Training camp is the time for coaches to experiment with their lineups and find out what works best for the team.
The Celtics' depth makes that job a little more fun for head coach Doc Rivers. Rivers has seemingly endless possibilities for situational lineups. The acquisition of new players mixed with the increased drive of old Celts creates an entertaining, intense training-camp atmosphere for Boston.
Some new Celtics are transitioning smoothly, while others need to put in extra effort to mesh. However, it's still only the beginning.
With the first week of training camp behind them, the Celtics can move towards molding great individual players into members of an outstanding Celtics team.
