Bass and the 'muscle' celebration
By Chris Forsberg
TNT ScreenshotSo it might not catch on like the "Flexing" that Keyon Dooling and Marquis Daniels created last season, but Brandon Bass and Jason Terry have their own little flexing celebration of sorts this year.
Brandon Bass and Jason Terry muscle bump after a bucket Thursday.
You might have noticed Bass and Terry striking a muscle-like pose and bumping each other following one of Bass's hard-earned buckets around the hoop. It turns out it dates back to the two seasons that Bass and Terry spent together in Dallas from 2007-2009.
Bass chuckled at his locker the other night when asked about the celebration and said Terry essentially dusted it off, especially now that the two are sharing quality minutes together in the starting lineup early in the season.
The muscle bump seems appropriate for an undersized power forward who has to grind in a land of giants. Maybe that's why Courtney Lee has nicknamed Bass simply, "The Muscle."
Hop HERE to read more on Bass from earlier this week when we spotlighted his hard-hat efforts that still float below the radar. Well, until everyone on the team starts muscle bumping each other after big shots.
