No homo, but his wrist must be super strong. He snaps off 25 footers with ease.
As far as potential goes I think he is really underrated. Like his ceiling is alot higher than what most people think imo. Obviously CP3 is really high but I do think he can be an all star caliber player. Someone in the tier of a Tony Parker. Not elite but rly good.
Tony Parker's not elite?
Is he on the same level as CP3? Top tier of point guards? If you think so then ok but I personally don't. Lets just change Tony Parker to second tier how bout that lol
Tony Parker is so underrated and is IMO elite. Could argue he is a Top 2-3 PG and top 5-10 player in the whole league. CP3 is #1, but Parker is indeed elite.
He is elite.
IDK how you can look at a line of 20/8 on a 59 TS% on one of the best teams in the league and say he's not elite.
I knew I would get hammered for that lol the whole point is that Trey Burke, the guy of this whole topic, can be an all star caliber player in my eyes. I disagree with your guys definitions of elite though apparently bc to me elite is the best of the best. A franchise changing, perennial all star, put the team on your back, hall of fame type player. You can be top 5 at your position or have an amazing season but to me that doesn't make you elite. I don't put Parker on the same list as some of the best of all time point guards so IMO he isn't elite. Hope I clarified enough...
I'm not sure I see the all-star potential in Burke. He isn't as good at breaking people down off the dribble and getting into the lane as most top PGs. He has too many games where he just can't get in the lane effectively. I can see Burke as a top 20 starter in the league at PG, but I doubt he is ever quite Tony Parker-level. Parker is much quicker than Burke. Maybe I'm wrong, but, while I really like Burke and think he should be a top 5 pick, I don't think he has the potential to be a top tier NBA pg.
@siggy was the "no homo" necessary? Not trying to be self-righteous but you should consider getting rid of that phrase. I promise no one on this site is going to accuse you of being a homosexual.
In terms of the video I enjoy seeing how easily he gets up, I'm curious what his standing reach and wingspan are.
No it wasn't necessary, but I'd use it again. It's been part of my lexicon since like 98.
His wingspan is around 6'5 which makes up for his lack of height. Given his strength combined with his length, he plays bigger than his height.
Wow it's amazing how his jumper reminds me SO much of Stephon Marbury's jumper ..
Trey Burke is a beast!! and hes got NBA range.. Reminds me of Ray Felton, Mo Williams or Jarrett Jack.. Alotta People say CP3 tho
How isn't Parker considered on the same level as any PG in the NBA???
3x NBA CHAMP!!!
1X Finals MVP(ONLY ONE other PG currently in the League with this)
5X NBA ALLSTAR
Career averages of: 17,6,3
Playoff Averages of: 19,5,3
Only 30 yrs old
So severly underrated
Parker has always been underrated. But on to the forum topic about Burke. I really like his game to be honest I feel he is just a good basketball player and because he is not a great athlete like the top point guards of today. But I really think he can be a all star someday but I don't think a perennial all star. When I watch him I actually see some kyrie Irving in his game. Both have a very crafty handle, kyries is better but Burke to me has the best handles in the draft easy. Both have great range on their jumper and no problem hitting from deep. Both are also very clutch players and have a good tear drop which will be essential for Burke. Just saying there are a lot of similarities. I don't think that he will be as good as kyrie but a poor mans kyrie would be really good for a lot of teams
I agree with Fast&Furious, Parker is elite, he can break anyone down and get into the lane as good if not better than anyone. He scores in the paint better than almost any point guard there is.
