This is different though. This isn't like the Isiah Thomas, Joe D., Vinnie situation because AI is like Isiah Thomas. We are basically benching Isiah Thomas (AI) and starting Joe D and Vinnie (Rip and Stuck). But I do agree that AI should regain confidence of his teammates and himself by coming off the bench. I really do hope it works out. He is a much better player than he has shown so far and it would suck not to make use of that in this year's playoffs against the Boston, Cleveland, or Orlando.
