PLAYERS: Gregg Popovich
During last night's highly anticipated Thunder-Spurs matchup in OKC, it was the clash of the Western Conference's top-two teams, but also another shared moment for Gregg Popovich and TNT's Craig Sager. Pop, who is notorious for being rather short with his answers while looking annoyed with reporters, treated us to another "classic Pop" moment with Sager. Well, enough of me yapping, check out this goodness (h/t Project Spurs). [follow]

Pops usual self during Craig Sager interview

Spurs’ Gregg Popovich ‘concerned’ about Tony Parker

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker wasn’t himself Thursday night when the team took on the Oklahoma City Thunder. He’s been banged up for much of the season – dealing with a bevy of injuries – and coach Gregg Popovich is “very concerned,” according to Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk.After scoring two points on 1-of-6 shooting over the first three quarters of Thursday’s...

Parker's latest injury a concern for Popovich

A struggling San Antonio Spurs team watched their season-long lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder dissipate to a half-game margin to control the top seed in the Western Conference.  But the top seed, no matter how advantageous it may be to secure, has never been the aim of the Spurs or their head coach Gregg Popovich.    There is enough respect in all eight eventual...

Gregg Popovich Tortures Sideline Reporters, Chapter 49

When sideline reporters draw the San Antonio Spurs assignment, do they try to call in sick to avoid the between quarters interview with Gregg Popovich?  Are they resigned to the fact that it's going to be the most painful, most awkward, most torturous minute of their day?  Are they thinking of banding together and fight back?  It almost seems like during tonight's game...

Gregg Popovich Trolls In Another Classic Interview With Craig Sager.

These will never get old. Coach Pop gave him exactly 9 words after two seemingly long, well thought out questions by Craig Sager. You could tell Craig really put in the effort to ask good questions. Okay, maybe not the first one, that one was doomed for failure before the words even left his mouth. I know this is all good and fun, but I just can’t help to think that there is genuine...

Gregg Popovich gave Craig Sager another brief interview (Video)

Gregg Popovich stonewalling Craig Sager is a TNT tradition just like those great Photoshop pictures of Charles Barkley. Anytime the San Antonio Spurs play on TNT on Thursday nights, you know an uncomfortable interview between Pop and Sager is coming. That certainly held true this week. After the first quarter of the Spurs-Oklahoma City Thunder game, Sager attempted to ask the Spurs...

Video: TNT's Craig Sager gets 'Pop'd' during Spurs-Thunder game

It may have been a tough loss versus the Thunder last night in Oklahoma for the San Antonio Spurs but at least head coach Gregg Popovich gave us another one of his classic sideline interviews. Needless to say, with the Spurs down 11 points to the Thunder, Pop was not in the best of moods to discuss the game when TNT's Craig Sager had the unenviable task to talk to Pop. ...

Popovich: It was a pathetic performance

The San Antonio Spurs barely escaped the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night in a 99-97 contest at the AT&T Center. The Spurs were without Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili while the Hawks sat Al Horford and Josh Smith.   This gave San Antonio a huge advantage in the paint with Tim Duncan playing against Atlanta's reserves and he didn't disappoint with a 31 point...

Gregg Popovich says Jacque Vaughn has 'done a great job'

At the end of Wednesday's loss to the Spurs, Jacque Vaughn did something a bit different.
