    Player Comparisons

    Ceiling: Kevin Martin
    Basement: Marquis Daniels
    Final Comparison: Eddie Jones

    The biggest weapon in Burks’ diverse offensive game is his ability to get to the free-throw line. Every part of his game helps him get there, the elusive dribble allows him to get around defenders. His burst and quickness put defenders in a bad position defensively and his size allows him to finish with contact creating more scoring opportunities. Combine all of those together and Burks is a foul drawing machine allowing him to score with ease and open the rest of his offensive game.
    Grade: 8
    Like a few others in this year’s draft, Burks has a great chance to be the best player in five years. As a freshman in college, he impressed and was considered a lock for the first round; his decision to come back allowed Burks to round out his game even more. During his sophomore year, he proved he is a dangerous scorer and can get buckets from anywhere on the court. If improving year-after-year is a trend, Burks will only get better and end up as a very good NBA player.
    Grade: 10
    Combined Score: 41 out of 50 possible points
    He has the complete package for a basketball player, while still showing he has a ton more untapped potential. Actually, Burks may wind up being the best player in this class. His combination of length, shooting, attacking mentality and niche for scoring is unmatched in this class.

    DIME goes on to say that Burks' best fit is with the utah Jazz and it's hard to deny that. Utah, who started 30-something Raja Bell at the 2 last year, desperately needs a younger option on the wing. If he slips past Milwaukee at #10, he could be a coup at #12.

    Honestly, I'm not sure why he isn't projected to go higher. I think when its all said and done, he'll bea Top 3 player from this draft class.

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
