The athletic leaper hooked up with roster hopeful Chris Quinn for one of the best alley-oop dunks of the preseason on Friday.
The 6-foot-6 second-year guard elicited oohs and aahs while goofing off above the rim after this morning’s shootaround.
Pardon my poor videography skills, but take a look at his final dunk — a soaring leap that included him bouncing the ball off the court, catching it and passing it between his legs en route to a windmill jam. (My bad angle prevented me from videoing him from the beginning.)
This dunk wasn’t quite as impressive as the one he did while Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin was being interviewed, either. Burks passed that one to himself off of the backboard.
“Young guys,” Corbin said, laughing after Burks’ first dunk. “They’re just young.”
Just like The Milkman used to do during his NBA playing days, right?
“No, no, no,” Corbin said, smiling. “They’re just young guys.”
