    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 one?

    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!
