I think you mean Bell and Benny.Would you be willing to push out Maliq and JT for Bell and Brown to have their feelings saved by starting while we continue to be medicore? Because starting guys that don't produce has an impact on the guys that are coming off the bench.
I would start the best producers in recent games (Brown and JT), but the question was about JB's thinking. I am guessing he would focus on total minutes played, not whether it was starting or off the bench. I doubt Brown (for example) performs less well in 10 minutes off the bench, than in 10 minutes starting.
Overall, I see it as how the minutes are distributed, and how combinations work.
