Trey Burke, a lean cuisine of the floor, slicing and dicing the freshest ingredients to serve up some broken ankles. Where do I start with maybe the greatest back up (starter on most teams) signing for the 2019 season?
I don’t know, maybe that Trey Burke averaged 18.6 ppg complementing a remarkable 6.7 assists per game during the 2012-2013 season. Or maybe that he single handedly lead his team to winning a championship. But what if I also told you that he accomplished all of this at age 19.
Five star recruit Trey Burke led 3 two star recruits and 8 walk-ons to an unprecedented season with the Michigan Wolverines. Beating out power houses like Wisconsin and Penn State, Trey was able to win a BIG 10 Championship in what is regarded as the hardest conference. Many have said that the 2012-2013 season is the single reason why John Beilein was offered the Cleveland Cavaliers head coaching job.
Now, I am going to block out anything that happened from that time on because it is just unnecessary for what is about to unfold in the 2019 season for the 76ers. With all of this being said, Trey Burke is going to be a better version of what Fred VanVleet was for the Toronto Raptors and that’s simply a fact.
I’m not going to lie, before this signing I had zero hope in the Sixers beating the Bucks. But then came the answer in the form of Trey Burke. I, along with Vegas, have realized the impact that this reincarnation of Allen Iverson brings to the table. With the Sixers odds getting better as a result of Trey Burke’s move to Philly, I do not think there is any question that the Sixers will win the NBA finals.
