Former Air Force basketball player Antoine Hood signed a contract with the San Antonio Spurs on Dec. 10 and is currently in training camp with the team. Hood, a captain in the Air Force reserves, was a member of the Denver Nuggets during training camp in 2006 and appeared in three preseason games that year.
This shortened NBA season is going to be at a frantic pace and not to mention, the new schedule isn't going to be kind on any team.
But as training camp is underway and the San Antonio Spurs gear up for their first preseason game versus the Houston Rockets, one player Spurs fans should keep an eye on is Tony Parker.
Parker has been on the court pretty much all offseason and...

Sure San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker may have fame, three NBA championship rings, All-Star appearances, and adored by the entire country of France but you know he finally made it on the map when he was featured as the "Daily Double" on the game show Jeopardy.However, the answer had to revolve around two things Parker might want to forget -- his divorce from actress...
Congratulations to Gary Neal, who came up with maybe the most creative injury of the early season.
