Hesitant. Lazy. Useless. Unintelligent. Moronic.
These make up a small sample of the plethora of adjectives I’ve used in describing Brandon Bass’ play this season. Hey, it falls within the job requirements of being founder, chairman and most vocal supporter of the Brandon Bass Hate Club.
You can now add “eating crow” to those responsibilities.
Over the first 62 games of the season, Bass averaged just 7.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 0.6 blocks over 26.8 minutes per game. He also shot 45.5 percent from the field, while posting an offensive rating of 99 and a defensive rating of 102.5.
But if you thought his numbers were the worst part, then you obviously hadn’t watched Bass on the court.
His gameplay consisted of standing around aimlessly, waiting for an open shot. With the ball, even the sight of his very own shadow would be enough to scare Bass into a pass. On the off chance he did drive it to the basket, the resulting play would feature enough pumps to supply a retro Reebok launch.
BEST OF MAXIM

This was just too good to wait until after the game to post.
Brandon Bass just demolished Brook Lopez with perhaps his best, most aggressive as a Celtic. Awesome dunk.

BOSTON — Brandon Bass has seldom had a play called for him in the NBA, and that is OK with him. The soft-spoken power forward usually has very little to say about himself or his team, whether after wins or losses, 20-point performances or forgettable duds, playoff games or preseason contests.

The Celtics Brandon Bass took some of the game’s frustration out on the rim and Nets center Brook Lopez.
Lopez certainly was not backed down as hard as some people were this season were ( i.e. Jason Terry), but he was backed down all the same.

The story leading up to the game was the return of Kevin Garnett, but the story of the game was the play of Brandon Bass.

LOOK OUT, young fella! Dunkers in the building!
You know how you were always taught to force your man middle? This is a great example of how that fails to work. Brandon Bass blows by Reggie Evans and into the lane, which generally isn’t a bad thing for the defense, but a late rotation by Brook Lopez, who looked as if he had no idea that Bass could dunk, results in Brook paying...

7:15: At halftime, the Celtics lead the Wizards, 56-52. Just more of the same. This game should be over by now. They just don't try. Keep watching.
8:23: The Celtics have won, 107-96. Finally, they play good against a losing team. These last few weeks have been very tough for this group of guys, so it's good to see them wake up. Brandon Bass had another great game today...
The Boston Celtics defeated the Washington Wizards 107 to 96 tonight at the TD Garden. Pierce and Garnett both returned to the lineup, which gave the entire team a nice boost. This win was a full team win, as 5 players scored in double figures and 3 more almost did. Flat-out the Wizards were no match for the Celtics talent. KG was sharp in his return to the court, but the leader...
