Kidd is probably a better fit with the starting unit than coming off the bench tbh.. It's all about which players mesh better with each other. A starting lineup of:
Kidd
Brewer
Anthony
Stoudemire
Chandler

Would probably produce the best chemistry and blends the talents of each player best. Then off the bench we'd have:

Felton
Smith
Novak
tbd/kurt thomas
Camby

That bench can compete with the starting lineup of alot of non playoff teams in the league.
