Still donít get the notion that he should come off the bench until he plays better.
Never saw a team be so fluid with starters based on performance the first month of the season. If this was game 4 of a playoff series, fine. But less than 15 games into a season?
If you plan to have him start long term, you have to let him get back to where he was with the players heís going to play with. And some actually think he should come off the bench (crazy, imo). If thatís the case, we need to trade him. Regardless of what type of players we have ďaheadĒ of him, there is no conceivable way to justify paying $30M per for a reserve.
So it really comes down to waiting for him to get back to his level, or trade him.
Putting him on the bench temporarily is pointless, even if heís ok with it and Brad actually wants to. If we canít win with him around our other four starters, they probably arenít very good either.
