Do we need to pursue Cousins, or might Bass and Sullinger be sufficient bigs?

Brandon Bass and Jared Sullinger are two guys who have frustrated fans in 2012 with their inability to be the compliment to KG that this team so desperately needs. In the past three games, however, we have seen these players adopt slightly different roles, and have been key parts to our small winning streak. With Bass taking less shots and focusing on improving his defensive rotations and transition defense, he has been able to give the team the boost off the bench that his contract merits. Sullinger has stepped up and started banging like he did in college. He seems to like the challenge of playing against bigger players and better athletes, and thrives off his perceived lack of respect. His comments about yesterdays game show that he is adopting KG's attitude. He didn't think last night was chippy. He is a bruiser and seems like he may be capable of protecting KG in a way many Celtics fans hope DeMarcus Cousins might be able to. Perhaps we should abandon our pursuit of Cousins for now, as Sullinger has proven he has the right attitude, and this team might be on the verge of something really good with their impending 5-game home-stand. Sullinger is mean, and him and KG might be developing special chemistry. Stay tuned. And Danny, please don't jump the gun, we may be seeing the Celtics we have been hoping to see all year. Add a D.J. White, Chris "Birdman" Anderson, Kenyon Martin, or even Sean Williams as an extra banger down low and later this season and we may have the right mix to compete with the Heat.
