    Does anybody know if San Antonio has nice condos to rap in?

    Good move for San Antonio.

    WOW! No offense to Richard Jefferson, but Captain Jack is an UPGRADE!

    S. Jax will suddenly look at his legs and realize he’s not injured anymore! lol

    so THAT’s why warriors traded for him. i didn’t think it made sense for a GSW/stack jack reunion, considered how terrible the relationship was when they last parted.
    on the flip side, it’s a good reunion with spurs though, especially since they actually won a championship together. can’t wait to see the swag the spurs will have now.
    as for the warriors, why jefferson? how are you going to play him and wright? i can’t see either of them playing anything except SF. full on tank mode.

    awesome trade for SA. Title contenders for sure.

    btw, Fisher just got traded LOOOOOOOOL

  • T-Money

    boing – don’t laugh they won a chip with jax starting at the 2. he’ll be straight with san antonio. jax is one of those guys that need to respect the org to behave and give his all. you would think that getting paid to perform would be enough but not everyone is as professional.

  • abaci

    seems like a good fit. and now he can rhyme Popovich with pop a b itch

  • fruizm

    I hate the Spurs but I do like SJ…he deserved better than the BUCKS.

  • LA Huey

    Good move for both teams. Warriors do some addition by subtraction, Spurs get a proven starter for Pop.

    This made my day. Thank you R.C. Buford.

    welcome back s-jax.
    RJ was garbage since day one in the alamo… he even knew that.

  • Sparker

    how are they fixed for one-armed midgets?

    good look for the spurs.

    Somewhere, Stephen Jackson is smiling. I figured Milwaukee would send him to no man’s land ala Toronto Raptors.

    This is an awesome trade… SJax has a lot left in the tank. So basically the Warriors dealt Monta, Udoh, and the other guy (I can’t remember… sorry) for Bogut and Richard Jefferson. Assuming Bogut can stay healthy, that’s a great trade. For all three teams.

    Damn I slept till 3 o’clock just about and I wake up and i’s like Xmas morning. So many trades. And the Dubs get a conditional first rounder? Win.

    according to salaries listed on hoopshype.com, it looks like the spurs will give about the same amount of money to jax, but his contract is one year shorter. hope jax can still play in the spurs’ system

  • http://www.slamonline.com TADOne

    Richard Jefferson is still in the league?!?!

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Richard Jefferson is a good mix with Curry and Warriors got Bogut. Good Deal.

  • RedRum

    I kid you not, I will be putting money on the Spurs after that move.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com albie1kenobi

    Richard Jefferson and Antoine Wright are roughly about the same player and neither can play power forward nor shooting guard. so who sits? i bet Mark Jackson wishes he’s back in the announcing booth.

    @Abaci .. Made me laugh

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Who’s this Antoine Wright you speak of?

  • pacmac

    all i know is, the dubs gave up their best player and up and coming young defensive big for richard jefferson, and bogut (who is a HUGE if).

    Spurs vs Thunder West final now…?

  • i_ball

    Look at the tweets by Jax:) If fully healthy they can make it to the Finals!!!

  • Iggi
