If I could change one thing about this Jazz season, it would be keeping point guard Trey Burke's finger from being broken in mid-October.
Who knows how a healthy Burke may have changed the dynamic of this season? If the Jazz, now 7-21, had started any better than 1-11 and they almost certainly would have with Burke then many fans' goal of them having the worst record in the NBA may not have come into play.
That narrative has become too much of a focus in Jazzland. Sure, the fascination with Jabari Parker becomes more justified with every performance he delivers for Duke. But the reality is there's no guarantee far from it, actually of the team with the worst record winning the lottery and getting the No. 1 pick. Conversely, the Jazz could have, say, the seventh-worst record, and still move up far enough in the lottery to draft a really good player, maybe even Parker or Andrew Wiggins.
