P. Pierce isn't playing well, I would play J. Green more. I would think about starting J. Green
How about this, just a thought...don't kill me but outside box?
PF- J. Green
C- K. Garnett
Bass in for KG, bring Terry in for Lee, Barbosa in for Rondo....
Just throwing around ideas

Bradley back mid-December, per Doc
Bradley / Lee
Green / Pierce
Bass / Sullinger
KG / Wilcox
Seems to be more in line with Doc's thinking? I think Barbosa should be geting more minutes, myself. Think he could be ... 'the microwave" if they would just turn him loose. And pairing him with Terry in the backcourt could be as electric offensively as Rondo and Bradley can be defensively.
It just seems to me that Doc continues to attempt to mold everything around KG, Pierce and Rondo when he has so many new parts that ... a different mold might be in order? I don't think they are playing to the strengths of some of the guys they have acquired.
What does Green at PF help us with?
If green starts he has to play 3. For anyone thinking PP should be coming off the bench, I'd highly disagree.
PP has become a more perimeter oriented player at this point in his career.... Why not start him at the 2 With both terry and Bradley off the bench?
as a tweener, green is best suited to come off the bench, he needs to be the dynamic 6th man he is paid to be. i dont agree w/ cottling him w/ cushy lineups to play in, he needs to man up and bring it every night.
PP is the elder statesman and although he is on the back end of his career he hasnt done anything to lose his starting job.
PP at the 2 to start a game? He can't cover a 2 with any serious athleticism. Green will be getting posted up by all the bigger/stronger 4's...
no, bad combo IMO.
6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”
Some jerks never learn.....
