Sergio Rodriguez Gomez (born June 12, 1986 in Tenerife, Canary Islands) is a Spanish professional basketball player. He is a member of the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association. His nickname is "Spanish Chocolate", an homage to flashy NBA player Jason "White Chocolate" Williams and which was acquired after the junior European tournament in which Rodríguez displayed his spectacular passing and ball-handling abilities.

Prior to joining the Trail Blazers, Rodriguez was chosen to play for the 2004 World Junior Select team to play against the best high school players at the Nike Hoop Summit, located in the United States. Before joining the NBA, Rodríguez also played professional basketball at the senior club level for CB Estudiantes of the Spanish ACB league, in which he played a final against Barcelona FC in 2003–04 season and won the ACB Rising Star Award for the 2004–05 season.
