Jerryd Bayless and Johnny O’Bryant of the Milwaukee Bucks wind down in a more unconventional manner: reading books. Bayless, a season veteran, and O’Bryant, a second-year pro, are constantly on the lookout for a good read. It isn’t unusual for them to go through a couple of books a months and, in Bayless’ case, even one a week. “It’s definitely a way to expand your mind,’’ Bayless said. “I like to read everything. I like autobiographies and biographies. It just depends.’’
Bayless has been an inveterate reader for much of his life. He said his fascination with books began in fourth grade, when he read one of his favorite books. “The book that sticks out with me when I was really young is ‘Where the Red Fern Grows,’ ” Bayless said of Wilson Rawls’ children’s novel that revolves around a boy who lives in the country with his family and wants hound dogs. “It’s a fiction story that I just thought was a good read.’’
Rookie forward Johnny O’Bryant returned to the team Monday after his fiancee gave birth to a baby girl, Amara, at a Chicago hospital earlier in the day . O’Bryant was warming up before Sunday’s matinee home game against Atlanta when he received the news his fiancee, Ariel Ward, was getting ready to give birth. So he hustled to Chicago and was on hand when the baby arrived around 3 a.m. Monday. “She told me I needed to come to the hospital,” O’Bryant said. “I got on the road and high-tailed it.”
