Re: PS on Nellie

Maybe so, maybe not.  Pierce is close to Mercer in style, but I think it 
was better to pick the best player available than to try to fill a need 
with an inferior one (Mohammed).  In any case, I think Rick's trigger 
finger will quiet down as we get better.  After years of ineffective 
rebuilding I think most people can live with some changes for a while, 
if it seems to be yielding results.
