I like this analysis and point of view. It makes the most sense, especially when I have seen players in these positions (like Borris Diaw) step it up and start to dominate during a particular game.
Spurs don't like to make trades. Time and again we'veseen this.
As such, I think it may be a very deep long shot to think that we will make something happen before the trade deadline.
