Spurs Changing Party?

The fiscally conservative brass of the San Antonio Spurs may be on the verge of changing their 'political party' affiliation by acquiring the big spending contract of Vince Carter. Here's why they should consider it. The main reason why they should pull the trigger has to do with father time. Duncan and Manu are both in their early thirties so realistic championship quest are 1-3 years tops. By adding VC into the mix now, the likelihood of another Riverwalk celebration happening in June during this 3 year period becomes a real possibility. Even though the salaries of Duncan, Ginobili, Parker and Carter would consume 2/3s of the Spurs cap space, there is a way to field a decent team around these stars through 2011. I will address this point in my next post.
