Honestly, I feel the trade is pure BS. I believe we merely allowed ourselves to be mentioned in the trade discussion as a favor to the Jazz GM and to help him get a better deal.
I dont know why a Spurs fan would want to get rid of Jax......he brings a toughness that this team has lacked for years. Manu has toughness, but he is always injured these days and rarely on the court. So Jax is basically our enforcer, something we definitely need. Jefferson is soft like the rest of our team, he wouldn't stand up for his fellow teammates the way Jax always has.
I like Jefferson as a scoring threat....but he plays almost no defense, doesn't rebound that well for his size, and isn't a great team leader.
Now, if we were trading for ZBo, that would be totally different....the guy plays offense, defense, and rebounds like a beast. I would take ZBo in a heartbeat, but not Jefferson.
