Collins Should Start Over Thornton

What do you think about the idea of starting Marty Collins instead of Al Thornton. I think that with Collins on the floor, there is less isolation and better ball movement.  Collins is also a better one on one defender than Thornton and a better passer.  Thornton could come of the bench and lead along with Ricky Davis.  Thornton could still have a significant amount of minutes but he's just not starting.  You know how the Lakers start Walton but Lamar still got more minutes than him despite coming off the bench (this was before Bynum got injured), I think our team will benefit from this strategy as well.  Just like what Phil jackson said, "It doesn't matter who you start, what matters is who finishes".  Well, I don't really know the exact quote but it's something in this area.  Your thoughts?
