Stephon Marbury wants to play for San Antonio.

"Who wouldn't want to play for San Antonio?" Marbury said. "To play with Tim Duncan, who would complain about that? That's a great organization, they win championships. They have a nice system and I like Popovich as coach. I can play one or the two. If I was a free agent, yeah."

Is this a "I'm getting older in my career, now give me a damn ring" crisis?

And what's up with everyone wanting to come down to south Texas?

Former Spur Malik Rose told WOAI-TV's Don Harris that he'd love to play for the Spurs next season after he becomes a free agent. There's also been rumored trade-talk for Eddy Curry to head to the West and join the Spurs roster.

And even Mario Chalmers (who was selected 34th by the Minnesota Timberwolves but traded to Miami in the 2008 NBA Draft) is fond of the place he almost called home.

Chalmers was expected to go to the Spurs, who, instead select I.U.P.U.I (Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis) graduate George Hill with their 26th Draft pick.

"That's like a home to me, being in San Antonio, so its always good to be back," said Chalmers. "I was fortunate enough to have two workouts with the Spurs, but, like they say, everything happens for a reason."
