    Doesn't that make us happy? We're not winning games because of vets; BECAUSE OF BURKS.

    BURKS IS A BALLER. HE'S A GODDAMN SON OF A BITCH OUT THERE HAVE WE EVER HAD A PLAYER WHO COULD GET TO THE RIM LIKE HIM

    Why aren't we happy about that?

    if he keeps this up, he would finish top 3 in 6th man award. i think crawford is running away with it though.

    Im happy. Extremely happy. His knack for making unbelievable shots AND getting the and 1 is both satisfying and intriguing. Does he have other aspects of his game to work. Absolutely. But he's improving in the right direction. Kid's a stud AND he plays with a chip on his shoulder...which I like.

    I only hope Lindsey realizes Burks is better than Hayward, and that resigning Burks is going to be more of a priority.

    Burks and Hayward = two completely different players.

    Yes. One's better, and one's worse.

    Nahh, different roles, different situations. It would be really nice to see Burks starting with Hayward to get a better idea at where both are.

    NOOO. All of our players suck, damnit...get with the program. And they suck because they don't get enough minutes...and if they suck after they get minutes, its cuz our FO is stupid and picks bad players. Besides all that, they cant help but suck, cuz our coach sucks.

    I've been incredibly happy to see Burks play well, and win us games. The dude is a straight up stud. I really wish he would start next to Hayward, really curious to see how they could play together. Either way Burks has really emerged as a great player on the Jazz. The FO should really REALLY think about forcing Corbins hand to start Burks over Jefferson. If I am Burks and I'm getting crappy minutes I'd be looking for a team that would start me, not have me as the 6th man

    But then that destroys the tank.
    Play Burks less, people are mad.
    Play Burks more, Jazz win more, people are mad.

    The guy has a sub-15 PER, a pedestrian TS%, is an okay role player on a bad team, scored a few against a Sixers team that looked D-League, yet this week we're seeing him compared to James Harden & Lebron James, & called a SOTY candidate.

    At least y'all have bought into your own bull ****. I guess.

    Burks is having similar season to Hayward's last year. Coming off the bench, occasionally starts, and doing very well. Is he better than Hayward? Too early to tell as both are young and things can still change. But he is having a better year in the role that he is playing vs Hayward in his role.

    FTA's are all that matters. Monta, Kevin, and Brandon want to say hello.

    Do you ever make any original posts or have any new ideas or is it just always this hackneyed shtick?
