    Default Everything Jerryd Bayless

    I've been saying all year long..watch him play a full a game and see how good he is. The past three games the guy has produced, end of story! He might be the best 3-point shooter on the team. The guy is a legit future starting PG in the league...

    I'm not a hater by any means, but 3 decent games in a row does not make one a legit future starting PG in the league. Nor does a few good games mixed in with a few bad ones. A few years in the league with consistent inconsistencies may state he is not though. Either way time is running out. I'm happy with him as our backup for now though.

    a GM who makes any decisions based on a few games, gets fired!

    He can't run a team ... may get some good individual results, because he is a good scorer (and shooter, as you mentioned), but not a good floor general, or passer/playmaker.
    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

    Bayless made some very difficult shots tonight.

    I did not like the fact that many of the half court possessions ended with a contested shot with a few seconds left on the shot clock. Bayless does not see the cutters, especially the baseline cutters.

    I was surprised Byron Scott did not start Boobie at the 2 and have him put pressure on Bayless when bringing up the ball, and switch with Kyrie in the defensive zone. As much as I love Kyrie Irving and think he will be a great player, he can't (yet) play defense and has been lit up by many lesser point guards.

    Default So where are all the Bayless haters?

    Right HERE Baby!!

    The only reason I say keep him is because he can keep up with the younger and quicker guards. Jose simply can't keep up. But if we can find an ACTUAL point guard (that can keep up with the younger guards) I'm all for it.
