It's been a busy week in the NBA. A lot of teams made trades in preparation for the stretch run. The Spurs on the other hand, basically did a salary dump and traded Theo Ratliff to the Charlotte Bobcats for future draft consideration. The Rodeo Road Trip resumed and after the Spurs barely beat the Indiana Pacers, they suffered a fourth quarter debacle against the Philadelphia 76ers and lost.
