The San Antonio Spurs fans had plenty to say about the ongoing hysteria, just hours before NBA free agency started.
It’s been a wild night in the NBA, and 2017 NBA free agency hasn’t even started yet. The San Antonio Spurs haven’t done anything, but other teams did.
The highlight of the night became the trade of Paul George. He will go to the Oklahoma City Thunder, with Victor Oladipo and Damantos Sabonis headed back to the Indiana Pacers. It’s a trade that shakes up the Western Conference, which already saw the Houston Rockets trade for Chris Paul from the Los Angeles Clippers.
As for signings, Blake Griffin is sticking around in Los Angeles, as he’ll sign a maximum contract to stay. That took one of the biggest free agents off the board.
With everything going on, the Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to everything going on in the NBA. What did they have to say?
The San Antonio Spurs just might be the fifth best team in the Western Conference.

Judging by everyone’s reactions, it’s been all about the Western Conference on Friday night. It’s taking over, with swinging deals for some of the Eastern Conference’s top players, like George. Players already in the West are jumping around, too, like Chris Paul’s trade to the Houston Rockets.

As for the Spurs, there’s nothing from them so far. That may change once 12:01 a.m. ET hits, despite the flurry of rumored moves that became public. This could be anyone from Rudy Gay to Mike Dunleavy, or even George Hill.
San Antonio may not form a superteam, especially as all these big name players change teams. However, they could turn toward its own free agents and sign smaller names to fill out the roster. That won’t sound splashy, but is a potential alternative for this organization.
Free agency is only beginning for the Spurs and the other 29 teams. What will happen next?
