Default Nuggs fans, tell me what you think of the Celtics young players after tonight's game.

Since Paul Pierce is out, we are starting the youngest lineup in the history of the NBA:

Sebastain Telfair -- 3rd year out of high school
Tony Allen -- 3rd year out of College
Al Jefferson -- 3rd year out of high school
Ryan Gomes -- 2nd year out of College
Gerald Green -- 2nd year out of high school

Tell me what you guys think of them.

Yep, gametime decision. Telfair has been struggling of late.

That's because he sucks.

Still a work in progress for the Celts... They definitely showed their inexperience...

Best player wasn't mentioned -- Rajon Rondo. I'm a fan of his game. Surprised he's not starting, especially because Telfair sucks. Green shows flashes, but he's a worse shooter than I thought. Jefferson's legit.

If Jefferson can stay healthy he will be a dominant force in the East.

I think Jefferson would be a beast regardless of the conference he played in. He has had 9 straight games of 10+ rebounds. Once the Celtics start winning, he will get his due. Until then, he will remain anonymous to rest of the league.

Everybody is riding Dwight Howard's jock, yet Jefferson is not that far behind him in production at the same age:

Dwight Howard: 16.8 pts, 12.6 rebounds, 2 blks AGE: 21
Al Jefferson: 12.9 pts, 9.8 rebounds, 1.5 blks AGE: 21 (and he was coming off the bench at the beginning of the season and even had his appendix removed)
