Never a dull moment with Gregg Popovich. Here he is having fun with some reporters at practice recently, while the Heat/Pacers series was still going on. The Spurs coach is quick and biting, until he’s floored by a question about whether or not he watched Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. (If the video doesn’t start at 1:40, fast-forward to that moment.)
Among the subplots for the NBA Finals – who defends LeBron, can the Heat stop Tony Parker, the Wade/Ginobili old man battle – Popovich’s terse sideline interviews has to be near the top. Who said the Spurs are boring?
