Re: Plan 9 From Pitino Space

I seem to remember right up until the start of last season hearing that 
Dana Barros' feet were not healing well and he might not be able to play 
again.  I don't think there's any point in overreacting every time Kenny 
Anderson's sore knees are mentioned.  And, by the way, what exactly is 
wrong with them that surgery can address?  Last I heard it was some kind 
of a 'bone bruise'.

And if it's a choice between Mercer and Pierce, don't be surprised if 
it's Mercer that goes.  Pierce's contract will keep him here longer if 
things go to plan. (am I allowed to even allude to the CBA?) Also, 
Mercer may have more value because he has some NBA track record.
