It all seems fine at the end of the season. Not at this point.
I also agree that RIP could be more usefull in 2013/2014 season than RIP, but you know its a long way to go until the end of the season and to soon to be sure!

Rip was fantastic before he got hurt.
Him and Nate off the bench would be great offensively since there are times when this team struggles.
Maybe at this point in his career Rip will be more willing to come off the bench. Not because he's not good enough to start, but because his game off the bench makes the bench and the team better. We'll see.
Rip needs to take the sixth man role.
Rip will whine to the media about his playing time eventually leading to him being traded at the deadline
but seems like with rip goin down recently, and so often for that matter, allowing guys to step up to where he is expendable with the depth we would still have. you either 1) trade rip for a big, or 2) keep rip, hinrich, nate, and try and pick up a big for cheap (not sure who is out there or if possible w/ cap restrictions?).
yea rip of the bench would be great
With Kirk going down, it shows that he is expendable because Nate and Teague can pick up his minutes and still win. There is no way in HELL I want Kirk to play SG because we've seen that already and he can't score.
With Rip coming back, he'd be the perfect 6th man right now because we saw what he can do before he tore his plantar facia, he was playing GREAT basketball.
Hinrich hasn't done anything this year at all.
without rip, you can still do
i think the only combos here you cant do is teague kirk cause those are your two pgs who dont score that well.
also keep in mind we have seen belleneli play some point and bringin the ball up court, and hes not bad at it either.
we still have a good balance in the backcourt if we trade rip. and then we add to our biggest need which is backcourt.
