    All of this height analysis at various positions is ridiculous, because this is a different game now days compared to yesterday. Give the rooks and young players all the minutes you can Ty at whatever position. Todays game in the NBA is more about nightly match-ups than regular positions and who starts or plays the most. Energy and effort is what we need guys every night, just do it and good luck!

    This is a great opportunity for Burks to get point guard game experience, and he is lucky to have Earl Watson to learn from. Some pre-draft comments on Burk's defensive play challenged not his ability but his focus on playing defense for a full game, and Watson never seems to waiver with his focus. Whether Alec plays point or shooting guard, the Jazz will always be hard to trap with him and Hayward on the floor at the same time. I would like to see Burks, Hayward, Howard, Milsap and Favors play one quarter together.

    Jody I thin you are a"little" off on the average height. Should be more like 5-8, 5-9 I would say. You have to like Burks attitude. Many years ago 6-6 was a center..
