Trey Burke made his debut for the Utah Jazz last night, and it included a bit of rookie hazing from the rest of his teammates. As the Jazz were getting ready to take the floor, the rest of the team held up and let Burke run out of the tunnel by himself. After all the bullying and hazing scandals going on recently, it’s pretty refreshing to see a bit of harmless hazing.

At a league worst 1-12, there has not been much to be excited about so far this young season for Jazz fans. There is plenty of young talent to build around and get that record turned around as the season progresses, but without their first round draft pick Trey Burke healthy...
The Utah Jazz don’t have a whole lot to be happy about as of late. They’ve only managed one win all season thus far when they hosted the New Orleans Pelicans. There are glimpses of hope as the Jazz show signs of improvement, as well as injured players returning to true form. One of those players is Jeremy Evans, former Sprite Slam Dunk Contest champion. If you ask me...
There were only about 30 seconds left to go before the worst shooting night of his career would be over, and Utah Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward wanted to be the guy to inbound the ball, to try to find a teammate for a basket.
Richard Jefferson stopped him and called a play.
"I made him go to the paint and tried to get him another shot," Jefferson said.
Utah Jazz first-round pick Trey Burke was spotted on the sidelines discovering his tongue.

All hail Trey Burke! May all the inhabitants of the great Salt Lake City and all their respective wives rejoice! And… the Jazz are still atrocious. Poor Tyrone Corbin. He’s got to fiddle with Burke, Alec Burks, John Lucas III and now Diante Garrett at the point. Jerry Sloan got John Stockton. Then Deron Williams. It just ain’t fair! In yet another Jazz loss...
That game in the rocky mile-high air in Denver tonight just got a tad tougher for the Dallas Mavericks because they failed to take care of business Friday night against the Utah Jazz.
The Mavs were up 28 points on Utah in the second period and seemed to be in control. But the Jazz regrouped and inched to within five points late in the game before the Mavs held on for a 103-93 victory...
