I like Blake don't get me wrong, but statistics don't lie. And the fact is that Bayless established how he is going to play the game in the summer league and showed Portland precisely why he is the perfect match up for Brandon Roy.
Math doesn't lie. As Einstein, the most intelligent man who ever lived said, "God doesn't play dice." He should know. 'Cause he's smarter than you.
Look that fact of the matter is we have an emerging superstar on our team, how in the hell we got him for the bargain basement price of #11 slot in the draft is beyond me. Pritchard worked some kind of crazy Voodoo on the league. That man is a prophet.
Regardless of my deitization of Pritchard the fact remains that not playing Bayless would be akin to Dunleavy not playing Jermaine O'neill when Sabonis was practically crawling up and down the court with a pint of vodka in one hand and a cigarette in the other.
I kid Sabonis because I love, but Dunleavy made two serious errors which probably cost us a championship. Not playing O'neill. And not knowing when to call a time-out. That and his crazy comb-over. You can see that thing from space.
But I digress.
Fact is Bayless is the perfect 1 to Roy's 2. He can dribble the ball upcourt. He can shutdown the opposing PG and keep them off Roy's back so that they have less chance of double teaming him. And he keeps the pressure off Roy for scoring. So he can't really run a half-court offense...THAT IS WHAT ROY IS FOR. Who else do you want running the offense? Einstein? He had a terrible crossover.
And with Rudy and Blake coming off the bench and Sergio in a pinch. What more could you ask for?
So, in conclusion, math doesn't lie, Einstein doesn't lie, and Dunleavy had a terrible comb-over.
