It depends on the situation. But the problem isnt JR starting as opposed to the starters doing a better job. The Knicks dont have the firepower that most teams have. Its a 2 man show. This is why the Knicks are in trouble as the season progresses from the lack of rest they can give Melo.

They do play together but one of them are always on the floor. If they both are starting then when its time to rest that next unit will be utterly destroyed offensively and defensively. I may not be explaining clear enough though. I know as fans you want the best unit out there on the floor to begin the game but once they are off the floor they would not be able to catch up or maintain leads. You need both of them to lead each unit.
