Who's the better player, Big Baby Davis or Brandon Bass

really big Big Baby - Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

We've gotten so focused on the debate between Jared Sullinger and Brandon Bass that it is harder and harder to remember that other guy that used to play the 4 for us. Is that foggy memory clouding our judgement?

Yes, Bass was instrumental in Boston’s journey to the conference finals last season. Yes, we know Brandon is an exceptional jump shooter from 15 feet out and yes, we know he is a perfect compliment to Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and KG. When you glance closer, however, Davis’ skills significantly outweigh Bass’ strengths. Big Baby is relentless in the paint, finds his way to the free throw line more frequently because of his mammoth size and offers a variety of moves inside. Davis is a terrific help defender and while he usually surrenders height to his taller opponents, he still manages to bully his way inside.

Yeah, I think I'll go ahead and disagree there. I'll take both Bass and Sullinger over Baby all day long and twice on Tuesdays. But I've been accused of being a homer before, so there's always that.

I guess I can see how Baby is a better fit for a rebuilding team that needs his variety of talents and perhaps Bass is more of a specialist at this point. But I just don't see how Baby could be considered better.
