That's the question being asked by Jeff on Celtics Blog
For one thing, the guy has paid his dues. He spent a good portion of last year working the D-League over, learning the pro game and getting a better feel for playing the point at this level. Then he had an excellent training camp and preseason. In the limited time he's had this year (mostly in garbage time, so numbers are largely irrelevant) he's looked solid and composed. He's not spectacular by any means, but he's at least worth looking at more.
I think Gabe has played well in his limited minutes… and they haven't all been in garbage time. He filled in well when Eddie House missed a game earlier in the season.
There's a lot of talk about bringing in another point guard. I think it's possible Gabe Pruitt could be the answer.
