WALTHAM -- With all the talk of different starting lineups for the Celtics this season, the reality is that Doc Rivers has eight or nine players who could fit that role depending on the situation. The obvious parallel to that is four players who could start will have to come off the bench.
Rookie Jared Sullinger has emerged as a potential starter, which would ultimately put Brandon Bass with the second unit. Bass said he had no comment about any of the lineup maneuvering, and added, "We have to get better as a team. I think Doc will make the best decision for the team."
Pressed further he said, "I've got to keep getting better, everybody’s got to keep getting better." The Celtics next preseason game is Saturday night in Hartford when they play the Knicks.
