His career is falling backwards. Brought in to be a bench sparkplug, a player who would score enough to make his big defensive weaknesses ignorable, Burke was suitably ineffective in this role that Jennings was brought in ahead of him at midseason. [Jennings then played far worse than he, but there we go.] Burke shot less threes and less free throws than ever, instead shooting quite a lot of pull-up twos. And while he is quite good at pull-up twos, a player who gives up so much defensively and who is not much threat as a playmaker for others cannot just do that alone. There is still time for Burke to establish himself in the NBA as a scoring type - the improvements in his jump shot are there to be seen - yet in being so exploitable defensively and in so often forcing the issue, the best shooting Burke is doing is shooting himself in the foot. [I am proud of this cheesy line.]
