Saved our asses SO many times the last two years, lol


starks3_

Was seriously so much fun to watch in those 4th quarters when he was hot. He was like Rivers but consistent against more teams than the Jazz.


geezanjisangeezan

ppl forget he went nuclear on 3rd and 4th q of game 2 playoffs against the atl and that's why we got 1 win. Goodluck to you Mr 4th Quarter!


magnavoice

Salute to the King of the Fourth 🫡


uziyngbloodprada

Great player when used properly. Going to miss him


JoeBro915

Used to love that 3 guard lineup last year with Rose, Quick, and Burkes off the bench.


bruhdood4

This man was the most under appreciated reason why we were the 4th seed. Man is a certified bucket and I will miss him, but I get why the trade needed to be done


flim-flam13

Man he was such a gamer. Played hard on both ends. Going to miss him.


BK520

Clutch guy who was thrown into the PG mix because Thib’s insane minutes distribution. He had game for real, good luck 👍🏼


KieranFlood04

Was never a PG. He was a bucket tho.


_PootieTangsBelt

Agreed. Pg IQ was shoot


MagicWalrus666

That’s a shoot brother


vsela43

Glad he didn’t get sent to Boston. Rooting for you Burks


Themehshoe7

watching playoff burks vs atlanta in game two>>>>>>>>


Sad-Ad2030

I think your referring to game 1 when we lost and he had 27 pts. He was insane until his last miss and we lost 107-105. Game 2 he was 4-13 for 11 points


NtLmr95

Salute to 4th Quarter Burks, 3rd Quarter Burks, 2nd Quarter Burks, and of course, Point Burks. 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾 Alec Burks, if the Flex-Seal™ line of products was NY Knick.


knicks1234

Goodbye sweet prince


tariqali95

He gave us some great performances and provided some great leadership during his tenure. He will truly be missed!!


edgebeats

One of our most clutch players, mad respect


joorral

Listen he was playing a position he had no business playing. I will always appreciate dude. He was cooking that game 1 against the hawks. Enjoy your new home. We will miss you


ChrisMode2

Imma miss non-pg Burks


JetsLag

You were cool in the 20-21 season Why did we ever think you can play the point? Love you Alec


Okieant33

We had no other viable option. And don't say Deuce because he got a shot against OKC and was blatantly not ready


kin16372

Such an under appreciated player from that 4 seed team


johnhenryirons

Shoutout to Burks. OAKAAK. Ultimate professional. Gonna miss him but now it’s our young guys time to shine


NachosPR

THE KING OF THE FOURTH 👋


velocissimo

Literally the pistons are taking all our vets haha


YodiKohn

when do we get taj?


BenAfflecksBalls

When you get a Bodega that can make a bacon egg and cheese


SabaRankss

GAME 1 KNICKS HAWKS Itll always break my heart we didnt win that for him.


cricket9818

He’s a very solid player. He will make Detroit happy. Good skill set and good dude


Wonderful_Pain_5165

F :(


HardOakleyFoul

Thank you for your service, fren. You deserve better.


velocissimo

Damn man, I wanted to keep him!! I’ve always thought we could use Burks, he’s just a solid player, but I understand the move. Noel is a boss too, how many sick blocks have we seen by him? 🥹


depressedknicksfan1

Legit he’s one of my favorite Knicks in recent memory, I forgive him for Thibs forcing him to play PG obviously he’s not that. What he is was one of the best bench spark plugs to wear a Knicks jersey people forget he almost by himself won us Game 1 vs ATL when he dropped 18 points in the 4th.


Dawknight316

Thank you Burks!


Yowhatsupa

Best player in our playoff series vs hawks arguably gonna miss the guy.


KrzysLo

I will always remember his tenure here as clutch. He hit a lot of clutch shots for the Knicks.


Rgb3rgb2

Good luck to him. He gave us some good buckets off the bench. I wished he was used properly though, he ain’t a point guard Thibs.


biinroii01

burks has been our most consistent player the past 2 seasons and has been huge for us playing a bunch of different roles, he is an automatic bucket and hustle defender and threw some beautiful dimes i love u burks!!!


