Although the Boston Celtics have stumbled to a less-than-convincing 2-2 start, three players have carried their weight thus far.
It's hard to call anyone a stud when the team does not have a scorer averaging more than 20 points or a double-digit rebounder. Yet, the play of a certain three individuals has stood out through four games.
On the other hand, many are to blame for the poor opening slate. Fans, coaches and teammates have high expectations for this year's team; three Celtics have significantly failed to live up to expectations.
What's that you say? The Celtics are inconsistent in the regular season? Preposterous!
Before we break down who's been hot and who needs some more time in the gym, everybody take a deep breath.
There are 78 games left for the Celtics to get comfortable.
