In response to CHEisCHE's comment:
No matter how hard Bass blocks out, he's just too short. Bass is somewhere between 6-7 and 6-8.
Not true, POWE has the same height - and a rookie then but he blocked the paint better than any 6-7. The truth, Bass not good enough....fools gold.
Oh, they won again by outside shooting....outrebounded by weak team by 15 more? ....how that happened? They will pay for this deficiency in mid season when every win counts.
Not true also.
The highest rebounding average Powe got in his career was the 4.9 rpg in 2009. His career average is 3.8 rpg.
Powe also never became a starter.
Bass has been starting for 2 seasons now.
While it's true that Bass is not good enough, he's not fool's gold, he's just not starter material.
