    KG, Sullinger, Pierce, Green, and Rondo



    What happened to Bradley?  I do think Doc needs to change the starting line up. If Bradley is not injured he should be in it.

    Celtics blog has an article about starting Green over Pierce

    http://www.celticsblog.com/2013/1/23/3908558/why-starting-jeff-green-over-paul-pierce-makes-sense


    Even if it doesn't work, it  shakes up the lineup and gives PP some rest.  Would put a player who doesn't mind leading as the 6th man.

    KG, Sully, Green, Bradely, and Rondo

    As long as there's no trade, Doc needs to shakeup the lineup.

    I just would like to see Green try the 2.

     

    Size matters.




    Why? at the 2 he would be even more of a deer in the headlights then he already is.

    Doc should also learn how to be a good coach

    Many of us have already suggested that Green should start the next few games.  The Celtics have been losing anyway, so it makes sense to try something else.  Green may be a much more effective player in a starting role.  If Green is a better starter and Pierce is ok as a 6th man, it could be beneficial to the Celtics.  Veteran players on most teams play limited minutes at some point during the season, (Spurs are a perfect example of this).

    So why don't you want us to trade for a true center?

    I agree we should make a change,  not sure the lineup suggested is it though.  I think you give PP and KG a certain amount of minutes,  and from there on you give the best players as many minutes as possible.  Sully would get as many minutes as allowed,  and probably Lee.  Doc can figure out the rest.

    Re: Start the five most talented players

    Green at the two is not a good idea at all. You need Bradley.  Green needs a position on the frontline. His ballhandling skills are not good enough. Pierce would be better there, but Bradley makes sense for the majoritiy of the game.  This is elementary stuff, you have seen nothing that says Green could start at the two guard position for any length of time.

    That would look crazy.  We sign Lee, Barbosa, Terry, and  have Bradley and we start a player at the two guard that ISN"T a two guard and expect it to work. Every now and then its ok, but on a regular basis is pretty dumb.  Everyone keeps harping about Green getting more minutes. The guy pretty much hasn't done anything all year or he wold be getting minutes.

    Green playing more if he is up to it healthwise at this point makes sense. I like you just don't know what to expect.  Like a box of chocolates with Green you never know what you are going to get.

    Maybe we should just start him in place of PP.  That would tell us for sure what we have.  Of course if he played well we wouldn't want to trade him, if he didn't play well we couldn't trade him.  Damned if you do and damned if you don't.  Maybe they should just give PP a nite off to rest,  start JG and see that way.  I think he definitely would be a better starter than a bench player.  You just don't see any emotion out of him,  like he doesn't care.

    How about just making sure he plays at least thirty minutes the next few games?

    That will fix things right up-maybe you should try posting it more often.

    The only way that happens is if Bass is no longer with the team.

     

    Sully starts at PF and Green comes in for Pierce and Green. Making Green the backup SF and PF. That should allow him to play 30 minutes per game.



    How does Green come in for Green.  What did you mean?

    No, they could just bench him.  Players have been benched before.  Of course I cant seem to remember Doc ever doing it.

    I don't know,  I just think Green would perform better if he starts.  When he played well he was a starter in OKC.  Just a hunch I guess.
