Boston's Best Bench In This Era?


Moving along with the Summer Forecast series, the question was asked - "Will the bench be better?" I think (if healthy) that the answer is pretty clearly a "yes." So I thought I'd take it a step further.

I think the bench could be the best one we've had AG (after Garnett trade), at least once Avery Bradley returns to full health. You'll have Jason Terry and either Bradley or Lee in the backcourt which makes for a great offense/defense combo. Then you've got the handyman Jeff Green that can fix a lot of holes. Finally, you've got some young legs backing up Garnett and Bass down low in Sullinger and Wilcox, with Collins tossed in to provide defense and fouls. Knocking on every piece of wood within reach, I'll toss out the usual caveat of "as long as they are mostly healthy," this group is going to be huge for Boston.

What do you think? Will this be the best bench since the KG trade?
