He looks like he has alot of potential. He appears to have a good shot also,
something they desperatly need!
Give him the minutes and give him the ball. Let him make his mistakes and let
him grow. This one is a keeper. If I were Derrick Favors or Enes Kanter I would
be thinking--"This kid could help make my career. I'm going to take
very good care of him."
Until he plays a top tier PG...and played well...then i will say he is
good...but the guys he went with against chicago...were slow...and would not
create pressure as the likes of Westbrook...Tony Parker...Chris Paul....etc....
Jazz still look lost evry time a team runs the pick and roll against them.
Burke is faster than the other PGs though so maybe he can cover those rolls a
bit better. With his quickness he looks like Denver's PG (Lawson?)
playing williams at PF is interesting. Give Ty some props for trying to shake
things up. Williams looks like a new player this year.
I'm fully aware it was only against Hinrich but I thought for a rookie his
defense was pretty good. In overtime he took that trey without a seconds
thought.Actually having somebody who wants the ball at the death
will help this team no end.
He appears confident which is something the rest of this team lacks. Regardless
of whether he made turnovers and dumb mistakes he appeared able to just move on
instead of hanging his head. That is half the battle. Whether he is correct
or not he believes he is the real deal. I am anxious for someone to look
unfazed and a bit cocky on this team of choir boys.I am impressed
with his ability to move his feet and stay in front of his man. He is not large
but mobility to stay in front of your man is a big part of defending well.
Defenders are at a distinct disadvantage in this league but I thought for as
green as he is he demonstrated admirable defense for the most part.One area of concern was at the end of the 1st quarter maybe???....the Jazz
gave him the ball and they went 1 and 4 down low out into the corners and Burke
had Mike James the 3rd string geriatric PG on him. Burke calls for a screen?
Are you kidding? You can't go by /beat a 32 year old 3rd string PG one on
This kid is the real deal. Although he looked like a rookie at certain points
throughout the game, overall he was calm, cool, and collected. I think the
future is bright with Trey leading the ship!
