    Burks' benching brainstorming (BBB)

    Why all the riding of the pine? What is your best guess? Please explain.

    He's not even close to as good as Foye according to Corbin?
    He's close to deserving playing time over Foye but God damn, Foye is crucial to our success now and only right now matters?
    His work ethic blows?
    He's not learning our system or lack thereof?
    He's a hopper?
    It's Corbin's brilliant motivational techniques?
    He has an attitude?
    Something else?

    What say you?

    Corbin thinks that Foye is better, and we need to win now. He obviously believes that Burks doesn't need time to develop, and won't help us.

    The results on the court are mind boggling. Our record, our team chemistry, the play of the starters, etc. Foye has a nice 3 pt shot, and makes good passes.
    I fail to find any other reason he belongs on the court so much. I want to see Foye play, just not for 30 mins. He simply gives up too much on the defensive end.

    Foye is a better fit in Corbin's one-dimensional offense.

    I have to believe there is more to the story regarding Burks. He's had a reputation in the past for being cocky and arrogant. Has it gotten worse this season? Has he been pouting and whining? Is he unsupportive of his team mates? Did he mouth off to Corbin?

    The kid has a tremendous amount of talent. There's no reason he shouldn't be getting minutes. If the rumors regarding Burks being shipped out are true, then it must be due to his off court demeanor. I can't imagine the Jazz brass wanting to give up on him for any other reason.

    I'd say it's part bb IQ and part Ty being scared to death to lose. (playing not to lose)
    Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

    Foye is really good at shooting 3 pointers, which is our only good offense right now.

    Yep, coaches can be reluctant to make a move that might cost him some wins, even if they coach in Utah.
