Found September 13, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
There has been a lot of speculation on what kind of rotation the Celtics will have this year.  I think the best answer is that they will go round and round.  By that I mean that I think the question is incomplete.  The pertinent omission is When?  I suspect that the rotation in the first game of each month will not likely be the same rotation as used in the first game of the previous month. The combination of differing goals for Ainge and Stevens, delayed availability of recuperating players, and the likelihood of multiple trades during the season seem to almost guarantee that the lineup card be filled out in erasable pencil.  With these disparate factors in mind, here are my WAG’s for first game of each month of the season. November PG—Lee 33, Pressey 15 SG—Bradley 35, Brooks 13 SF—Green 18, Wallace 30 PF—Green 18, Bass 30 C—Humphries 33, Faverani 15 December PG— Lee 28, Pressey 20 SG—Bradley 33, Lee 5, Brooks 10 SF—Green 28, Wallace 20 PF—Olynyk 15, Sullinger 15, Bass 28 C—Humphries 28, Faverani 20 January PG—Rondo 20, Lee 13, Pressey 15 SG—Bradley 25, Lee 10, Brooks 13 SF—Green 28, Wallace 20 PF—Green 8, Sullinger 24, Olynyk 16 C—Humphries 30, Faverani 18 February PG—Rondo 30, Pressey 18 SG—Bradley 24, Lee 24, Brooks 4 SF—Green 28, Wallace 20 PF—Green 8, Sullinger 24, Olynyk 16 C—Humphries 30, Faverani 18 March PG—Rondo 30, Pressey 18 SG—Bradley 33, Brooks 15 SF—Green 38, Brooks 10 PF—Sullinger 30, Olynyk 18 C—Humphries 28, Faverani 20 April PG—Rondo 30, Pressey 18 SG—Bradley 33, Brooks 15 SF—Green 38, Brooks 10 PF—Sullinger 30, Olynyk 18 C—Humphries 28, Faverani 20 This fanciful analysis infers that Bass, Lee, and Wallace are moved during the season—perhaps without any immediate contributors in return.  I also think Crawford will be moved, perhaps in combination with one of the three above. If this is even remotely close to accurate, then I should have bought a lottery ticket instead of writing this piece.[Discuss on CG Forums!]

Report: Rajon Rondo to miss start of season

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo will likely miss all of the preseason as well as some regular season games, according to Rondo suffered a torn right ACL on Jan. 25.  The knee was surgically repaired 

Video: Phil Pressey interview

Marc D'Amico interviewed Phil Pressey this week as training camp is just around the corner. Pressey is in a rather favorable position. Right now he's the only healthy true point guard on the roster, so not only does he have a solid shot at making the roster, but he could very well play minutes early in his Celtics career. If he sticks he also will get the chance to learn...

Jordan Crawford is ... "the leader"

I suggest you imagine the trailer voice guy reading the title, it becomes much scarier that way. Oh, and before it's too late, you can un-throw up in your mouth because this is not a quote from Brad Stevens or any other Celtic. It's directly from the invincible Crawford himself. #Celtics guard Jordan Crawford said in his 4th year in NBA he feels teammates are starting...

Kris Humphries would like to sign a "3 or 4 year deal" with Celtics, help them turn things around

Kris Humphries has been called a lot of things by Celtics fans, both before and after his trade to the Cs on July 12th. And most of them have not been good. After all, he is the man who got into a fight with Rajon Rondo and then complained about the scratch marks afterwards. He's also the dude who married Kim Kardashian. Which means you need to question every decision he makes...

Kris Humphries Doesn't Want To Be Part Of 'Tanking Situation'

Kris Humphries has spent the summer working on his game and says he is ready "to compete for a big role" on his new team, the Boston Celtics. Humphries has heard talk that the Celtics are trying to tank next season, but he does not want to be part of that situation and does not believe that is where Boston is headed. "I'm not looking to be a part of a tanking situation...

Joe Pace Almost Played for the Celtics?

Imagine having a 3 year contract for $300,000 in 1978 from the Celtics.  Imagine being at their summer camp in August and then just disappearing.  It sounds like a weird dream or a tale based on the Bermuda Triangle (or something involving a guy from WTHHT).  But it's totally real and totally happened to Joe Pace. To quote the famous Bob Ryan "they said he had possessed...

Celtics close to an agreement with 98.5 The Sports Hub to broadcast their games

Last month, WEEI announced that they would no longer be broadcasting Celtics games after the two sides could not reach agreement. At the time it was speculated that the other radio power in the city, 98.5 The Sports Hub, would pounce at the chance to add the Celtics. After all, the station already owns broadcast rights to the Patriots and Bruins, and by adding a 3rd team they could...

Jordan Crawford Says Celtics Are Starting To Look At Him As Leader

Boston Celtics guard Jordan Crawford is known for a nice dunk on LeBron James during a summer camp run, and for getting ethered by La La Anthony after a Knicks vs Celtics game. Crawford for the little he’s done in the NBA, still has some talent. Even with the Celtics being Rajon Rondo’s team, the fourth year guard out of Xavier believes that he’s looked at as a leader by some...

Kelly Olynyk Progressing, Hoping He Won't Be Limited

Plantar fasciitis forced Kelly Olynyk to skip training with the Canadian national team this summer, but the rookie said on Friday that he is progressing. "It's getting a lot better," said Olynyk. "Obviously, we’re still taking precautionary measures to make sure I’m ready to go for training camp; hopefully it doesn’t linger throughout the year." Pressed...

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc’s out to kill us all

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.  Rivers acknowledged that the 2011 Kendrick Perkins-Jeff Green trade was a mistake that ultimately hurt Garnett. “I think so,” reflected Rivers, “because we needed the toughness. The one thing we did by...

Doc Rivers admits Kendrick Perkins trade was a mistake

When it went down Celtics fans were up in arms — Boston traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City mainly for Jeff Green. Danny Ainge’s name suddenly came with a new adjective for Boston fans and it’s one we can’t repeat here. Since then Boston has defended the trade and as Perkins’ production has slipped some of the anger dissipated. Doc Rivers now admits it was a mistake...

Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries found out they both get mistaken for each other all of the time

Brothers? Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries get mistaken for each other all of the time I wonder what Blake Griffin secretly thinks when someone calls him Kris Humphries? Of course Griffin would never openly admit to what he is thinking when called “Kris Humphries,” but one could assume he probably isn’t too thrilled with it. Humphries on the other hand, probably loves it. This...
