Why Starting Brandon Bass over Tyler Zeller Has Worked Out

When Brad Stevens announced that Brandon Bass would be starting over Tyler Zeller before the Blazers game, I was surprised. Sure, the starting five of Turner, Bradley, Crowder, Sullinger and Zeller had struggled, but would replacing Zeller with Bass fix that? Does it make sense to bench a 25-year-old center who has been steadily improving for a 29-year-old power forward who may not...

Blazers looking to deal but Thornton, Bass not atop the list

The rumors that Portland is seeking wing and big help were all but confirmed by GM Neil Olshey in a recent radio interview. Olshey ran down his wish list: a shooter who can pass and play smart defense. In other words, a player who is not currently on the market. The Oregonian looked at some potential trade targets, one of which was Brandon Bass: Contract status: $6.95 million...

Western Conference teams are no match for dime-droppin' Brandon Bass-led Celtics

OK, so there is a hint of sarcasm in the title.  But consider this: Before Thursday night the Celtics had lost 23 straight road games vs. Western Conference opponents.  Now they've won two in row.  The last time Boston got road victories on consecutive days against West teams was in Houston and Dallas on March 19-20, 2010.So what's changed?  Brad Stevens inserted Brandon Bass...

With Aldridge out, will Portland make a push for Brandon Bass?

The Portland Trailblazers, owners of the 3rd best record in the Western conference, learned yesterday that All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge will miss the next 6-8 weeks because of a thumb injury. I immediately wondered if Portland would have interest in Brandon Bass. There isn’t much traction on this front, but Grantland’s Zach Lowe did reference Bass in his latest column...

Brandon Bass doesn't wear his LeBron James shoes when he plays LeBron

Before yesterday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Brandon Bass laced up his LeBron James sneakers in typical "fashion." When asked how comfortable he is wearing a rival's shoe, Brandon was very clear about what he wears on days the Celtics play his favorite sneaker's namesake.As reported by Jay King of MassLive, Brandon said:"Anything else." I can understand the sentiment...

Report: Celtics’ Brandon Bass Drawing No Serious Trade Offers

Danny Ainge would not say Monday if the Boston Celtics were done making deals, but for now, at least, the team might be forced to take a trade hiatus. That’s because Brandon Bass, the veteran forward who seems like a natural to be the next to go in the Celtics’ garage sale, “has yet to attract any serious offers,” Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald...

Your Morning Dump… Where there’s not a lot of love for Brandon Bass

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I knew that where we are now was a possibility when we came into this year,” Ainge said. “But I was hopeful last summer that we could acquire some more guys and build a more veteran-like team that was...
