bayless isn't a great defensive player, don't why the media thoguht he was, the trail blazers traded because of his issues with defense and lack of basketball i.q on offense,

you could argue ben uzoh has been better in his small stint with the rpators polishing it off with a tripple double, not about scoring at pg, its about finding the open guy and defending your position which uzoh did well

not saying i would go with uzoh, but just pointing out how uzoh looked better than bayless, so i'm curious to see a more well rounded pg with speed and defense plus scorign ability can do with the raptors

Uzoh was inconsistent when he was here and Bayless defense is better then Jose. To say Uzoh is better than Bayless is just a little crazy imo, i'm no big Bayless fan but he's not as bad as some exaggerate here. When healthy this season i found him pretty impressive especially when starting. Do i think he's a starter, no......but he's a pretty good backup and his shooting has improved considerably. And Uzoh's triple double vs NJ was a joke.
