"If you go small against us, you may be playing into our hands." - #Celtics Doc Rivers before the C's practice this morning. — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) October 29, 2012 The Celtics have so much versatility this season with small ball lineups. Let's see what Doc can throw out there to throw the opponents' defenses into disarray. He can throw out a 4 guard lineup with Rondo, Jet, Courtney, Barbosa, along with Jeff Green. That could be the fastest 5 man unit in the league. Or, we might see Rondo, Barbosa, Lee, Green and Wilcox. And let's say we have Rondo, Bradley, Barbosa, Lee and Green. Or, just for fun, let's see a 5 guard lineup with Rondo, Bradley, Barbosa, Lee and Jet. We wouldn't get many rebounds, but maybe we wouldn't need any with the speed, scoring, and defense of that team. Doc will be like the proverbial kid in a candy store as he picks and chooses his lineups. This is going to be a fun year. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
