UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: VERSATILE, SCORING TWO GUARD

 

Alec Burks is an electric two guard w/ slick handles – herky-jerky style is tough to sit on – like a knuckleballer, you think he’s going one way, then he shifts his entire body in the opposite direction for an inconceivable finish at the rim; pure scorer: Alec Burks is a problem when fully healthy; downhill runner – strength, speed & sharp cuts of a running back; formerly a non-shooter, Burks boasts a decent pull-up & outside J, though his arm still drops way too far after releasing; tough defender when pushed – it’s hard to earn a (low-key) defensive reputation when you’re always injured AND come off the bench but Alec’s an exception; signed w/ Warriors (2019) – Burks offers scoring + experience to Stever Kerr’s bench
