According to Rajon Rondo, the Lockout can be a good opportunity for the Boston Celtics. 2008 NBA Champions have a veteran team, a shorter season could be a benefit for Doc Rivers roster.
Marc J. Spears reports for Yahoo! Sports:
In past years, the Celtics players usually started working out together at the team’s practice facility a month before training camp. That wasn’t possible this season because of the lockout – though not everyone views it as a negative.
“It might help us,” Rondo said. “Fresher legs. Not as much wear and tear without [a normal] training camp.”
Once the free-agent market opens, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge could try to re-sign Green and Davis. He also has to fill other roster spots.
“Guys have to come mentally and physically prepared whenever we start,” Rondo said.
