If the San Antonio Spurs didn't have enough weapons to win a fourth NBA championship of the decade last year, they have enough now to start the new one with a championship banner being raised in the Alamo city.
That's because the Spurs acquired Richard Jefferson from Milwaukee today. The Bucks will pick up Bruce Bowen, Fabricio Oberto and Kurt Thomas in return for the disgruntled small forward; who will now team with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili in San Antonio.
Jefferson has NBA Finals experience as a member of the New Jersey Nets, having made it there in 2002 and 2003. Ironically, the Nets lost to San Antonio in the 2003 Finals.
