When a team has as much depth as the Boston Celtics, it's necessary for the coach to adjust playing times to maximize the game of every player. Doc Rivers is faced with the challenge of figuring out which Celtics will have to sit more in the 2012-13 season.
Although these players could be losing minutes, it doesn't necessarily mean they are failing to meet Boston's standards. For example, Rajon Rondo is the most valuable player on his team, but he could lose playing time because he finally has efficient backups. He doesn't have to play 37 minutes a night anymore.
The Boston Celtics are loaded with talent at almost every position this season. Unfortunately, they can only have five players on the court at a time. Therefore, some Celtics could lose playing time in the 2012-13 season.
