Will Doc stick to his guns,and give the Big three rest?

Doc during his interview this morning had this to say about the Celtics quick starts,and rest for his aging stars.


"Listen, the last four years we started out great," said Rivers. "I think if they had stopped the season after 30 games we'd have won four championships in a row. Unfortunately, we don't, and so the first thought for us going into the season is that we have to finish the season. Obviously, what's happened is injuries. We get into a season and injuries happen and we can't finish the year. Last year was a great example of that, we just didn't finish the year. So with 66 games, the only thought going in is that you are going to need more guys to play, you're going to have to deeper into your rotation and then every single coach is going to have to be a master manager of rest and time."


If there is any year that Doc will need to use his bench, it will be this season. I think the bench this season outside of the rookies is  a solid bench that will give Doc what he needs.Doc has solid veterans to guide his bench this season. There are no big names this season,but I  Iike the bench. Doc will still play Rondo around 38-40 minutes a night,and he should still watch that as well. You don't want to burn out Rondo. I disagree with you Doc. You would have two championships if you had Perk last season,and if you had him in-game 7 in 2010. But I guess your right if you want to say in the first 30 games. Overall Doc use your bench.

Doc is wrong about last year. Take back The Trade and we win a championship, more than likely. But they (I) don't call him Smarm Master Doc for nothing. Still shilling for The Trade, I guess, after he himself admitted that it stunk.

Anyway, Rondo should be playing about 30 minutes a night, in my view. The team needs to find a way to make it clear to Rondo that they really don't need him playing 40 minutes at half-speed. What we need from Rondo is fewer minutes, played with more energy and focus.
