Celtics forward Brandon Bass goes through a swimming lesson Friday in Waltham.Boston Celtics forward Brandon Bass hopped in the pool with children from the Boston Boys & Girls Club on Frida in his quest to learn how to swim. After watching his 6-year-old son learn to swim, the 28-year-old Bass wants to learn to join him in the water.
“We’re not going to miss anything of last year," said Bass. "That’s the past and we have to move forward. I just think the guys that were around during that time, it was a blessing for those guys. Like me, [Rajon] Rondo, Avery [Bradley], Jeff [Green], it was a blessing to be part of last year. What we want to do is just share those things and our experiences with the new guys. And hopefully we have a successful season."
