Celtics fans spent a good portion of the pre-season discussing the advantages of playing Gabe Pruitt at the back-up point guard.
The chief advantage was giving Doc the flexibility of moving Eddie House over to the two.
Tony Allen never entered the back-up point guard discussion.
Why should he?
Don't we already have 4 point-guards on the roster?
Well, best I can tell, the answer to that question is, no, we don't.
Tony Allen seems to be getting the ball-handling responsibilities on the second unit.
Looks like the Boston Celtics are starting the 2008-09 NBA season with FIVE point guards on their roster.
