Don't like Terry starting. He's used to being sixth man, and he'll be there once Bradley's back. If Doc wants Terry to be more involved (I think we all do), he should give Terry free rein to run the pick and roll and create for himself and others.

Collins is a big body ... that's about the only positive thing I have to say about that. I wish Doc would give Wilcox more minutes.

Don't like Terry starting.

Don't like Lee starting, either.

but it won't work bc kg has to play center. And he is not a Center. There are still lots of good centers in the league. Miami is like the only team that can get away playing small ball basketbal

I really couldnt figure out why Collins was starting tonight. Hey, it was nice to see a legit lineup (size wise) start the game for once though.

Melo can play as well as Collins right now . 

Collins helped KG , I thought,  he stood in there to clog the dribble penetration.

Varejao would be Sooooooooooooooooo useful to this team. We need his rebounds, interior defense and garbage buckets when Sully isn't in there.

Danny ...PLEASE TRADE for Varejao   ;D

Wilcox 's game is more offensive , he gets abused under bucket by guards in the lane , they aren't afraid of him. Wilcox plays a bit soft ... nice guy and he gets abused by smaller guys.

Collins size , is enought to make most guys think hard about how bad they want that interior shot. And all he is doing is moving around the paint area. A good center would make a night and day diff in the Celtics.

Gortat would help , no doubt, but , I can really see Varejao fitting  in with the mindset of this team.  A faster paced , where Anderson doesn't have to carry an offensive load, but can roam like Noah and disrupt the opposing team .

I'm not convinced this is true.

That said, Wilcox rarely plays with KG, and Wilcox's defense should be better playing alongside KG. If anything, I'd start Wilcox over Collins and see how it looks.

I really liked seeing Collins out there with Garnett.  It was like having Perk out actually with the smart and physical defense Collins brought yet with even worse offense as hard as that's to imagine. 

Another benefit of playing Collins over Bass is that the fifth best offensive starter isn't taking shots away from his superior teammates.  Bass has been one of the least efficient players on the Celtics and he really shouldn't have been chucking up shots at the expense of Terry, Pierce, Garnett and Rondo.  Another plus is that without Bass to throw behind the back bounce passes to for mid-range jumpers, Rondo looked more aggressive offensively.  I like the attacking version of Rondo.
