Pierce thought about a trade demand, but Doc and Danny convinced him that he should stay. Sounds like Doc was the one that was the most influencial. His rep is that he's very smooth and charasmatic. I think Orlando just got tired of hearing him after years of hearing the same stuff. Sounds like he's a good fit here, for at least a few good years. I'm glad that Pierce thinks the same thing about himself.
