Utah Jazz: Got glass? Trey Burke says bank on it

Bank on it, says Jazz guard Trey Burke, who has developed the seemingly forgotten shot since he first started playing basketball.

Consider the opinions that players expressed in a Sports Illustrated story that was written in 1999:

• Grant Hill: "I don’t like the bank shot. I never really practiced it, so I’m not really comfortable with it."

At a glance

“Guys don’t make any shots anymore, let alone bank shots. Guys today just want to dunk and shoot three-pointers.”

— Larry Bird, Sports Illustrated, 1999

• Tim Hardaway: "The only angle I consider is straight in."

• Derek Harper: "It’s old school. It’s not glamorous, and today, if it’s not glamorous, it won’t work."

Don’t tell Burke.

"It’s something I’ll continue to do," he said.
