The problem with Bayless is his shot selection. I don't mind him taking a lot of shots, just not the long jumpers and 3's which he has proven to be bad at. Also he needs to be a bit smarter with his dribble penetration. Sometimes he's out of control or gets stuck too deep with nowhere to go. (how many sexual innuendos in those last couple sentences?)
I like Baylis because of the foot speed and potential which is both a blessing and a curse.
He is admittedly one of those 1-2 tweeners.
If we had a really talented young 1 Balylis would serve off the bench as 6th man ideally - change of pace guy - and could rotate through the 1 and 2 positions over 28 minutes without any let down ....
...assuming he gets his shot selection maturity
and reaches his potential (i.e. a midling 1st rounder as a solid NBA player)
