San Antonio Spurs' Aron Baynes didn't get much time on the court last season but when he did, he showed hustle, desire, and how much he can be an imposing figure in the paint.
He had a whirlwind rookie season and even was able to get to the NBA Finals in his first season. However, he also felt the sting of losing Game 6 to the Heat after coming so close to title No. 5 for San Antonio.
Baynes spent time in Austin with the Toros and with San Antonio last season as he continued to develop but he is willing to do what he has to do next season to carve out a niche for the team as he said when he was a guest on the "Morning Glory" show out in Australia.
From playing with the Spurs Summer League squad, the pulse of the team after losing Game 6 to the Heat in the NBA Finals, getting the starting nod against Dwight Howard in the playoffs, getting an earful from Gregg Popovich, and more, Aron opened up about his rookie season with the Spurs.
Hear what Baynes had to say including how Manu Ginobili is the most generous player on the team.
Seemed pretty clear they weren't terribly rattled after game 6 with the way the played in game 7. Some expected Heat to blow out Spurs in that game, and it was close to the end, Spurs had the chance to take it, didn't just roll over and let Miami slaughter them. There was still fight in most of the team that night.
