Michigan '13 NBA Reunion

Michigan '13 NBA Reunion

Trey Burkes first game back in the league for the Knicks tonight came against Nik Stauskus, Caris Levert and the Nets. Tim Hardaway Jr is also back, but sat because NBA. NYK won 119-104. Trey scored 5 in 8 minutes, Nik was scoreless in 7 min, and Caris had 20 and 7 rebs in 30 min. He in particular has really been playing well. Will be fun to keep watching both teams and see if those guys still have the same chemistry together.

This Day in Michigan History

This Day in Michigan History

Submitted by Blue and Joe on March 3rd, 2015 at 1:09 PM

Thanks to Timehop and my incessant tweeting during Michigan sporting events I was reminded of what happened on March 3rd, 2013.

Michigan 58 - Michigan State 57

It was a great day indeed, thanks to two Burke steals (which he called ahead of time) at the end of the game.

Michigan forward Mitch McGary said Appling used a spin move earlier in the game, which Michigan won 58-57, and Burke told him exactly how he was going to swipe the ball.
 
"He told me whenever (Appling) spins, he puts it in his right hand and it's an easy steal," McGary said. "Tim and I were just hoping he didn't hang on the rim."
I miss Trey Burke.
 
Here's the video. Enjoy.
 

Trey Burke sued despite apology

Trey Burke sued despite apology

Submitted by PeterKlima on July 31st, 2014 at 10:01 AM

Trey Burke has been named in a Macomb County lawsuit seeking over $25,000 in damages (minimum that has to be mentioned in the complaint).

This arises out of unfortunate joking about the guy on Twitter, that Shaq mocked, who turned out to have a rare disease.  Shaq and Waka Flocka were also named as defendants.  It is unknown if any of the other, non-wealthy, re-twetters were also named, but for some reason I doubt it.

While I feel bad for the guy, I do not think the actions were intended to be hostile AND all three apologized to him privately and publicly.  In my opinion, this should not be a viable cause of action.

The defendants are wealthy and they made a social media mistake. 

Law firms are businesses that need money and publicity.

If you have strong feeling about this and you are a recoverable potential party, please watch your comments.

Trey Burke & 2014 NBA Draft

Trey Burke & 2014 NBA Draft

Submitted by Marley Nowell on May 20th, 2014 at 9:23 PM

Utah has won the #5 Pick in the NBA Draft.  This puts them in an interesting position based on the talent available.  The first tier of talent goes 4-deep (Wiggans/Parker/Embid/Exum) and the second tier as I see it is Marcus Smart and Julius Randle.  Obviously Smart would be bad for Burke by taking his starting position, or it could be good if he is traded to a better team.  They could also take Randle and pair him with Derrick Favors and Enes Canter in the frontcourt, though it would be difficult to play all three at the same time.  Between PF/C there are 96 minutes available so all could still play 30+ minutes.  Another out of the box options would be to trade the pick, possibly to the Phoenix Suns who have picks 14, 18, and 27.  That would put them in range for when the SG/SF players that fit their roster needs are projected.  Those14-18 range could see James Young, Rodney Hood, Zach Levine, and of course our old friend Nik Stauskas be drafted.  Also this gives Utah extra picks in what is considered a deep draft.  Whatever happens hopefully Trey Burke's situation improves.

Trey Burke recognized as Western Conference Rookie of the Month (3rd-time)

SALT LAKE CITY (April 18, 2014) – The NBA announced today that Utah Jazz guard Trey Burke has been named the Western Conference Rookie of the Month for games played during the month of April, marking the third month he has won the award.

 

Having already been recognized as the recipient in both December and January, Burke (6-1, 190, Michigan) became the first player in franchise history to win multiple Rookie of the Month awards. Karl Malone was named NBA Rookie of the Month in December 1985, the only previous monthly rookie honor for the Jazz. The award, which has been given monthly since the 1981-82 season, was originally the NBA Rookie of the Month before splitting into Eastern and Western Conference Rookies of the Month in 2001-02.

 

It's difficult to not speculate whether Trey's increasingly well-rounded play would be getting more hype if he was playing in a larger TV market.  It seems most pundits have already handed the ROY award to Michael Carter-Williams, which is understandable considering MCW stats.  That said, I'm curious to see some of the (unbiased /s) arguments on this board as to why Trey may be more deserving.
