I hope Burke, Burks, Gobert and Evans get all the playing time they can handle, Evans needs to get playing time and shoot as much as he can from the outside, if he can gain confidence and become consistent with his outside shot , he could see a lot more playing time this yr.

I watched a lot of the summer league games last year, and Michael Stockton looked solid. I won't be surprised if he doesn't make the Jazz squad, but he has a shot. Most important is for Burke and Gobert to play lots and learn the plays a bit. Of course, the players that will be cutting to the basket and setting picks and running on the wings will be different for the most part than who the rookies will play with in training camp but it all helps. Good to see Evans and Burks will be there, too. Burks made the summer league's all-star team last year, if I remember right.

Good organization breeds success.

They should give Stockton a shot. I like his game. He looks like he wants to play and he doesn't back down from anyone. I like the start over philosophy. The Jazz were never going anywhere with the team they had last year.

1 for 12 shooting. That may well be the jazz record after 12 games. Lindsey must be trying to get the first pick like the spurts did twice. How will the mob react.
