Is Bayless a PG

I have read on this site numerous posts that JBay is not a PG. I thought I would do a little research comparing him to 1 of the most successful  PG's in Blazer history Terry Porter. What I found after the jump.

Rookie year TP 22 yrs. old JBay 20 yrs. old.

 2ND year per 36 min.

 TP

 13.9 PTS.  9.5 ASST.  3.5 TOV  .488 FG%  .217 3P%  .838 FT%

JBay

17.4 PTS   4.7 ASST.   2.6 TOV  .414 FG%  .315 3P%  .831FT%

 

 A couple things to consider TP's usage in year 2 was much higher starting in all 80 of his games played. Bayless only started 3 games and if memory serves all his starts were at the 2 also just an estimation on my part but Jerryd played at least 1/3 of his minutes this year at the 2. Jerryd will be 22 this year the same age as Terry was his rookie year. Now it's up to you can Bayless be our PG of the future?
