Should T-Mac sit the bench at first?

The last thing we need right now is an A.I. situation, where a declining superstar thinks he is undeservingly riding the pine while his team is out there stinking it up. But, that's the thing, the Rockets aren't sucking.  I'm willing to say that right now we easily have one of the top 10, possibly higher, sets of team chemistry right now and everyone is benefitting from it: the starters, bench, rookies, and front office (gah I mean we're winning some games on a D-League salary).  So, rather than having the whole team try to adapt to T-Mac's style of play, why don't we let him, for once, adapt to this team's style of play, packing on the points when we need him most.  We don't want or need a superstar right now getting his 30 pts at the expense of a 14 for 40 effort, we need a guy who'll provide that shooting threat and create opportunities for that vast supply of untapped talent around him.  Do you guys think T-Mac can make it in this system, add to it, or should we just cut our losses and trade him for a more well rounded team player and save some cash, while the winnings are up right now?

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
