Spurscast #239: Trade deadline

On this episode of the Spurscast, Jeff and I reviewed a very light week for the San Antonio Spurs, which included home games against the Oklahoma City Thunder and New Jersey Nets. We recapped the games and discussed some positives and negatives. Among the positives was Gary Neal’s hot streak lately, and among the negatives, aside from the injuries, was Richard Jefferson’s recent slump.

In the scond half of the show, our topic of the week centered around the trade deadline and the Spurs standing pat with the roster they had and not making any moves whatsoever. Jeff and I debated and discussed whether or not this was a good idea considering some of the teams in the West improving, and the Thunder particularly, looking to be primed to make a deep playoff run with their latest acquisitions.

Make sure to leave us your thoughts and comments on the topic so we can read them next week.
