Authorities say former San Antonio Spurs player Alvin Robertson has been arrested after cutting off a GPS monitor while out on bond in a 2009 case. The Bexar County Sheriff's Office says 52-year-old Robertson was arrested Monday afternoon at a San Antonio apartment complex. Officials say he'd been on the run since Jan. 5 after cutting off the monitor. Sheriff's officials say Robertson, a former NBA All-Star whose career ended in 1996, was out on bond in a 2009 case in which he was initially charged with trafficking of a person less than 18 for prostitution. He'd been released from jail Dec. 12 and was required to wear the monitor. USA Today Sports

Obama peppered his remarks with punchlines, making light of 38-year-old captain Tim Duncan’s graying hair, Popovich’s at-times brusque relationship with the media and the coach’s penchant for resting veteran players. “I was thinking about sending the vice president to this event so I could stay fresh for the State of the Union,” Obama joked. “With all due respect,” Popovich retorted, “when I sit stars, I get fined.” San Antonio Express-News

Obama made note of the international makeup of the Spurs’ roster, which boasts an NBA-record nine foreign-born players, calling them “the U.N. of basketball.” He also praised the Spurs for good deeds done in the San Antonio community, including work with the food bank, literacy programs and veterans groups. Before heading to the White House, the Spurs spent the morning visiting wounded warriors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. San Antonio Express-News
