Trey Burke hype getting out of hand

I've seen comparisons to Iverson, Marbury, CP3 etc. This guy wont nearly be that good not even close to it. He is in possibly the weakest draft in history and isn't even a lock for the #1 pick, had any of those guys been in this draft coming out of college they'd have been the far up up and away #1 pick hands down, wake up this guy is a solid backup in the NBA. Had Burke came out in 2014 he might not even be a top 10 pick. Don't contradict yourselfs saying he will be this and that then go on and say he isn't a #1 pick tho, because if he had the talent level of the 3 HALL OF FAME PG's i mentioned it wouldn't be a question who is the #1 pick in 2013 it would be Trey Burke but he isn't even a lock for top 5 he may move down because some teams dont need him!

STOP THE HYPE

I'd be willing to bet he will

I'd be willing to bet he will start his rookie year and be a solid point guard in the NBA. I do agree that he is not on those three point guards' levels but he will be a solid NBA player nonetheless. I haven't seen him being compared to AI or Stephon so I'm not sure what you're talking about there, but I think he will be a poor man's CP3 because he's not quite the defender and not quite as quick as him.

I like the Mike Conley Jr

I like the Mike Conley Jr comparison. I'd say a mix between Kemba and Conley is a likely outcome.

I don't have a problem with

I don't have a problem with the Mike Conley Jr comparison. He's a better shooter than Conley Jr was at this point IMO.

I don't think Burke will be a superstar, but there's no doubt he can be on the same level as like a Conley Jr, Ty Lawson, etc.

I'm kind of stuck on the fact

I'm kind of stuck on the fact that you called "Starbury" a hall of famer... But on the subject of Burke I think he can have a jameer nelson type of career... A good pg. Of a contending team.

To be honest i didnt really

To be honest i didnt really think cp3 was going to be as good as he is now when he was coming out of wake. I figured he would be a starter but nba 1st team never struck my mind. Anything is possible

The draft is not an exact

The draft is not an exact science. We have no idea what Trey Burke can become. You have no idea how good Burke will or won't be OP. Chris Paul was the 4th overall pick. Deron Williams was ahead of him at #3. Marvin Williams and Bogut both went ahead of Paul and Williams. We do not know what players will become and all we can do is make educated guesses.

My bad Marbury isn't a HOF,

My bad Marbury isn't a HOF, but he had HOF TALENT! Burke isn't on that level never will he be, he's on that same level as DJ Augustin. Burke isn't overly fast nor quick and he's too small to be dominant in the league like some of you suggest he will be and basketballjunkie24 stop with that BS saying you didn't think CP3 would be as good as he would be today he was rated the BEST PG in one of the BEST HS CLASSES EVER, Paul was destined to be great, BURKE NOT SO MUCH!

YOU havent seen him compared

YOU havent seen him compared to IVERSON?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jh3rmXs4KE

There you go and go on his twitter page, somebody tweeted: Trey Burke the next Allen Iverson and Burke RETWEETED IT, he think he Iverson NOOOOOOO, Burke is a backup PG, Augustin was solid his first few years but became a backup, Burke isn't anywhere near as quick as conley so what do you think will happen to him?????

:Winning Big Ten Player of

:Winning Big Ten Player of the Year
:1st Team All American
:Winning the National Player of the Year
:Hitting Clutch Shots
:Leading your team to the Title Game

All adds to the Hype...Thats not bad for a player that was told by nba people that if he came out last year he would be a 2nd rounder..Burke returned to school and got so much better.....

It's the fans and certin media outlets that are overhyping him..Scouts and NBA people know he's no Isaiah Thomas or Magic..They're viewing at him as a guy that might blossom into a solid starter...And possibly become a star if he goes to the right situation.......

IDC what Trey Burke did or

IDC what Trey Burke did or won this year. Jimmer won NPOY he had MAJOR holes in his game but people were so blind they ignored it cause he averaged 30 and could shoot deep and had a nice handle and thought he was going to win ROTY in the NBA and all that and now they see he really aint that good, same will happen with Burke his speed, quickness lack of strength and height will be a HUGE problem for him just wait and see.Im not saying Burke will fall flat on his face because he wont he's good but he's nothing more than a solid backup wait and see.

Now your just hating

First of all no NBA scout thought Jimmer was going to be ROY so I dont know where your getting your info, he had the most questions about how he would be when he came out of college because of his lack of quickness and speed and because he was not a true pg who also did not have great speed. Trey plays with too much passion to be a backup, if you watch him he just plays like a mighty mouse kind of like Kyle Lowry. I like the Ty Lawson comparison another player that plays with a lot of passion and can stroke it from deep just like Burke.

How am I HATING? No some

How am I HATING? No some idiots on here thought Jimmer would possibly win ROY or be better than KEMBA when it was clear he would never do either but people on here are so hell bent on believing everything they see instead of really opening their eyes and seeing whats real! Jimmer never was going to be a big time player in the NBA like sooo many thought! Trey Burke will never be as good as Lawson! BURKE is small and not quick nor fast nor is he that strong, he can shoot, but will he be able to get those shots off? He isn't a great 1 on 1 breakdown player! You guys will be eating your words big time come April of next year!!!!!

He wont be as good as Kemba,

He wont be as good as Kemba, Kemba handle better, Kemba way quicker, faster and explosive, you dont know what you are talking about. Kemba is big time and will only continue to get better, Burke is going to make you and alot of other people look foolish.

They said that Kyrie doesn't

They said that Kyrie doesn't deserve to be 1st pick,so Kyrie become all star in 2nd season,so much about haters. Just give this kid a chance,he lead his tim to the finals,that's enough for me to give him a chance ;)

Kyrie was raw as hell to

Kyrie was raw as hell to those who watched him those 11 games he played at Duke he showed that #1 potential, people who didn't watch Duke are the only ones who thought Kyrie didn't deserve the #1 pick. Burke is nothing like KYRIE AT ALL!

The Hype and the Hate should

The Hype and the Hate should all stop on Burke. There is no doubt he's good and there's no doubt that his game and body are impossible to predict beyond that. He is a lot like Len in that I really have no idea whether he will translate well or not and neither do you.

You can reign down the negs if you want,

But I Have Never Seen a Better Point Guard Prospect Than Marbury at Georgia Tech.

Watching him then, he had skill, clutch, size, passion and to talk about a motor, can do attitude.

IMO

He reminds me more of Damon Stoudamire... good, not great. Has a chance to effective for a few years, just not HOF talent.

That's actually the best

That's actually the best comprison I have seen, somewhere between Damon Stoudamire at the top end and Jameer Nelson on the low end. That's a damn good prospect any way you look at it.

I agree that he would be a very mediocre #1 pick, but he should be able to start in the NBA, even in his rookie year, especially on a team like the Magic.

Only person to compare him to

Only person to compare him to Alen Iverson was Kirko Bangz and obviously that was wrong. Burke will be fine, if anything worry about McLemore..
