Boston Celtics' Courtney Lee
2012-13 Starts: 39
Points Per Game: 7.8
Rebounds Per Game: 2.4
Whoever actually emerges as the consistent starter at shooting guard for the Philadelphia 76ers this season has a good opportunity to become the worst starter at this position.
With Jason Richardson possibly out for the season, according to Philly.com's Bob Cooney, however, that projected starter for Philadelphia isn't clear right now.
The starting five for Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics certainly isn't etched in stone at the moment, either, but it appears likely that Courtney Lee could eventually win the job.
Ray Allen is a season removed from his days in Boston, and Paul Pierce and Jason Terry are now members of the Brooklyn Nets. With Jeff Green starting on the opposite wing, Lee could eventually win out over Avery Bradley, who may be best suited coming off the bench to back up both guard spots.
Last season, however, Lee made 39 starts in 78 appearances for the Celtics and ranked 30th among all qualified shooting guards in scoring at 7.8 points per game.
He also finished 47th at his position with a player efficiency rating of 11.71.
So while Lee may be the best option as a starter for Stevens and the Celtics, he will still unfortunately rank as the worst at his position if he wins the job.
