Thats right...also... Stephen Jax and his agent, playing their hand as dumb as can be, caused Speedy to take the offer on the table from Golden State bcuz it was not going to last long and Speedy was waiting for the Spurs who, in turn, were waiting for Jax. So Speedy did what he had to do....I felt for Speedy afterward bcuz Golden State said that he would start or get alot of minutes and then after Speedy signed....they signed Van Exel...he couldve stayed in San Antonio to get left over minutes...SJax and his agent affected Speedy's negotiations with us...I hated Jax for that...Speedy is the one who closed out the Nets for us....I LOVE YOU SPEEDY
