    great game.... but, i don't even see Alec on the bench?

    He needs minutes in the rotation (decrease Foye and Junkyard Dog's to make room for Burks)

    RIP Alec Burks. This win means nothing. That Dallas lineup is atrocious and they were playing the second of a back to back on the road. Kentucky could have won that game.

    Barring an injury there seems to be little hope much will change for Burks. He can work hard in the summer and play well when given an opportunity, but he couldn't control the team that drafted him. Sad.

    Im happy for the win. It does not mean nothing. It's a win.

    More Kanter and Favors.

    I was wondering if Burks was on the inactive list or something (until he got the last couple minutes of garbage time).

    Cut Tinsley, play Foye and Burks at the backup guard spots.

    I'd also like to see Milsap come off the bench and Favors start, but that's another topic.

    Come on you guys. Everybody that played went hard and we got the win. Burks will see time on the floor this year. Our team is DEEP, very deep. It's impossible to give everyone minutes every game and I'm sure this isn't a set rotation. At least everyone played their hearts out and out-muscled Dallas and got a win in the first game of the season. But eventually somebody needs to FREE ALEC BURKS

    I too would love to see Alex Burkes exonerated! But what crime did he commit:confused:?

    How about we let him make some free throws first before screaming for his release?

    Man, I was really down when I didn't see Burks play that much. I just didn't enjoy the win as much as I should have.

    I don't have as much of a problem with this as most of you do. The guys playing ahead of him (Foye/Carroll) tonight were playing good basketball. I would like to see him getting Tinsley's minutes, though.

    I'm a huge Burks fan, but sheesh, Foye played extremely well in the 2nd half. Though I do think he should get minutes over Carroll, but Carroll also provided energy.

    Burks will get his minutes, it's a long season.

    Not Foye, Tinsley. That is the problem.

    Yeah, I can see that. I guess old habits, at least in terms of coaches wanting a traditional PG on the floor, are hard to break. Still, I find it hard to fault a coach too much about player rotations when a team wins a game by 20 points.

    Today's game doesn't matter. Only the future matters.

    I think the Jazz made a mistake signing Foye. If he were a true point guard, I could understand. But he's not as good as Burks and he's taking minutes away from Burks. Does the Jazz brass see this as most everyone on this board does. I wonder what their thinking is about keeping Burks back like this.

    I am physically upset right now 2 ****ing minutes, that is messed up!!

    This is complete bull ****!!!

    Burks deserve so much more than this!!

    He had as many minutes as Evans and our rookie, I'm so pissed I can't think of his name!!

    I've never been this upset after a Jazz win...

    I'm perfectly fine with the playing time Burks got. The Jazz won. Burks is a selfish chucker from everything I've ever seen.
