The Boston Celtics' 0-3 start may have had people clamoring for the returns of Glen Davis and Delonte West, but since the return of Paul Pierce, people’s fears are dissipating.
While Pierce and the other members of the Big Four were never a question, all of the new acquisitions coming off of the bench were.
The Celtics bench in 2012 is mostly different, but the new players have filled in well during the early going this year. The outlook is bright for the reserves, considering that their chemistry should only get better as the season goes on.
After all, there was virtually no training camp to assimilate to.
So, while the new-look Celtics bench doesn’t jump out at you with the personality of last year’s team, the new players could surpass the production level of last year’s bench.
Again, it may take time, but this bench is better than last year’s.
