Isaiah Thomas: Jerryd Bayless Is A ‘Fake Tough Guy’ (Video)


Isaiah Thomas and Jerryd Bayless don’t really like each other, and it came to a head on Friday night.

Thomas and Bayless had an incident during the fourth quarter of the Celtics win over the Kings. Thomas ended up standing over top of Bayless after trying to block his shot.

Bayless shoved Thomas to move him, and it was on from there as both players had to be separated.

Both were assessed technical fouls for the incident. Thomas shared his scathing thoughts on Bayless after the game.

“I don’t like him,” Thomas said of his former AAU teammate. “End of story. He’s a fake tough guy.”

So where does all this animosity come from?

“He knows,” Thomas said.

And why doesn’t Thomas like Bayless?

“Because I don’t,” Thomas said. “That’s why.”

This can’t be the way Thomas wanted to celebrate his 25th birthday.

Sounds like female problems to me.
