i don't think so, from the start anyway. just my 2 cents.
Jackson posted an Instagram message about him being better than someone and he wouldn't say he wasn't if he didn't think so.
i do think the Spurs were planning on bringing in T-Mac because he got his Chinese league clearance today so it must have been in the works for a while.
i think the Spurs were probably going to waive Blair and Jackson most likely didn't want to share backup minutes with T-Mac. that to me makes sense because Blair wouldn't have been playoff eligible after his waiving.
once Jax threw a fit, the Spurs decided to keep Blair and waive him instead. it's a shame since Diaw got hurt and Jax could've played backup 4 and been on the court with McGrady.
just my 2 cents anyway.
