Is Kevin Garnett really healthy?
He said yesterday that he is. Coach Doc Rivers said there are no restrictions on the big man. But when will we see the old KG? Or will we see an old KG? Garnett’s health will be the key to any title hopes.

Is Rasheed Wallace really ready to play a secondary role?
Wallace, when motivated and relatively happy, can be one of the game’s best power forwards. But will he accept fewer minutes and a reduced role to win a title? He said all the right things regarding the situation yesterday.

Who will do Leon Powe’s dirty work?
Former No. 5 pick Shelden Williams was added in the offseason to grab boards and eat up space in the paint, but can he fill the departed Powe’s critical role?

Who will emerge as the backup point guard?
The team acquired Marquis Daniels and added rookie Lester Hudson, and both may be needed to relieve Rajon Rondo for spells. Are they capable of productive minutes?

Will Danny Ainge further upgrade the roster?
The general manager is obviously prepping the roster for one final title run, and he said he won’t hesitate to make changes based on what he sees in training camp.
