Utah Jazz point guard Trey Burke made his NBA debut on Wednesday night. The former Michigan star missed the first 12 games of the season with a finger injury. The Jazz won only one of those games, so they desperately need him back. That doesn’t mean they’re giving Burke a break when it comes to rookie hazing.
Before they took the court against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Jazz let Burke lead them onto the floor. Burke jogged out from the tunnel area and realized after a few seconds that none of his teammates were with him. Instead, they were all pointing and laughing.
Given all the stuff that has gone down with the Miami Dolphins recently, it’s nice to see that light-hearted hazing still exists. It’s not all bad.
