JMV interviewed Burke after today's victory.
Points touched on:
-Harrison-Came in in great shape. Was a lot more patient and very strong. On the many technicals he received: He said many were just overly emphatic dunks, joking "anyone who knows David knows he's never done a chin-up in life."
-Artest-played withing the team framework. Enthusiastic about helping other guys hoping to make teams. Always in great shape.
-Bogut/John Edwards altercation: grew out of Harrisons domination, but apparently Edwards added insult to injury by continuing to score on Bogut as well. Still Burke thought it was a quick hook
-On the rest of the squad, he mentioned Mo Carter and Snap. Said guys played for the win in last game intead of just everyone looking to pad stats. Felt that every player that was in camp got a chance to play a lot and show what they can do.
-Seemed sceptical on Chris Thomas
-On the Subject of Chuck Person: he can still stroke it from the bench area,no problem.
-Asked if film prep was difficult said he absolutely loves it. Carlisle makes it easy with great organizational skills.
On JB: he'll be able to tell when training camp starts who is ready to go and who isn't did say he has been very diligent in his rehabilitation and was showed no signs of adverse symptoms after the one summer league game. But said knowingly, we've shown we can win with many different lineups.
