12:32 PM ET 10.10 | Not even half way into the preseason, Celtics Nation is already asking whether Jared Sullinger should start and have Brandon Bass come off the bench. It's a legitimate question. Sullinger has played more like a veteran than a rookie in the first two games of the very young preseason. I think we're over-hyping Sullinger's performances and forgetting how important Brandon Bass is to the team. So, after being intrigued by the question, here's my take on who should start at power forward.

Rookies are getting too much hype. Let them play in a few real NBA game first before deciding whether they should start.

I agree............Very few rookies are capable of being consistent enough to start...............Give him time to adjust to the speed and physicallity of the game....

I have always like that Sullinger kid even if he went to that school in Ohio. I say start who deserves to start. These guy is well polished in the post and a very good rebounder.

They should start Sullinger there because they need more rebounds and a guy who can get points without plays called for him!!! Bass will be vital coming off the bench with that second team...
