Burks will be the X factor this year. I wanted the Jazz to draft him far before the draft. Give him the chance this year and he will be the difference..

Temecula, CA

Burks will be one of the X factors, and his growth as a defensive player will definitely boost the team's success this year. I see the Jazz having many more fast breaks this year, and Burks will be involved in a lot of them, due to his improving defensive ability and excellent rebounding skills. I think Kanter is the other X factor, since we already know or have a good idea that Hayward and Favors are on their way to possible future all-star selections.

no doubt Burks can come in and play the game the Jazz want him to but it would be nice to have a backup for him in case of injury and a back up that has played NBA ball.

I think the Jazz organization has short sheeted themselves this year.
