I would prefer to see JJ start in Max's place. That still gives you a rebounder on the second unit and a player who will not take shooting ops away from Gordon, Daye or CV. I am O.K. with Rips minutes againt GS. He is going to have to play himself back into shape. Hopefully he will play a little less next game after giving it a good test. I would like to see the coach be able to limit all players minutes to a maximum of 30 but I am not sure that will be possible. I do not think it was Rip's ego that was responsible for his start. We need what he brings (mid-range j) to be successful and if he waas able to go; run him.
