Re: i guess we did almost have a trade...
Can't forget we got a year out of Jack in that trade to. He just performed over anyone's expectations and got a big offer. If we were able to keep him people'd be talking about how great a trade that was.
Just Rush vs. Bayless though, I don't know. I really haven't seen enough of Bayless to say either way. I still think once Rush is in a position with a coach that runs a traditional halfcourt set and has more scorers around him people'll see how valuable his skillset is. Larry Brown would've loved him.
