Rumor that Al Jefferson may be off to San Antonio for Tiego Splitter, Stephan Jackson, and Patty Mills?
Not sure that's what I was expecting for Al, but wouldn't mind seeing Tiego come off the bench. Jackson can SAD and not sure about Patty Mills.
Great trade for the spurs
Just meh players for the jizz
Al Jefferson is the softest player to ever play in the NBA. His scoring is fantastic, probably one of the best big man in the game in that sense, but his softness on defense and lack of will to play it are mind boggling at how completely horrid he is. Dude wont go up strong to the basket, can't dunk, can't play zone, can't play man, can't box out, and the concept of help defense doesn't register. Not to mention the inability to pass the ball. If he were only able to play defense, he would be one of the best players in the league I honestly think. That just goes to show how awful he really is at it.
Seriously would like to get more out of him, but this one reason we probably wont. And yeah f**k making the Spurs better but all he offers is scoring. Not sure how he'll do when asked to play some defense like the Spurs are so good at.
