The Spurs traded Kevin Martin to the Charlotte Bobcats for Tony Battie.
Wow, this trade looks so bad now. The Spurs traded Martin for Battie just to help them make the playoffs that season. If Martin would have been kept the Spurs decline would not be happening right now.

The Spurs have been a dominant team for years but now with Duncan finally seeing the end of his career coming close the Spurs are beginning to fade. The bench has always been the weakness of the Spurs and rthat trend continues this season. Splitter looks like he will be a solid player off the bench and continue to improves during the season. The Spurs could sneek into the playoffs this season but I don't think theyh will bne much of a contender this season. What does the future have instore for the Spurs? Its hard to say. Duncan and Manu and Stephon Jackson are on the decline and Duncan will probably retire in a xcouple seasons if not at the end of this season. Then the Spurs will begin to rebuild.

The San Antonio Spurs have place Manu Ginobili on the injured roster. They have replaced him in the starting lineup with Ersan Ilyasova. This move makes Stephen Jackson their starting SG as Ilyasova will start at SF. Tony Battie has been moved to the bench. Ginobili will eligable to return to the lineup once he plays in 8 games in the 2012 season.

The Spurs finish the season as an average team this season. Ginobili missed time due to injury hurting his overall stats for the season and in effect only giving him a "7" for the season. The bench might have been the best the Spurs bench in the last couple of seasons but when you have Ginobili, Scola and Stephen Jackson all having down seasons its hard to stay an championahip contender.
