    i think i find it funny...cause at the end of last year...a lot of people are clamoring for trey burke...but im not going to be hard on him...and i'll give him a shot...summer league is where you would see the rookies that would stand out...but...donatas was a 20-10 player during summer league before...but where is he now?...i think we need to give trey a break and i am sure he is feeling the pressure as he said he wanted to start...and he'll be an all-star...i am sure he is assessing his performance each game

    For all of you doubters out there, please give Burke some breathing room and time. If any of you were around for when John Stockton was a rookie, you will remember that the Jazz were heavily debating whether or not he was a bust (and he was a backup). They weren't even positive after he was starting whether they should renew his contract. Now, I don't think that Burke will ever be what John Stockton is...but give him time my skeptical friends.

    I am so glad the Jazz drafted Neto as our point guard...Burke will be a bust!

    For the entire summer league games, our first round draft pick went 1 or 19 at the three point line.

    I took my seven year old son outside to our basketball court after the Jazz's loss to the Pacers today to shoot three's from the NBA line. He went 3 for 19 and he is only seven years old...has not played any recreation games as yet...and he is definatley not the National Player of the Year.

    Burke...three years...a bust...and gone.

    Sign Stockton as the back up...he is a play maker like his father and guess what, he can score when he needs to.
