“I definitely think [I can be a franchise player],” Burke said. “It’s been my dream all my life, not just to get to the NBA, but make an impact in the NBA and be a strong name. Growing up, I watched Allen Iverson. Recently, I went out to Spokane to work out with John Stockton. Last year, I went to Chris Paul’s camp and got to pick his brain a little bit. I’ve studied these smaller guys like myself and I want to have a similar impact on the game. I definitely think it’s a good opportunity to come out here to the Utah Jazz and have the keys in my hands from day one.” HoopsWorld
