In response to kaktug's comment:
the longer PP starts at the 3, the longer jeff green's growth will be slowed. green's a natural 3 and should be starting there. end of story. in green, rondo and bradley we have three very nice starters at the 1-2-3. admittedly, neither rondo or bradley has a deadly outside shot. if we could get a true 2-guard, bradley can come off the bench at the 1 or the 2. that might actually be ideal.
BINGO- and then enter the nincompoop-posing-as-coach- the "veteran player's coach", doc blithers. doc would never make such a move unless pierce had one leg amputated. it's not really such a big move. mchale did it, havlichek did it, maxwell did it. going way back..... bill sharman? but such a concept- wholesome and for the "good of the team" is foreign to doc rivers, a functional idiot of a coach.
all doc cares about is pandering to and his cred with pierce and kg- to the point where what's best for the team is starkly avoided
