There are many reasons to love the San Antonio Spurs.

They do things the "right" way; they have a roster full of nice guys who work hard; they've been able to rein in Stephen Jackson; they swoop in and steal unexpected talent all the time. They're solid.

They also have the funniest coach in the league, Gregg Popovich

Almost every reporter who has covered the league has a Pop story. His scrums will take you places you didn't expect, and you never know when he'll decide to flip the script and start interrogating you.

Popovich has provided us with plenty of no-nonsense clips over the years, but even when he's giving you a hard time, he's a good sport. Polite, even.

Check this clip from Spurs.com (via TBJ) of Popovich responding to a reporter asking if all of the Spurs' players will be traveling on their road trip. Popovich isn't answering, but he makes sure to tell the reporter that it's a fair question to ask; it's just not a question he's going to answer.

When you're used to dealing with stone-faced coaches trying to delicately dodge questions day after day, Popovich's approach is refreshing. 

 

P.S. Another easy reason to love the Spurs: They recognized the talent in Kawhi Leonard and are shaping him into one hell of a defender. That's exciting.
