Better Off the Bench: Why Are People Suggesting Celtics Break Up Their Starting 5? (video)

The Celtics have a dynamite starting 5 and a deep bench. Why do some people want to mess with it?

EAST BOSTON — There may be no easier decision in Sports than figuring out which 5 guys the Celtics should put on the court to start every game this season. Their so called “death lineup” of Al Horford, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown & Kyrie Irving.

There. Done. Next topic.

But wait, there are some in the media and in the twitter-verse suggesting the C’s may be better off bringing one or more of these guys off the bench. Maybe it’s the time of year, maybe Celts fans just don’t know what to do with prosperity or have an innate need to make things more difficult than they have to be. But for whatever reason people are “talking about” It and so are we. Nick Gelso, Jimmy Toscano and Josue Pavon offer their thoughts on the Celtics starting 5.
