Not really. Ben Golliver breaks down a dispute between whether Jerryd Bayless, in an interview with the Oregonian’s Jason Quick, indicated fellow point guards Steve Blake and Andre Miller in a disparaging manner, or if Bayless was simply referring to the playing time of other young guards throughout the league.
Maybe we’ll find out, maybe we won’t. Either way, nobody can really be surprised that Bayless is a little frustrated given the situation. Like I said in my Re-Thoughts of the Milwaukee loss, there are a number of issues Portland is dealing with, and rather than speculating and analyzing what is going on, it’s probably best just to give the topic a little space and see what the team can do with one day off.
Besides, we are bound for two months of speculation from here on out now that the Dec. 12 15 deadline for trading free agents has passed is about to pass. Let’s enjoy the (relative) quiet while we have it.
