“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."