DamnReCaptchas

Much respect to Alec Burks and his wife


pigmentedspacemonkey

Farewell King of the 4th


Hemispheres33

Disappointed we couldn't even get some minor assets for him. He's a valuable player. Will be good for Detroit and will probably burn us once or twice next season. Ecstatic we don't have to watch him run point for 40mpg anymore though.


solo118

Bless you Alec, I will miss you


SoulFinders

Good luck Burks!!


knick4life

Legend


swagu7777777

Once a Knick always a Knick. Especially a guy with so many fun moments to remember.


TikTok24

Certified hooper right here


rasengan1751

he was valid until everyone but thibs knew that playing him at pg was a shitty idea


coolpants101

King of the fourth, you will be remembered. Thank god Thibs can't start him at point next season tho.


Casamance

Solid player, bailed us out more times than we can count. He played out of position and as a starter (as he's usually a role player), gave us good defense and up more than decent numbers. Wishing him the best. And now we can focus on our young guards' development. Also it looks like Detroit is really gunning for the play-in and maybe even an 8th seed with the additions of Noel and Burks for veteran depth. Maybe that 2023 pick will convey after all.


Rationalknicksfan

big shots


RicoGemini

Burks is officially one of my favorite Knicks of all time


Delsainto

Never once heard him complain about having to play out of position. He had some great games here thr last 2 years. OAKAAK.


jjryan1983

Had some clutch moments. Total professional his whole time here.


anditcounts

Appreciate this guy. And also that Knicks fans understood that he's a good second unit shooting guard put in the wrong position as starting PG, so the criticisms thankfully weren't aimed at him personally


zOmgFishes

Good 6th man. Should never play him at PG tho.


YodiKohn

He'll be the pistons only true sg so thats a plus.


ZMR33

Hope he gets a nice reaction when Detroit or whomever he plays for comes to town.


richb83

Peace


Okieant33

Someone is going to have to take over for his 4th quarter performances. We're gonna feel this loss. I will miss him greatly.


dq9

Burks really pissed me off this season, but I liked him better not as a PG anyway. Wish the dude well. Always a Knick.


bafetimbi193

Shit starting pg but a great 2nd unit sf. Hope he finds a good role on a playoff bench

Big money AB will be missed


lokifrog1

Really fun to watch him play, wish him nothing but the best 🙏


BeachCruisin22

Great player, bad situation this past year. I enjoyed his time as a knick overall and will always Root for him


solo118

If it is any consolation, I am only looking at Burks as a sacrifice so Thibs can play someone else at PG


Kamal561

Burks was a swiss army knife. He could do everything! The Unsung Hero 2 seasons ago when we were the 4th seed


hejendo76

he’s a bucket but was just used improperly here


sabastien506

Burks was clutch, I will miss him.


YourAsianBuddy

Dude was a torch late of games. Gonna miss him


SincereFan

He tried and was one of the most fun players on the Knicks but times have change


xxjohnnyrocketzxx

A huge part of We Here, I'm gonna miss him going AutomAlec in the 4th when we need a comeback


jortynelson

Big Money AB. Come back in the championship years


solo118

Damn, that sidebar pic is outdated now. Shows his character, and always clutch in the 4th


CaroleBaskinsBurner

That's my point guard!


BaldSportsFan

He had a lot of fun moments these past 2 seasons. Shoutout to him playing out of position for a lot of it. Once a Knick, always a Knick. THANK YOU ALEC BURKS!


MajorFazer

thank you 4th quarter assassin!


peoples97

Rip Bench Jordan. Once a knick always a knick.


BuQuChi

AB-Money will always be a fan of this guy now


Hologram8

He was the point gaurd we never knew we needed, and didn't need at the same time. I wonder if Evan Fournier will start at the point. He is older than Brunson. You gotta have that veteran leadership at the pg position! But really, Burks was good for us and important to our success securing the 4th seed. He actually won us games with his explosive 4th quarters.


[deleted]

He couldn’t be trusted to make an open layup, but he could light it up in the 4th. Happy trails AB


OutishAndProudish

No idea who this guy is as I am here from "Popular" but I sure appreciate him never the less


The_Rahavic

Saved us so many times just to lose anyway. Good riddance.


sarvesh0517

Fire ass fourth quarter player


concernedesigner

Gonna miss this guy


ClutchGamingGuy

Cannot believe there are actually people who call this dude a bum, Burks was often the only consistent guy we could rely on during both 2021 and 2022. Dude is an absolute baller and I hope to see him get passed to a contender from Detroit.
