Robinson isn't coming and Bayless' minutes will increase significantly next year. He will prove his value by being a strong contributor.
Just because you're a good perimeter defender doesn't make you tough. It did in the 90s and before but in this new era of NBA, it doesn't. No hand checking, no physical play really at all.
