    "Air Jordan had a message for error-free rookie Trey Burke"

    And the message was…?

    Just noticing on the NBA Power Rankings that the Jazz have inched their way up from number 30 at the bottom to number 26 with Trey running the team. Lookin' gooooood!!!

    Forget that "don't play so well" meme. The Jazz have plenty of options next year (in picks, expiring contracts and cap room) even if they play winning ball for the rest of the season(a lot to expect but not impossible) - and already have more young talent with plenty of future upside than many NBA teams.

    They should - as they have for decades - keep on playing the Jazz brand of basketball that's kept a stable, successful franchise here - while many other teams have experienced turmoil, city moves (from much larger cities than here), unhappy locker rooms, empty stadiums, etc. The rest will sort itself out.

    And a winning 5 game road trip by later tonight would be a statement they continue to do so.

    Leave the swoons to the teams already filled with divas of questionable team committment and character. (I'm talking to you, two decades of the Knicks and Nets, the once Wizards, etc., etc. trying to buy or lottery their way to success.)

    The fact Burke is in the top 5 in assist to turnover ration in the entire NBA is a staggering statistic.

    PG is one of the toughest positions as a rookie. Turning the ball over is basically what NBA rookies do and even moreso as the PG given the amount of time the have the ball in their hands.

    Impressive to say the least.

    The other thing that I am thrilled about is the effect that Burke has had on Favors. Favors effort I think has doubled or tripled since Burke got here. Favors is altering shots everywhere and having a big impact on the game. He altered shots at the end of the Orlando game that prevented overtime and also at the end of the Charlotte game that likely impacted the outcome.

    Favors is also taking alot less bad shots since Burke got here. They look awesome together in the pick and roll when Favors dives to the basket. Not too many players want to step in front of Favors on that play. Its awesome how Burke helps Favors take take the shots he is supposed to.

    Solid foundation of players for the future.

    Its no time to gush sweet words about Corbin. Lets just say Burk is doing great.

    This kid is the main reason I back whatever Dennis Lindsey elects to do with this team....I'm not at all crazy about Corbin coaching these youngsters, but if Lindsey says that's best for now, I accept that.....His trade with Minnesota on draft night to obtain Burke was a brilliant move.
