Training camp is likely to be a ruthless grind for minutes and roster space. While Smart's status on the Celtics seems as locked as anybody's, there are questions regarding the guard situation.
Will Avery Bradley once again share the backcourt with Smart? Stevens recently praised both for their All-Defense award potential and the dynamic they bring together, does that solidify his favor of them as starters?
How can Smart ever be part of the Boston Celtics nucleus if he is handcuffed by other players? A 10-man rotation may be Stevens' cup of tea, but constant substitutions will only continue to blind us to Smart's star power.
