When told of how back in November Baynes’ Spurs teammates joked about him being held out of practices in fear he would injure them, Ingles laughed and agreed Baynes is a strong player, but only because he’s trying to do his best. “It doesn’t surprise me at all,” said Ingles of Baynes being withheld from practices. “Yeah, there’s a few. He’s an aggressive guy. He obviously doesn’t do it on purpose, but the way he plays, he goes so hard, that sometimes he loses control of his body a little bit. It’s more him just going hard and trying to do the best he can, than actually trying to hurt somebody.” ProjectSpurs.com

As for the direction Australia’s basketball program is headed, Ingles says it’s looking even stronger with the incoming talent that will be coming in the future. “It’s getting stronger and stronger,” said Ingles. “We’ve got young guys playing over here (pointed to Exum at his locker) and then we have younger guys coming through in the next couple of years and what we’ve already got. I think this is the most (Australians) we have playing over here, which I think is seven guys playing over here. To add a few young guys to that who are already playing with Australia in Europe, it’s some exciting times for us.” ProjectSpurs.com
