeration.
    Meh. I just don't like Burks hopper style.

    Here we have one player:

    17% FG
    00% 3pt
    20% FT

    We are proclaiming him an All-Star in the making, but Corbin sucks and is making him suck. Then we bag on this guy:

    45% from 3 pt
    88% from the ft
    38% from fg

    Ummmm....

    Thank heaven Corbin is our coach (And I never thought I'd say that).
    Burks has taken 17 shots all season, 4 of which were 3's. He's only played 10 minutes twice. Absolutely nothing can be concluded by his play this season.

    I know Burks gets a lot of hype for being able to get to the rim, but didn't he have an awful FG% around the rim his rookie season?

    Agree with earlier BS comment about why he's not playing. And Green, if all you do is look at Foye's shooting percentage then you are missing the full reality of what else Foye brings to the table and they are mostly negatives. In a way, he's like Big Al, good stats that do not result in a good outcome for the team. They are the type of players who make their teammates worse because they don't do the little things. Al, in this regard, is better than Foye, as he sometimes does make big plays. But it's their overall game that sucks away the life of the rest of the team.

    And because of the poor foresight of the coaching, similar to Jerry I might add, who also was not good at developing young players unless he took a special interest in them, like CJ who never panned out, you are ruining a guy who could be so much more than Foye could ever even imagine being.

    It was humerous, and sad to watch the Burks haters trash him for missing two shots in garbage time. If you noticed (and we know you didn't) he played hard on defense, and was not the horrible chucker you made him out to be in 4 mins.

    What he has stopped doing in his limited time is attack the rim. He's got to continue to do what he does best, and hope his effort on the defensive end is noticed.

    I agree.

    I found it funny that after the game numerous posters were saying that burks was being a chucker and playing hero ball.... he took 2 shots in 5 minutes, meanwhile murphy took 3 shots in 4 minutes, evans took 2 shots, and im not sure how many kanter and tinsley took.

    But ya 2 shots in five minutes is just horrible chucking lol.

    As a jazz fan I've never been so upset watching the jazz play. We are wasting burks as we let him rot on the bench and hope we have a 20 point lead with 5 minutes left in a game to let him pass the ball to Murphy and Evans!!

    For those who argue that Burks hasn't preformed in the minutes he has been given are just insane. How many times has Foye or tinsley just be chucking the ball and getting best on D, but Ty still sticks with them?? Burks should be given the same type of luxury if time really claims he needs to find time for Burks!!
