    If that means discarding this fallacy that the vets are doing anything besides wasting everyone's time and moving forward with seeing what we've got with The Four (or whatever), then please. Let wins or losses come.

    This is really neither here nor there, but the reason the Jazz have talked about and tinkered with Burks as a "PG" is because he's the only perimeter player the Jazz have that can beat anyone off the dribble and get into the lane with any kind of regularity.

    Whatever you want to call him, he's a guard that can handle the ball and make things happen.

    The Jazz just had an off night on a back-to-back road game. Not a reason to panic. That said, the Jazz have to figure out what they're going to do with the roster if this team is going to have any continuity. If Burks and Favors had any opportunity to create some chemistry, that could be something special.

    Burks anf Favs running the PNR that would be a sick combo, athleticsim and speed... look out its the (favurks) train coming down the tracks.

    Baby step to warm into Tankology:

    https://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=cn9q82j

    Jazz get the top 14 protected pick from 76ers. Probably end up around 16-18 in the draft.

    I like that trade.... its a start at least. Upgrade the backup point guard position and get burks alot of minutes at the two. Sounds good!

    Is there anyone even worth tanking for in the draft this year? I havent seen anyone that really impresses yet. Last year would have been a good year to do it. Anthony Davis and Lillard would have been worth tanking for. And probably a few others.

    So the jazz tank, there is no way they can out tank Sacramento, Washington, Toronto, Now Erleans, Charlotte. So the Jazz end up with a 9-12 pick--whats that going to get them? A 22 minute a night bench player or a guy who can't get off the bench?

    Even if they beat the odds and end up with a top 3 pick, do you think that guy will play more than 15 minutes a night.

    agreed... tanking would benifit basically every oginization in the nba... except utah... even when we tank on accident and get a good playre he gets to sit on a bench like all the other rookies for a few years.. tanking is a failing idea... all aroubnd massive fail. the only plus is that intanking we might actually start winning by playing the best players, but it would be on accident.
