ok, but how? slightly better FG%, same outside shooter, better FT%, but less FTA's than davis PER MINUTE, used to be SAME (for this year) now LESS REBS per minute played than davis (davis 22.5 mins to bass's 31 mins per game) this year, don't conflate the stat comparision by conveniently ignoring that davis per min pts & REBS are better than bass this year, despite having a terrible year.
everyone on this board beat glen davis over the head with his per minute REBS last year and now everyone is DELIGHTED with brandon bass's PER MINUTE REBOUNDING numbers that used to be SAME as davis and now less that davis has gotten MORE minutes and produced MORE rebounding PER MINUTE with those more minutes.
but the biggest losses for BOS are 1) help defense system not the same with bass. bass is a gritty hustle player, but how many charges has he drawn this year?
2) davis could play the 5, and don't look now, fat hater hypocrites, but this team was the SAME TEAM last year, just change out bass and davis- shack, daniels, delonte, jerlame were CONSTANTLY HURT last year and we still managed to be 33-9 instead of the comparatively terrible record we have this year. the difference?
you tell me- bass inserted where davis used to eat minutes, KG now plays the 5 all the time he's on the floor vs. almost never last year. bass has taken as many rebounding nights "off" as davis ever did last year- SAME THOSE REB STATS.
so how is bass "much better"? just because he "is"? the stats don't bear it out other than FG% and FT% advantages for bass. it's undeniable what we LOST in davis compared to bass- davis mopped minutes at the 5 and finished out games for us last year when we were the best team in the league- until davis got hurt. help defense. ball movement (stops when bass gets the ball), passing, floor vision, feet- ability to move them in the right ways. all advantage davis.
but bass is "much better". if bass is "much better" don't we get "much better" per minute stats out of him, since he can't cover minutes at the 5?...........................................................
