Trey Burke Apologizes to the Jazz Because Photos of His Penis Appeared on the Internet

Trey Burke, the Utah point guard last seen starring for the Michigan Wolverines in the 2013 NCAA Tournament – yeah, that’s how forgettable his rookie year was – apologized to fans and the Jazz front office this week after photos of his penis appeared on the internet.

Burke, 21, probably knows where the photos came from, unless he spends a lot of time showing his penis to lots of different women on the internet. Via the Salt Lake Tribune:

“Publicly, I want to first and foremost apologize to my family [and] apologize to the Miller family, as well as my teammates,” he said. “We already talked about it in the locker room. From this day forward, it won’t happen again. They were old pictures. They were meant to be kept private but they weren’t. So from this day forward my actions and my judgments will be much better.”

Burke averaged 12.8 ppg as a rookie for the terrible Jazz, and was named 1st team All-Rookie. His career got off to a rough start when he broke the index finger on his shooting hand last preseason. He shot 38 percent from the field in 70 games.

It’s not totally clear why Burke had to apologize for sending photos of himself to a woman. The larger issue is why the woman felt the need to leak them blow up his spot by posting them on social media.

No, we won’t link them, but they’re not hard to find.
