However, one of the most exciting rookies in the league is the “Greek Freak,” Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. The lengthy, monster-handed youngster...
Of all the Jazz players, Alec Burks is the most likely one to have a highlight play. We have all grown to love the amazing layups that seemingly only he can pull off.

At his locker before the game, Gordon Hayward reflected back for a moment on the first 50 games of a season he called a "roller coaster of emotions."
"Obviously with the amount of losses it’s been a little more difficult to swallow some of the games. There definitely have been some tough learning experiences," the fourth-year swingman said. "There have...

"I just be myself," he said.
Monday night, that was more than good enough.
Burks, starting in place of the injured Gordon...
