    But can a team make such a trade that would put them over the cap if it solidifies their chance for a title? The big three's window is closing and an offensive force down low could put the Spurs over the top.

    If anyone could get Big Al to pass out of the double team and to rotate on the P n R, it would be Pop. You know if Al didn't, Pop would put him on the bench until he did. Plus Al would have Duncan there as a second coach and his presence would help him on defense as well. Of course, Al's minutes would diminish in such a situation and he might not even start for them. But he could be a huge weapon for them, especially in the fourth quarter, and you know Pop would be subbing in for defense, as he always does if you watch the Spurs.

    The Spurs don't need Mills or Blair, not sure they'd give up Splitter but that would ease the salary discrepancy because he makes $4 million and Blair only $1 million and change. And we could make Mills our starting point. Having watched him in the Olympics, I believe he is good enough to be a starting NBA PG and would definitely be better than anyone we have. Mo could then be a combo-guard sixth man and play back-up point, and we could trade Foy for a draft pick.

    I realize this is an unlikely scenario but one can dream.
    Blair is a spitting image of Big Al, without the forced shots, turnovers and pathetic defense.

    You're kidding right?
    For one thing Blair is 6'7 compared to Big Al's 6'10. And oh yeah, Blair can't shoot a basketball into a hockey net.

    To KKKarolinajazz they all look alike.

    Its funny seeing the contrast between our takes on the trade idea and the national forum on this site.

    Everyone on this site is saying if it doesn't include K.Leonard no way Jazz will trade a guy in his prime.............. HA HA lets hope the Spurs think highly of Jefferson the way all of these fans do.

    http://forums.prosportsdaily.com/sho...d.php?t=780834

    I mean there is no way the Spurs trade Leonard and there is no way Jazz trade Jefferson for just Patty Mills and Splitter. We won't take Blair. We already have a short PF in Millsap.

    Only option I see is.

    Jazz get (No matter what we have to be getting Danny Green if we do this trade. Our new GM found this guy)
    Danny Green
    Splitter
    Patty Mills

    Spurs get
    Jefferson
    Earl Watson or Tinsley
    Raja Bell (only to make salaries work) or include Foye instead to make it fair.

    I still don't think the Spurs will do it because they are winning right now. But this is the only way it could happen.
    Danny Green, Patty Mills & Foye cannot be traded until December 15th anyways.

    You guys are insane if you think the Spurs are dumb enough to take Jefferson. Jeffersons work ethic, the way he plays, all goes against EVERYTHING what Popovich has built that team to represent.

    Al is NOT getting traded. He will expire. I will bet anyone on that. Who's wants some of that action?
    Life is like watching Fast and the Furious 6. It's not easy, most of the time it's just dumb and pointless, everything is fake, there is a lot of noise, but if you close your eyes and picture yourself in an open field or a quiet forest, you can maybe make it to the end without killing yourself.

    Pops took Boris Diaw and made a productive playoff starter out of him in 1/2 season. That guy's the Lex Luthor of the NBA.

    Diaw did come from basketball outer darkness though. The Charlotte Bobcats.

    How does Boris Diaw apply to this? Just because he came from the Bobcats doesent mean he was a worthless player. Boris has been one of the best assist big men in the league during his career, something the spurs would be very interested in. Take a look at his APG, very impressive. He averaged over six assists one year for Phoenix.

    Big Al couldnt average three with the way his dumb head is set even if he tried. Hes a huge chucker that holds up players on this team that are designed to run. He ****s everything up, and if you cant come to realize that watching the Jazz games then go have a circle jerk with Franklin watching highlight reels of Big al with the Timberwolves over a romantic glass of wine.

    Ah, I see you were thinking of an even better comparison.
