Just got done watching to a recent Doc Rivers interview and I found out some interesting stuff for this season.

- Courtney Lee will be the starting SG until AB returns from his shoulder injury when AB gets back "We'll see what happens", so I'm guessing Lee & Bradley will compete over the starting SG spot.
- KG is feeling better than he has in years and will continue to start at C.
- The only team he cares about facing is Miami, he says he doesn't care about the Lakers or OKC, his main competition is Miami.
- The Celtics plan to run more this season and get out in fastbreak more so no more one-man fastbreak with Rondo this year.
- Says he has no fear of the Lakers despite the Dwight trade. In his words, the Celtics defend Dwight better than Bynum (Which is true).

Good interview, can't wait for this season

I appreciate K.G. wanting to play the best and I like that the Miami Heat are finally on the map like that, but.. c'mon.. let's be real. What seed do we see the Celtics as next year? I don't expect any more playoff meetings for a while, unless it's 1/2 vs 7/8.

But the run and gun Celtics of the future should be interesting.

The Celtics will be a top 4 seed unless they suffer significant injuries or the Knicks & Nets have better seasons than expected.

Yeah but do you see Boston making the ECF's again to face Miami? I see them as a Top 4 FOR NOW too. I just think they're in a Half Rebuilding/Half Still Haning On phase. They're vulnerable against a lot of East teams that otherwise get handled by the top dogs this year I think. The Bulls should be back barring that outrageously horrific bad luck they suffered late last season.

I do see them making the ECF's again to face Miami, but to be completely honest with you...it wouldn't shock me if they were a 2nd round exit. It all depends on how much Rondo has improved and how much Pierce/KG/JET still have left in the tank.

To me it seems like Danny Ainge is going to try to do with Joe Dumars couldn't do with the Pistons and that's put a good mix of young talent around the vets that can take over for them when they're done.

@ East talk. West is winning regardless of who makes it from the East.
