Just let it have it's own thread: Starting LB

It seems this topic comes up in just about every thread on BSOTS, so I figured, rather than sifting through every other thread here, why not just start one about the topic.

Do the Suns start Leandro Barbosa, and have Jason Richardson off of the bench, or should they stick with the way it is now?  It is a very difficult argument, and one could argue on either side of it, so it is going to come down to a matter of opinion.  Who do you think should have the role of starter and why?

There are many things to consider, offensive skills, defensive skills, salary, who the bulk of their minutes will be spent playing with, etc.  I think when you take everything into consideration, I think the Suns will still end up starting JRich over LB.  In my opinion, becuase of LB's better defensive skills, I think he could provide a boost at the end of games to get key stops and steals, becuase of his long arms and overall quickness.  I think the Suns are going to have JRich finish the games on the premise of the starters being the ones to finish, but if it were me, LB would close games out at the 2 guard position.

What are everyone else's thoughts?
