HOUSTON - Going back to Houston, Texas over a week ago on All-Star Saturday night in the Toyota Center, there sat Houston Rockets legendary player and coach, Rudy Tomjanovich.
Along with Yao Ming, Clyde Drexler, and a few other former NBA players, Tomjanovich was answering questions with the media that Saturday night following the All-Star events.

Brett Brown has been on the San Antonio bench for 12 years now, coaching under Gregg Popovich during a run of organizational stability that is rare in this day and age, and perhaps one of the biggest reasons the Spurs have been able to sustain such a high level of success over the last decade and a half.
Chris Finch has been more of a nomad, bouncing from gig to gig on a journey...
With coach Mike Krzyzewski retiring from Team USA basketball, the organization needs a replacement. There's some names being thrown around, but there's only one coach that deserves the nod.

The NBA trade deadline has come and gone and the San Antonio Spurs didn't make a move for your favorite player on the trade block (one day Derrick Williams, one day).

March 1st is the deadline for players...
Thomas Robinson's path to a starting job may not be as easy as first thought. Rookie Donatas Motiejunas got his first start, played 26 minutes and posted a nice stat line: 13 points (4-of-9 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws), a three, seven rebounds, five assists and a steal.
Motiejunas did something Robinson couldn't -- stretch the floor (a not-so-secret weakness...

Phoenix Suns' Marcin "The Polish Hammer" Gortat lived up to his nickname Sunday versus the Spurs and the victim was Tiago Splitter.
Late in the second quarter, Gortat got the ball off a pass from the top of the key and rolled to the rim and only Splitter was standing in his way. But just one man isn't enough to stop Gortat to drop "The Polish Hammer"...
