As already discussed by some of us, Pierce could be the 6th man and Green should be given the opportunity to start. It may be a good idea for Doc to at least try it for a few games. He may find out that Pierce is a good addition to the 2nd unit. I love Pierce, but as an older player, he may be better in a backup role playing less minutes.
I don't disagree about moving Pierce to the bench. All I'm saying is it will not happen.
You are probably right. Doc is too loyal to the veterans, sometimes to the detriment of the team.
