If you watched the San Antonio Spurs take on the Houston Rockets, you are to be commended for your dedication to the oversight of the construction business. There were so many bricks between both ball clubs that you could build a palatial estate the size of Disney World. The defensive effort was there and an attempt at a coherent offense was made but missed shots, silly turnovers, and missed assignments caught up with the youngest team in the league by game's end.

In case you missed it, San Antonio fell to their interstate rival 92-83. Amid a 17-game losing streak, fans are relegated to finding a faint light in the suffocating darkness of ineptitude the team continues to live in. But if you are struggling to locate the shine, there's no need to fear; Air Alamo is here.

Victor Wembanyama's injury resilience training looks to be working

If you're a regular Joe headed to your Gold's Gym for a hoop session with your friends and this happens to you, you're usually out three weeks. The rolled ankle in the NBA will often result in a trip to the locker room, with a return made possible by taping the ankle so tight that it would have been made fun of in high school. LeBron James comes to mind when thinking of players who have had similar occurrences without needing help from the medical staff.

It is difficult to know if the things Wemby and his camp have been doing to prepare him for a long career are working without incidents to test the theory. 22 games into the season, the 7'4 rookie has only missed one game while averaging 30 minutes per contest. He spoke of his desire to play as many games as possible prior to beginning his NBA career, and he is doing just that. This latest display is the basketball gods whispering to all Spurs fans, "He's going to be okay."
