Doris Burke asked the always kind and cuddly Spurs coach Gregg Popovich about his strategy when it comes to his objectives surrounding LeBron James in Game 2 on Sunday night. Good ol’ Pop thought it was funny, so he laughed in Burke’s face before revealing his super secret strategy to containing LeBron.

It was vintage Pop and something sideline reporters have come to expect, but it apparently rattled […]
A couple observations about women getting their shots in sports media:
