From the article: "Despite Portlandís best efforts to transition his game into that of a ďpure point guard,Ē Jerryd Bayless is a score-first guard who lacks a true NBA position. Bayless was drafted to be Portlandís point guard of the future, as Kevin Pritchard envisioned Bayless adding athleticism and an offensive counterbalance to all star Brandon Roy, who has the ball in his hands a lot. It didnít work out, and he transitioned into a change-of-pace role off the bench primarily and also got a few starts at the two guard position when Roy was down with various injuries."

He was asked this season in an interview if he considers himself a combo guard, and he looked insulted, then said emphatically that he was a PG. Plus he's a little small to play the 2.
