    He should be playing shooting guard. When Hay comes back he and Hay should be sharing ball-handle-N responsibilities. I don't care what position Burks plays really, as long as he gets time on the court over on-the-verge-of-retirement vets, though when Hayward comes back he's got a track record of screwing Burks, or Demarre, for someone who doesn't help the team win now, and doesn't matter in the future, but whom he feels some odd obligation to give minutes to.

    He's played well at the 1 even though he isn't your prototype PG. He can get our team into the offense just fine.
    You have some idiots on here who are saying he's an average ball-handler, blah blah blah. The fact is he's
    played just as good since Mo went down, as the vet PGs. So if Burks is an average ball handler, over dribbler what
    is their excuse?
    All of this while he was tied down to the bench for most of the season, and thrust into his secondary position. All things considered
    he's played very well for the situation he's been given.
    1.He is absolutely an average ball handler

    2. Their excuse is they both should probably be retired right now

    3. He has played well recently lets hope it continues

    is he an average ball handler for a PG, or an average ball handler for a oversized pg? the first one i can agree with, 2nd one not so much. like i said before its apples and oranges
    You're clueless. Burks' ball-handling is average AT BEST for any guard in this league. And your earlier post about coaching ball-handling shows just how clueless you are. Burks isn't 10 years old. He either has ball-handling skills by this point or he doesn't. Sure, he can tighten up his handle some and work on it but for the most part, if it's going to get better, it's going to be very marginally better.

    And your comparison of him to Westbrook who has A+ athleticism is laughable.

    Burks is not a point guard and trying to groom him into one is counterproductive. Sure, let him handle it here and there but NO CHANCE he is a point guard.

    Besides having no feel for the position after an entire career of being a scorer, when he has tried playing point this season it's obvious he isn't skilled enough handling the ball to play at the different tempos a good PG plays at. The best PGs dictate and play at whatever tempo they please, the poor ones get sped up easily. It's not his fault he can't do it, it's Ty the buffoon's for thinking he can develop him into one.

    Burks has a solid future as a slasher and two-guard in the league. Lets let him grow into it by getting Marvin and Foye out of the rotation or, preferably, out of town! That way we can just rotate Hayward, Carroll and Burks on the wings.

    Get rid of our best defender and best shooter? Good call.
