Brandon Bass took a seat in the upper level of the Celtics practice facility to watch his new team on the court below. He had been traded from the Orlando Magic days earlier and was getting his first glimpse of the Celtics system in action. Bass was observing the X’s and O’s when he was handed a basketball.
“Someone brought me a ball from Rondo,” Bass recalled to CSNNE.com. “He threw a ball up to me just letting me know be ready, that he’s going to be getting me the ball. It made me feel more welcome knowing that my teammates were excited to have me. That was cool. He definitely makes it easier on me by finding me (on the court). It wasn’t hard for him to find me — he knew I liked my shot within a 15 to 17-foot range. It didn’t take long.”
