Bobby Baylor is an eleven-year veteran and one of the faces of the Alaska Arctics franchise. He is mainly known to be calm and collective towards his teammates and is a respected leader in the locker room. He takes pride in being an Artic and he feels the entire state has a strong place in his heart ever since the day he was drafted in 2004. His strongest desire is to bring Alaska their first ever championship in franchise history.

Part of one of the few storied sibling tandems in the FBA now, Baylor was extremely adamant in convincing the Arctics upper management to bring in his little brother Marcus 4 years after Bobby joined the team. So adament, in fact, that he threatened to walk from the team if his bro didn't get picked by the Arctics in the 2008-2009 draft. Luckily for the Arctics, Bobby's baby brother could ball, so it wasn't too difficult a decision. They even have jersey numbers that are reversed of the other's number. Bobby's is 42, Marcus's is 24.

In 2015 when Marcus announced his retirement, Bobby was told the night of the Arctics elimination. When asked about his little brother, he admitted that he was upset when his brother told him that he was leaving the court for good, but after a few days he understood his reasons for his retirement.

"The shadow was too big to overcome for him," He said in an FSPN interview."It's tough to live up to standards around this league, and it was too much for him to handle. He knew after his contract is up, no one was gong to take the time to give him a look. Now he has opportunity to be a successful Baylor in a different way, and I support him fully."
