Via Text: Bayless Goes Off


In what I hope to be a semi-regular feature, I'll be texting players after road games to get their thoughts on their performance. Will kick it off with Jerryd Bayless, who responded to getting more playing time by turning in a 23 point, 3 rebound, 3 assist night against the Nets. Bayless also went a perfect 11-for-11 from the line. That's how Bayless do. Onto the text

6:53 PM
Me: This is casey back in portland. Congrats on the great game. Mad rhythm. What you think about your performance tonite?

7:31 PM
Bayless: Thanks. My teammates kept feeding me and i took advantage of the opportunities they made for me.

On of those opportunities? The Sprite Slam Dunk of the Night.

that is a cool idea, keep doing it. Maybe you could also try to get them to not use cliches (good luck).

Appreciate the work but given that texting is so slow for you both wouldn't your and his time be better served by just calling him?

Appreciate the work but given the speed it takes to text, you could call him for a short interview and post the auido or transcription of that.
