Could the San Antonio Spurs actually be getting a somewhat exciting player to add to the boring, yet fundamentally sound team? It appears so. The Spurs have shipped out a couple of veterans (Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas, and Fabrico Oberto) who also happen to have expiring contracts, to the Bucks for Richard Jefferson.
The problem is Jefferson is starting to get a little older much like the rest of the Spurs, so how much is he actually going to add? Jefferson showed he still has some basketball left in him, after he was traded last year, he ended up averaging nearly 20 points a game for the Bucks.
This trade could work out in a similiar fashion that the Mike Finley trade worked a few years ago. It will be a shot of life added to the aging Tim Duncan and the flip shot shooting Manu Ginobli and Tony Parker. I still don't know if they are capable of competing with the Lakers out West, but I do believe the Spurs just improved their team. Really though, who cares? It's the Spurs.
