Isaiah Thomas calls Jerryd Bayless 'fake tough guy' (Video)

There appears to be no love lost between Sacramento Kings point guard Isaiah Thomas and Boston Celtics guard Jerryd Bayless.

Thomas and his Kings were clobbered by the Celtics on Friday night and in the process, Bayless could be seen mouthing off to the Kings bench and trolling Sacramento after a block on the defensive end.

That didn’t sit well with the former Washington Huskie, who called Bayless a ‘fake tough guy’ after the game.

The two nearly came to blows during the final minutes of the game when Thomas, standing over Bayless, was pushed out of the way.


Thomas had this to say after the game:

“I don’t like him. End of story. He’s a fake tough guy.”

Short and sweet.

Ironically enough, it was DeMarcus Cousins who separated the two, picking Thomas up and carrying him away from the potential scuffle.

Bayless has yet to make his thoughts on the pint-sized Thomas known, though, I have a feeling that may be coming in the near future.
