.. I am of course, referring to Brandon Bass.
When the guy is hitting his open elbow jumpers and doing his job, he's a solid (albeit overpaid) player.
But wow. When he starts getting "creative" (if you will) and tries putting moves on players off the dribble, it makes me sick to my stomach. Bass has the "deer in headlights" thing going on - any time he gets the ball in the post or wherever, he pauses for 2-3 seconds and thinks hard before he does anything. In that situation he probably turns it over more than he scores.
Watching the team struggle is one thing - watching Bass step outside his role to try to be come "that guy" during the struggles is insult added to injury.
Bass for Baby/Wafer was a good deal last year. No one had super high expectations for him and he played hard, impressing us all.
I think Danny tried getting a little too much of a good thing with Bass - giving him such an absurd contract. The pressure is too much for him, he's the definition of a role player.
We need to get rid of him and his salary. Would be miraculous if Danny could move him before the deadline tomorrow
