In response to Fiercest34's comment:
It's also very obvious, check below.
Before big contract:
Bass - 12.5 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 47.9% FG
After big contract:
Bass - 7.7 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 45% FG
It's bull crap to say Doc is not allowing Bass to post up or Doc removed him from the low post. Bass has always been a jump shooter. He has never been a low post player.
Last season Bass was automatic from the perimeter. When he was left open, it was an automatic 2 points. This season he's missing a lot of open jumpers. That's why he's trying to do too much and ending up making a mistake.
like usual fierce, you are full of bland, useless, foamy rhetoric.
here is the truth of the matter- do you even read boston.com
do you even understand what the role of a #4 is? have you looked at bass' advanced stats for post up looks? he doesn't knock you over with delightful numbers, but the cancellation of his post game was NOT WARRANTED just by looking at his advanced stats.
how would you recommend a wayward bass re-train his shooting eye if he is not allowed, per ribbers' fiat / fatwah, to post up and draw a fould and get to the line?
this isn't the first time bass got a raise in his career... he went from rook contract to 3 million a year and only performed better. he's got work to do to make his game better and the POTENTIAL to pocket more than 6M/year (think paul milsap) if he takes his game to the next level.
blount is a non-compes-mentis comparison- blounty played a mere 20 games at a somewhat proficient level of "center" play on a HORRENDOUS team to "get his contract" and then went calvin booth on us. bass played decent an entire year and is not the sort of uncaring JUDAS that blount was.
in summary, you are so full of crap it's coming out your eye sockets fierce. once again, in an unprovoked manner, you step on your wang for all to see. bass HAS BEEN BANNED FROM THE POST BY DOC. read the article fuzznutz
