Man, if that's Jerryd, he should not have shaved his head.
Btw, Memphis is playing Chicago.
lol check out Bayless' stats in the last two preseason games. First game against Real Madrid and second game against a Derrick Rose-less Bulls team. He averages 5.5 PPG, 1.5 RPG, 1.0 APG, and 1.5 TO in 21 MPG. He's shooting 25% FG and 0% from 3FG. Maybe it was a massively good thing we let him go...
the love for Bayless here the last couple years was dumbfounding
Funny how quickly his supporters have seemed to disappear.
And I'm not sure why you find it funny ... he's no longer with the Raptors, therefore the conversations concerning have died down. Makes perfect sense. Doesn't mean I, and those others who supported him, still don't wish the absolute best for the guy.
He loved Toronto, and he loved for playing for the Raps. I'll get behind anyone who Reps Toronto as hard as he did. Period.
And now people are of the mindset that John Lucas is any different? Please.

Memphis signed Jerryd Bayless to a reasonable contract and I expect he will give them solid value for the money. I would have been fine with the Raptors extending him at that price before they traded for Lowry. But with the acquisition of Lowry, there was no place left for Bayless as he is too good to be a third stringer.
From day 1, it seems Lucas will have a fairly solid role, more than just the 3rd string point guard. I really believe he is capable of being the back-up to Lowry. Although, two things Bayless and Lucas do have similar (Bayless more than Lucas), is their cases of tunnel vision.
