On this episode of the Spurscast, Jeff and I reviewed a very light week for the San Antonio Spurs, which included home games against the Oklahoma City Thunder and New Jersey Nets. We recapped the games and discussed some positives and negatives. Among the positives was Gary Neal's hot streak lately, and among the negatives, aside from the injuries, was Richard Jefferson's recent slump.
In the scond half of the show, our topic of the week centered around the trade deadline and the Spurs standing pat with the roster they had and not making any moves whatsoever. Jeff and I debated and discussed whether or not this was a good idea considering some of the teams in the West improving, and the Thunder particularly, looking to be primed to make a deep playoff run with their latest acquisitions.
Make sure to leave us your thoughts and comments on the topic so we can read them next week.

Not trading at the deadline is agood thing, that means the Spurs are confident with this group moving forward. But like @Troy28 said I still think we need to add another quality player ti help us in the playoffs.
I don't have a problem with the Spurs opting to stand pat at the trade deadline but I still wish we get addtitional players via free agency. There are available players right now I hope the Spurs won't let any opportunity pass.
We are now suffering injuries which I don't like to see. I hope Parker comes back stronger and Neal and Splitter should get back to the lineup soon.
The West mad some moves and the most notable is Perkins to OKC and Gerald Wallace to Portland. I wish we could get Troy Murphy but it seems he prefers to play in the East.
