Sorry to see you go JB.
But things have gotten a little crowded here, your career may be better advanced in Memphis. Best of luck
Very disappointed to see Bayless leave as he was one of the players on the roster that still had potential to be a very good player while still producing in the present. Everyone was quick to jump on him being a chucker and no question he was overly aggressive but the kid can play. Goran got a huge contract this summer and his numbers as a starter where very close to the numbers Bayless put up when in the same situation. Only issue I has with Bayless was when he was looking over his shoulder after a mistake cause he knew he was on a short leash. When he knew he was going to get steady minutes the kid played really well. Great attitude, always brought it on the court, battled injuries, embraced the city and toughest part about him signing with the Grizzlies is you know it's a cheap contract. We need bargain contracts and one just slipped through BC's hands...
I think it's a bad move for him since he's probably not going to end up playing minutes that he really wanted, but he's only 23 so there should be plenty of time for his agent to get him a starting gig someday.
IMO, and i'm probably the only one here, i wouldve preferred keeping him over Jose, because of the age factor, and the aggressiveness that he brings to the game. He's a game changer and can put points on board pretty quick, good defender and does not shy away from taking big shots.
Hopefully, he doesnt burn the Raps for 30-40pts the next time he's in town, hehehe
Gonna miss him. The only raptor in recent memory to really enjoy his time in Toronto and expressed his desire to play here long term. Its hard to let players like these go; such a rarity in the nba.
We will only play them once at home, so there's no guarantee we'll see Bayless because:
(a) He might be injured, because that's what he does
(b) If the game is later in the season, he might be 3rd in the depth chart and get only garbage time
I'm so happy he is gone; he was a clown.
I'm still holding out hope that Colangelo signs Machado.
Leaving the most lucrative offer on the table and playing for some one else works for me too.
Which doesn't apply to Bayless in this case. Good for him, I like that he was able to move on somewhere else.
Ronald Tillery: Source confirms @ESPNSteinline report. Griz agree to sign Jerryd Bayless to contract that starts at $3 million. CA story coming... Twitter
I dont think he'll say anything to ruin his rep, but he might have some choice words since we know how passionate he is when it comes to his team.
I am hoping the Raptors keep Calderon or find a decent backup point guard because the thought of Ben Uzoh being the primary backup is kind of nauseating.
