Yeah, the more and more I think about it you may be right. I originally posted a big "No thanks" to the trade idea but they're both 28 and Jefferson is basically a 20/10 type of player. Obviously AJ not as good as TD but he models his game after him and plays alot like TD. He would be a great replacement when TD retires. Will Tiago give us anymore than what he is giving us this year? I do love Tiago's defense but AJ is easily a better all around/overall player. Our chances of winning it all this year IMO are about 25% which is high, but with AJ, I think the Spurs almost automatically become favorites to win it......I'm switching my thoughts and saying I'm all in for this trade.
