They did it again.
San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, and TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager, created another classic and organic TV interview during last night’s preseason game against the Houston Rockets.
The two seem to have a chemistry that is unmatched in the annals of sideline interviews and I’m pretty sure we’ll see this one being replayed for years to come.

Nothing marks the return of NBA season quite like Gregg Popovich giving TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager a hard time during an interview between quarters. Since this was a preseason game, Pop took it kind of easy on Sager and actually answered his questions. But not before giving him a hard time about him having […]
It's that time of year again.
The NBA is gearing up for the start of the regular season and Gregg Popovich is up to his old tricks.
Before the start of the fourth quarter during the Spurs-Rockets game in San Antonio, Coach Pop gave TNT's Craig Sager another classic interview.
As the questions began, Pop asks, "This is the preseason, right? We've got to do this...
The San Antonio Spurs faced off against the Houston Rockets in yet another meaningless preseason game Thursday night. Except this one was broadcast nationally on TNT, which only means one thing: Gregg Popovich had to participate in a totally unnecessary mid-half interview, conducted by regular Coach Pop punching bag, Craig Sager (because America wouldn’t have it any other way,...
What better way to get ready for the launch of the 2013 season than with the return of NBA's version of The Odd Couple - Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager. Pop gives Sager a hard time for harrassing him with a mandatory between quarters interview during the preseason, and who can blame him? It's the preseason for cripes sake!
Gregg Popovich and Craig Sager met yet again for another unforgettable interview during the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets’ preseason matchup on Thursday. Sager is a league’s favorite sideline reporter, known for laid-back approach and “stylish” fashion sense. Popovich has never been the camera-happy type, and he makes sure everyone knows it. Come on Sager, you can...
Although the NBA season hasn’t officially started yet, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is already in midseason comedy form.

Gregg Popovich hassling reporters was fun at first. Now? Getting downright douchey. Preseason and all.

San Antonio Spurs coach Greg Popovich was in a rare, good mood during an in-game interview with Craig Sager. Then again, it was only an NBA preseason game.
If you thought Gregg Popovich’s treatment of NBA sideline reporters was bad, you haven’t seen anything. Think about how hard the San Antonio Spurs coach must be on his players. During an interview with ESPN’s SportsCenter, Spurs point guard Tony Parker admitted Popovich made him cry as a rookie. “Oh yeah,” Parker said when asked […]
Craig Sager and Gregg Popovich are back at it. Popovich, who has a track record of giving Sager a hard time during his in-game interviews, was no different during the Spurs’ preseason game Thursday, asking the sideline reporter, “We gotta do this in the preseason, are you kidding me?!”

Catch San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich on a good day and he seems like one of the most funny, charismatic people you’ll ever come across. Only problem? For about 363 days out of the year, he’s the exact opposite.
Spurs point guard Tony Parker knows this quite well and even admitted that Popovich made him cry a couple times during his rookie season in an interview with ESPN:
The King of NBA dry humor, Gregg Popovich, is at it again. He gives Sager his best Allen Iverson impersonation during their preseason interview.
Still my all time favorite Popovich moment is when he decides to hack shaq in the opening seconds of the NBA season after Shaq spent the entire summer complaining about Hack-a-Shaq.
Bring on the NBA!

San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich is a hard-nosed, no-nonsense kind of NBA coach. He tells it like it is and doesn't care if you are the star of the team or the last guy on the bench. Everyone gets equal treatment. Though I suspect this might be a shock to the system for a then 19-year old rookie point guard by the name of Tony Parker.
Being the floor leader is tough...
