    Um why do we need a Raptors watch thread? We don't need to worry about the outcome of their season. Should have just called this the Bayless watch thread. Or the Baywatchless thread. ha ha
    doh!
    I am a fan of comcast and the blazers making deals that keep screwing us over!! woot!

    I wasn't much of a fan of Jerryd Bayless, and the Raptors are too boring to watch.  Have fun though.

    Bayless had a great game in hi debut with the Raptors tonight

    BOX SCORE

    15 minutes, 13 pts, 3-3 3-point, 2 rebs, 2 assts

    I just wish he'd get more than a quarter's playing time, because he'd really flourish in my opinion.

    Well perhaps if we gave him some more minutes down here, Nate could of seen how good he was, but that is not this Franchises Motif.

    Raptors have won 4 in a row, and have a bench that can score with the additions of Bayless and Peja. Toronto fans are gonna freak out when they see how good Bayless is. Tonight was just a little sample. They have an Eastern playoff team for sure now.

    Well Tom, my thinking was the The Official Hornets watch thread was about Bayless. But since he's a Raptor now, obviously we needed a new official watch thread for Jerryd Bayless, hence the Raptors.

    Carlesimo a Bayless believer

    Last Updated: November 28, 2010 1:47pm

    When the Raptors acquired Jerryd Bayless from the New Orleans Hornets last week, one of the happiest people on the team’s staff was assistant coach P.J. Carlesimo.

    Carlesimo and Bayless have a history.

    When Carlesimo was coaching the Oklahoma City Thunder, the team worked out a number of top prospects prior to selecting Russell Westbrook with the fourth selection of the 2008 draft.

    While Westbrook has emerged as one of the top young players in the entire league – he went off for a career-best 43 points on Friday and is averaging almost 24 points a game – Carlesimo says the Thunder thought long and hard about taking Bayless – who fell to 11th in the draft - instead.

    “We liked him then. He was very high on our list,” Carlesimo said after Raptors practice on Saturday.

    “It wasn’t a courtesy workout, we really agonized over that whole decision. I was impressed with him then.”

    Carlesimo said Bayless still has a bright future.

    “I think he’s established himself as a credible player right now and he’s still very young. He’s only going to get better.”

    Bayless hasn’t had the same opportunities to show what he can do and might not have the ceiling of players like Westbrook, No. 3 overall pick O.J. Mayo, No. 5 Kevin Love or No. 7 Eric Gordon, but he is a good fit with the Raptors.

    “The thing I like about him is he plays both ends of the floor,” Carlesimo continued.

    “He can guard people, particularly quicker people and he’s not afraid to take the ball to the basket, so he kind of brings some other dimensions too. It’s a good complement to what we have already.”

    Bayless has picked things up quickly in Toronto. Though he is not yet ready to fully run the offence, he is getting increasingly comfortable with the playbook and has had a positive impact, averaging 10 points, three rebounds and three assists in two games.

    Bayless off the bench had 16pts, 6 brds, 5 asts, 3 hacks, and splashed a couple 3's in a big Raptor win over Washington tonight.

    It reminds me of another bad decision portland made, a few years ago, with that one guy, you know the dude in the Hanes Commercials?

    Jerryd Bayless racked up a monster game starting at point guard as the Raptors beat the Pistons on Saturday.

    Bayless - 31pts, 10-12ft, 5rbs, 7ast
    oooohh, that was NASTY!

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
