BBD can create. Bass cannot. Bass is consistent and a team player, BBD wants to play like Kobe Bryant.

Both teams got the player they want.

Glen doesn't even create as effectively as he seems to think he does. 

Both Bass and Davis are probably ideally suited to bench roles, but if I have to start a guy like that, I'll take the guy who knows his role and stays within it over the guy who wants to take 20 shots.

Bass is a better fit for Boston but he is not a better player.

Debatable. Bass is certainly a smarter player and that goes a long way in a debate such as this.

How do you figure he's a smarter player? Bass's "basketball iq" isn't on my list of postive attributes for him.

Yeah, I agree.  Bass is definitely not what I would consider a smart player.  I think Davis' BBIQ is significantly higher...which is what allows him to close the gap a bit on the significantly more talented Bass.

And I would say the same thing about Sully.

Both Bass/Davis share poor shot selection.

Davis has superior basketball IQ when it comes to seeing angles for drives/passes and defensive situations.

Bass however is a better perimeter defender on switches and is more a true PF than a PF/C like Davis. He's also a far superior jump shooter, which is massive for the C's.
