December 20, 2013 Updates

Before the Utah Jazz left for their annual pre-Christmas road trip, their 21-year-old point guard admitted he has briefly entertained the idea of the ROY award -- it's in the back of his mind somewhere -- but it hasn't made its way to the front. "I mean, it's a goal that I think about at times but it's not something that I'm really stressing over," he said. "I'm just trying to play my game. (With) those type of goals you usually put pressure on yourself to go out there and perform at a level you may mess up. That's just putting extra, unnecessary pressure on yourself."

For Hayward, it has been about seeing the floor and how teams are playing him. For Burke, it is about executing a new offense. And for Favors, it is more about the fundamentals of his game.

Trey Burke, the 9th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, made his professional debut on Wednesday night. As Burke ran onto the court, Richard Jefferson held back the rest of the Jazz and let the rookie go out on the court alone while his teammates laughed. Burke scored 11 points in 12 minutes on 8 shots, but the Jazz still lost to drop their record to 1-12. So the bad news is that Trey Burke got embarrassed and the Jazz still stink. The good news is that Burke looked like a capable young player and the Jazz currently have the best chance at winning the top pick in a loaded draft! The Big Lead
