Only 5 games into the season it is way to early to panic about this team or jump off the bandwagon. I said this at the beginning of the season we need to wait about 20 games to really judge this team and make a judgement to weather this team is going to make a title run. The good with this Celtics team in the first 2 weeks has to start at the top with the play of PG Rajon Rondo. Rondo is averaging a double double a game and as every person that talks Celtics knows is this team will only go as far a Rondo goes. Leandro Barbosa has been a great surprise so far and is filling in nicely with instant offense off the bench backing up Rondo. Barbosa hopefully will continue to play well until Avery comes back. The bad is not that good, but not that ugly but Jason Terry is a guy I look at that has had a slow transition into this Boston offense. Besides having a good game last night against the Bulls and coming up with some big shots in the 4th he has been iffy off the bench. Now starting could be a way to go with Terry as he seems comfortable playing with Rondo, KG, and Pierce right from the jump. Brandon Bass, got his starting roll taken away from him then given back to him. This was a good move by Doc to take Bass out of the starting lineup and light a fire up his you no what and Bass has responded with a nice few games against the Wizards, Bucks, and Bulls. Hopefully this will make Bass realize his spot is up for grabs and he has to play hard every time he is on the floor or Sully is there to step right in and take those minutes.  The ugly is Jeff Green and Courtney Lee, and in all fairness you have to give Jeff a break as he missed all of last season and needs to get his timing back. Courtney Lee is a guy I have hyped up since the day Danny made the trade. It looks like Lee is trying to hard to fit in instead of just going out and playing his game. It will be interesting to see how long Doc will go to Lee before he starts to cut his minutes dramatically.
