Paul, why don't you save this for after we get Delk or Mashburn, if 
you're so convinced it's going to happen.  As far as chasing his own 
players, we already had Walker and picking Mercer was far from 
questionable.  McCarty is the only move you could question regarding 
Kentucky players and he probably wouldn't have done that if we didn't 
already have the other two.  It wasn't such a bad idea to have a few 
people who had played together before.  Hanson was just a fill in after 
the season was already lost.  On top of that, he had a chance to take 
another in this year's draft and passed it up.  He was ready to take a 
virtual unknown in Nowitzki ahead of Mohammed.
