He's terrible.
Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

Remember last season when we were so giddy with excitement over how awesome the baby for bass deal was?

LOL

Granted baby went out this year(magic can't win without him) but wow baby was never this bad.....and this is how I remember bass and why he was always buried on done I ones bench or in some ones dog house.....last year was actually the aberration

I thought he was a trade chip the moment we signed him. Rumor on hoopshype is Millsap will be traded, love to somehow turn Bass into Millsap, Danny needs to be creative here.

How has our overall rebounding been without Sully? It seems like its been better whether its a coincidence or not.

I still think I prefer Bass to Baby. Bass at least plays his role whether he is succeeding or not. Baby just jacks up inefficient shots.

Bass has never really been a great rebounder I dont know why that would change now. I agree that Bass has played terrible this year. At least his effort and hustle has gone up a little bit over the past couple games. Still isnt showing in his production though. He has no value in a trade but Im still sending him out for the highest bidder.

Unfortunately with that contract, Bass isn't going anywhere.

Yeah I don't get the complaints about Bass or Green when it comes to rebounding. They have never been good at rebounding. So they either have never given effort in their career or more likely they are just not talented rebounders.

Its like pointing out Rondos free throw shooting every game, but worse.

I think Bass' terrible hands adds to his rebounding woes.  Rebounds just slip through his fingers.  He touches the ball, but can't keep hold of it.  It either slips through his fingers or someone takes it away. :-\  It's just like trying to throw a difficult pass to him, you should never do it because he's never going to catch it.

Davis was exactly this bad for us.

Bass's rebound rate this year: 11.1
Davis's rebound rate last year in BOS: 11.4

Bass TS% this year: .500
Davis TS% last year in BOS: .499

Bass's rebounding hasn't surprised me (it was just 11.5 last year), its his overall poor jump shooting. He was a 50% catch and shoot guy last year, this year I think he's under 40% or something close to that.

Yeah, its Bass's shooting that's been so shockingly bad compared to his career make rate.

Brandon Bass is my least concern right now. I'm way more worried by the fact that he doesn't have a legitimate backup.
