It make no sense for a team like Boston, who already had a strong leadership group, to use the "sink or swim" approach with a rookie. Teams who give big responsibilities to rookies are the one who don't already have leadership - and thus, don't have any other choice than to trust a rookie.

"I'm not motivated to get better because I don't have responsibilities" is the kind of antics a inexperienced teenager would use. The world doesn't work like that. Sure, there are exceptions, but these are precisely exceptions.
