seriously, i heard people talking about how the spurs robbed milwaukee like the lakers did mephis for pau. He was supposed to put them over the edge. Today with the playoffs on the line, he hit 1 shot in 31 minutes and scored an amazing 4 points while duncan and manu did everything they possibly could in a loss. Come on Rich, give them something. Has anyone been a bigger let down?

Hedo Turkoglu has...But

Hedo Turkoglu has...But Jefferson has too, he disappears alot in games. He needs touches and he doesn't really get many, he is a rhythm player that once he hits a couple of shots he gets aggressive...He just isn't a great fit

Yup

Hedo has...I think Hedo just wanted the money though...He could/can still perform at a high level if he wanted to. Richardson can't. He lost his quickness. Especially when attacking the rim.

LMAO- "1 game"
It's not just one game, my friend. It's been the whole season. Jefferson's game is actually what I'd call an "old man's game". He used to have good athleticism, but doesn't solely rely on it like a Reuben Patterson. I think Jefferson is a guy whose offense comes from having the ball in his hands and on cuts. With Duncan manning the Post and Manu holding the ball for excessive amounts of time going to the hole, Jefferson is confused with his new role on the team. He's been taking horrible shots this whole season and I don't blame him.

Ok... RJ's shots haven't been "horrible". They're just not in the flow of San Antonio's offense. In fact, his shots are great shots if he played on Golden State. haha

It hasn't worked out well

It hasn't worked out well for RJ this season. As it was mentioned above, he's struggled finding his role. It's been so bad that the reports are he's thinking about opting out of the last year of his deal just to get out of San Antonio.

Still though... I'd say the Turk move was the worst of the off-season since they signed him to a long term contract and overpaid him dearly.

Biggest disappointment on

Biggest disappointment on the court- Richard Jefferson. I truly believed that when the Spurs got him they were the only team that would be able to compete with the Lakers for the West.

Overpaid player of the offseason- Hedo. Simply didn't get anywhere near the productivity he could have been able to produce. I bet Blazers management is incredibly happy he decided to go to Toronto.

As a Blazers follower, I'm extremely happy he didn't end up in Portland. I never understood why they were trying to sign him anyway. I felt the whole time he'd be a disappointment and was only getting hype as a free-agent due to his playoff performance. No way is he worth 10+ million per year... Especially due to the fact he's 30+ years old.

I think Blazers management should send Hedo's wife a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates for her deciding to not go to the city of Portland.

Eddy Curry continues to be a disappointment every year since he lost the state title game in high school to a bunch of undersized white kids from the suburbs. Arenas was pretty disappointing this year as well.

I believe Hedo has been the biggest disappointment as well...Another guy that seems to be a disappointment after all the buzz in the preseason is Rasheed Wallace. He is not even a shadow of the former player he was. He was brought in to bang with the best bigs in the East on defense and spread the court with his long ball on offense. Neither aspect of his game is clicking now and he seems to be a big disappointment in Beantown.

Maybe not the biggest

Maybe not the biggest dissapointment but one of them, is Emeka Okafor. They got him thinking that they would move up in the standings and he'd be one of the best big men in the west.

Hedo and Rasheed

Have both been big disappointments, but I think that llperez brings up an excellent point. Jefferson has at times faded and has been slightly inconsistent, as have Turkoglu and Wallace, but he seemed to fit in that Spurs team so well, he was supposed to be the piece that made them contenders again. They had been hurting for that fourth scorer, and RJ was supposed to provide. He has been incredibly disappointing, and due to his attitude, age and conditioning, all of which are much better than Turkoglu/Sheed, it is nothing less than totally disheartening to see what Richard Jefferson has produced if you are a fan of the Spurs. He just has never found a role with either of his teams since he was traded from New Jersey and this was a guy who would have arguably made the All-Star team a few years ago. I remember in 2006, in the Heat/Nets second round series, he was just killing it, but he was also not going up against Caron Butler. Butler definitely destroys him right now, and I feel the Spurs might need to look for other solutions to their issues on the wing. The Raptors had terrible perimeter defense before Turkoglu, The Celtics were old before Rasheed, but the Spurs did not seem to be in this much trouble last year when they were starting an aging Michael Finley and Roger Mason, neither of which is as talented as Richard Jefferson, which just has to make you wonder why. Timmy, Manu and Tony have all seen better days, but Jefferson by far played his worst season in a long, long time.
