I think this is worth watching. Left an impression on me.
I can't remember the last time I've seen this kind of emotional post game reaction from the Raptors. Bayless is visibly upset by the loss, it's not just another team loss, he is taking it personally. Impressive for the guy who's only been here 11 games.
I wouldn't have thought anyone would take this loss so hard. They are a young team and were missing 4 guys, 3 of which are starters. The Chicago Bulls are a talented team playing good basketball. You could see this one coming.
Bayless doesn't care to make any excuses though. I was most impressed with how personally he takes the loss. "I don't like it. I'm not used to it... I'm not going to stand for it." He calls out his teammates, saying "We got a long ways to go" calling the loss "embarassing". He says of his team "We got to start practicing better, we just got to get better." "It's bad right now."
I would tell the guy to cut himself some slack considering the circumstances. Though, it is exciting to see this kind of passion from someone on our team. He seems to care about this team, and he seems to want to lead it. You can tell with the way he plays, he is a passionate guy, and that is exactly what the team needs.
With him and Reggie, The Raps may actually have a personality.
