    Burks as horrible on defense as Foye

    https://www.basketball-reference.com...burksal01.html

    And that's playing against scrubs where Foye is going against top flight talent night in and night out. Maybe he should stop gambling on defense so much, I don't know. Maybe he just needs more time to figure it out.

    I've been saying it long before the stats could prove it.

    Burks is terrible on defense. He tries to get up and play too close to the guy he is guarding, which doesnt help him stay in front of his guy, and makes him committ fouls easily. He looks weak playing defense too. I cringe watching him play defense, because like everyone else, I want him to be really good. His offense is good enough he should play though and learn how to play defense.

    He'll learn. The fact that he is playing close shows his aggressiveness, but I think he needs to balance that with watching film and learning the tendencies of the people he is guarding.

    Bulls are a pretty damn good defensive team bro.
