The Herald has a fluff piece this morning telling us how happy Telfair is with being in Boston. He is close to his roots in New York, happy to be away from the chaos in Portland, and happy to be playing for a team who feels that he has talent and will fit our system.
“You’re not out there just playing; you mean something. That’s huge for me, and that’s why I was excited to come to a team like this where we have an All-Star like Paul and people upstairs who want me here. As far as who’s going to start and all that, it’s pretty much wide open as I see it. Everyone’s going to come in and play hard and do their best to get the starting job.”
It will be an interesting training camp with all of the starting jobs, except for Pierce's spot, wide open. There will especially be heated battles at the PG spot. You know that West will be trying his hardest to keep the spot he worked hard for last season. Rondo and Telfair both have what it takes to run this team and will be working hard for the spot.
I expect Telfair to win the starting nod to begin the year with West playing mostly at the 2 and moving to the point to guard taller PG's. I expect Rondo to eventually take over the starting spot. He just brings too much to the table not to.
