Hey, I just met you,

And this is crazy,

But your boss drafted me in the Lottery,

So, play me, maybe?

I guess Enes Kanter could say the same thing . . . check out the graph after the jump.

In his own draft class, Burks is #19th in playing time. Kanter was #21, but he DOES have great players ahead of him. Well, either we're the only SMART team, or we're really finding cool reasons not to play people. You remember all the confidence and how comfortable Kawhi Leonard looked in the playoffs? Swishing threes against us?

I remember. I also looked it up, he played 600 more minutes in the regular season than Alec Burks did. Btw, that's normal, because Kawhi only had Raja Bell in front of him right? Oh, no. That was us.

.

Welp.
