So here we have Brandon Bass. He's an undersized power forward who utilized an excellent mid-range game and a lot of effort and hustle to turn himself from a bench/role player into a crucial part of the starting lineup on a championship contender.

The Celtics came within one win of the NBA Finals last year and that was with Bass having the season of his life, playing the most minutes any team had ever given it and parlaying that confidence and subsequent solid numbers strong play into a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract with said team.

Not even half a season later, he's "frustrated," "not satisfied," and talking about his minutes and his touches.
