[QUOTE]Celtsfan4life, I honestly believe we will see an entire 2nd unit sometime by the end of the season and then in the playoffs. I believe that because we are so deep. I can see a 2nd unit with Delonte, Green, Baby, Krstic and possibly Wafer (might be a stretch here). That unit will more likely see Ray or PP running with it but I do forsee a wholesale substitution change using this unit at some point. All while still maintaining a 9 man rotation. And I feel this unit is solid in itself and will be quite productive on both ends of the court. Also, this unit is no significant downgrade from our 1st unit. If this unit plays well together, nobody could play with us. We'd wear down our opponents because their 1st unit would have to exert as much energy against this unit as they would against our first. No other team's 2nd unit could even play with ours.

Petey, yours is one of the more balanced and fair opinions I ever read so I always respect your views. Maybe you're right and we'll see a full substitution in the playoffs.
We're not far apart from each other. I just see a couple of starters in during the playoffs unless we are blown out or they are blown out. My view looks like this (notice I keep one starter in at all times):
Ray, Paul, KG, Rondo, Shaq then
Ray, Paul, Green, Rondo, Krstic (Green playing the 4, Krstic the 5) then
Paul, Green, West, Krstic, BBD (Green slides to 3, Paul to 2, BBD at 4) then
Green, West, Ray, Krstic, BBD (Green back to 3, BBD at 4) or
Green, West, Rondo, Krstic, BBD.....then
starters rotate back in kind of one at a time..
At any given time and depending on the matachups, you could see JON's name, Wafer's name, Arroyo's name, Murphy's name, or Sasha's name in for one of these folks but generally not all at once.
But, I see your point, Petey and maybe if they show success together late in the season or early in the playoffs, we'll see more subs all at one time.
