Brandon Bass is The Muscle

New, comments

I like it. Bass kind of reminds me of a bouncer at a bar. He lets his brawn do the talking for him, but you can tell that he's probably a big softie on the inside.

Courtney Lee has been at camp for 2 days and already he's starting to hand out nicknames.

"My nickname for Brandon is ‘The Muscle,’ " Courtney Lee said. "My man is strong on that block, he goes hard, he’s going to rebound, he’s going to finish strong so he’s ‘The Muscle.’ " "If you look around the league, there’s a lot of guys like that," Lee said. "He’s the definition of a true professional. He comes in, works hard, gets the job done and then off the court you don’t hear too much from him. He’s just the definition of a professional."
