Did we really miss something?



So after all the debate about the Jefferson trade we all agree that it was another great move by the Spurs FO. We are right back in the thick of things, and we only need to add a couple of bigs who can rebound and we are set to go.

But, then we have all these analysts saying that we missed on getting a big free agent in 2010, that we lost on a big oportunity to extend the spurs domination beyond Duncan's tenure. This is bullshit, like half the teams in the league are preparing themselves to be players in the 2010 market, and we all know San Antonio is not one of the most coveted places to land. Yes there are lots of good players to be had, but the franchise players would be long gone with the spurs fighting to get at best a borderline all-star. Just check the list, I put it in order from best to worst.

-Lebron James

-Wade

-Chris Bosh

-Amare ( ETO)

-Dirk

-Joe Johnson

-Michael Redd (possibly, he has a ETO)

-Ray Allen

-Nash

 

and also -Manu frikin ginobili

 

Better than Jefferson: Lebron, Wade, Bosh, Amare, Dirk, Joe Johnson..... (nash is old, and he will be like 37 by then)

That's 6 players, and a bunch of teams fighting for them. Did we really have a chance at any of them? Besides it would cost us the chance to compete in 09.

So all in all, i think this is an incredible trade, and there are no drawbacks. The 2010 free agent list is awesome, but not reallistic for the SPurs. The FO knew this, and I thank them for that.

 

(if anyone has more info or some detail to add to that list, it would be welcome)
