Q: What was the emotional low point of your NBA career? Trey Burke: I think last year in Washington. A lot of people will say this summer when I wasn’t picked up. When I started getting DNPs in Utah [in 2015-16] I could handle it. It was something new to me, but I could handle it. When it happened again in Washington [last season], it was like, OK, is there something that I’m not doing right? Maybe I gotta re-evaluate some things, and I did. Q: Did you think of packing it in at all? Trey Burke: No, no, I never thought about that. I did start losing love for the game, which was scary, because it never really happened.
Q: Your mindset now is what? Trey Burke: Being able to control my thoughts on the court. Q: How did you master that? Trey Burke: A lot of meditation. I’ve been meditating since high school. I started studying the mind more in high school, and it was a technique of meditation that I used to use before every game where I would get to a state of mind where I focus in on my breathing, and I take about 10, 15 minutes to clear my mind from any thoughts, and then I just close my eyes and I just focus on what I want to see in the game. Didn’t know if it was working at first, come to find out it was working ’cause I was playing better. I was more confident, more efficient. I try to go back to that place when I’m on the court and I’m about to tap into anger, to an emotion that I don’t want to express to the public. As well as prayer — prayer has helped me out a lot.
Jeff Hornacek said that lineup decisions are made by he and his coaching staff without influence from management. “All we ever talked about was get all these guys some minutes,” Hornacek said of of his conversations with management about dividing playing time among young players like Trey Burke, Frank Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay and others. Hornacek said the only directive from management was, “Play guys who are playing well, trying to find them all some minutes and get them experience and get them in games.” Hornacek recently inserted Trey Burke into the starting lineup in place of Emmanuel Mudiay.

And for all of Van Gundy’s misfires since taking over the Pistons in 2014, Bullock has been a diamond in the rough, averaging nearly 13 points per game as a starter. “It’s not easy,” Van Gundy said at Wednesday’s practice. “It’s really crazy. It goes to the point of opportunity. People just develop at different rates.” To make his point, Van Gundy pointed to the 2013-14 All-NBA Rookie first team, the year Bullock entered the league. That was a squad that consisted of Michael Carter-Williams, Trey Burke, Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee and Tim Hardaway Jr. “I think you’d take (some) other guys over those first-team rookies,” Van Gundy said. “It just shows that people are in a rush to judge you, and it doesn’t always work that way. Now we’re five years in and it’s a different group of guys you’d rather have.”
