See Allen Iverson, This Is What It Is Like To Be A Team Player

Ray Allen on the possibility of coming off the bench next season: "To me, however I can help the team, it'll figure itself out. One thing in regards to Jeff [Green] is, whatever I can do to make him better and to push him and play the best that he can. It's weird that guys have always looked at it like coming off the bench is such a bad thing. I know we went through the situation with [Allen] Iverson, he didn't want to come off the bench. But, you've always worried more about who finished games, but more importantly, when you're on a winning team, winning the game is the ultimate objective, so that's my primary concern. I want to win. I looked at our record this year. It was sad that we didn't get to 60 wins, and we should have had 60 wins, based on the games we lost, and that would have gave us home-court advantage throughout the whole playoffs, East and West."
I would love for Doc to tinker with the line up a little. I think moving Jeff Green to the starting line up and Ray to the bench would be a great move. I feel Jeff needs to get in the flow of the game, while Ray can just go in the game and be Ray. That would probably move Paul Pierce back to the 2 and have the starting line up be Rajon, Paul, Jeff, KG and Jermaine O'Neal and Ray the 1st one off the bench. This would also give the Celtics a legit scorer off the bench.

Who knows if this will even happen, but I'm definitely not opposed to it.
