Gregg Popovich calls Patty Mills a “Little Fat Ass”

San Antonio Spurs backup point guard Patty Mills is having the best season of his young NBA career this year.

San Antonio Spurs: Popovich preparing for playoffs

Well, the Spurs have lost two out of their last  three games.  To add to the atypical nature of this phenomenon, they were both against mediocre-at-best Eastern Conference teams.  Raise the pitchforks.
