    re: John Wicks--Burkes lack of playing time.

    Hayward can defend...that is why he is on the floor. Burkes can play some PG in a pinch but he can not orchestrate or direct an offense like Tinsley. I won't defend Tinsley's shooting but that is not his role either and he does not shoot alot but will when left open. Tinsley knows the sets and knows how to direct other players where to be and what to do.

    Burkes repeatedly got burned defensively in preseason and if you can't defend the scrubs you play in preseason then you will be sitting the bench in the regular season.

    Hayward and Foye are unquestionably better options ahead of Burkes. Burkes undoubtedly has a knack for driving and getting fouled but he does not get quite as many calls in the regular season as he did in preseason either.

    Veterans win games...its just a proven fact.


    Coaches play playere because they give them the best chance of winning. If that happens to coincide with fan-favorites then call yourself lucky but coaches would lose alot of games if fan favorites was the criteria for playing time.

    I, too, want to see Burks and Jeremy as well. But I'm sure they will get some minutes soon. They are fan favorites, fer shure!

    I'm so pleased to watch Mo do such an incredible job. He has already proven himself to be a terrific leader and will be very effective as a Co-Captain. I think the younger kids will respect him and take his guidance, making the Jazz a strong cohesive team.

    Go Jazzboys tonight!!!

    I can't believe Burks can't get any playing time. Wake up Corbin to the real world and play Burks. I'm not so sure Hayward and Tinsley are better.
