Kevin Love on Jerryd Bayless "He has the ability and the chance to be a very good player in this league"

Tonight, the Toronto Raptors travel to Minnesota to face off against Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves.  Kevin Love was recently on Bill Simmons' podcast, ESPN's The BS Report earlier this week and Simmons asked Love who he thought is a guy in his generation that is going to break out , but hasn't yet.

Guess who was his first answer?

"I always felt like my guy, Jerryd Bayless who's now up in Toronto...I  felt like he has a chance to break out, cause he's the type of guy who that has the mentality that we all have...that they want to be great....they aren't going to take 'no' for an answer.  He has the ability and the chance to be a very good player in this league.
He just has a different type of demeanor to him that we...you know, our generation kind of all has. You know, he plays hard every single play. He's just not going to take 'No' for an answer ...to go out there and try and get the job done. So he's just waiting for the right opportunity and a chance to break out. I think, Jerryd's right up there with a lot of other guys in our class. He was right up there in high school, with the best players.  I think he's right there among others."
What do yo think? Will Bayless be a superstar?
