Trey Burke understands the Utah Jazz will most likely be his team to run from the start, and the rookie point guard says he's ready for the responsibilities. "Absolutely. I love challenges and this is one of the biggest challenges of my life," Burke said. "I’ve prepared for this challenge. I’m definitely looking forward to going in there and making an impact right away." Burke feels pressure being the Jazz's starting point guard, but he also senses lowered expectations for the team from outsiders. "But with my mind set, I love to win, so I plan on winning," Burke said. "As bold as that sounds, I just plan on winning. I think it’s only pressure if you put the pressure on yourself. If I go out there trying to please the fans, trying please the coaching staff, rather than just playing my game, that’s where the pressure comes. But I think I’ll do just fine.
