Spurs Gregg Popovich Still Grumpy, Doesn't Appreciate David Aldridge

Happy? Happy? Gregg Popovich feels that's a clown question, bro. 

Thursday night gave us further proof the NBA, in all its glory, is very much back. Tony Parker ended up hitting a game-winner at the buzzer, but that was hardly the only explosive moment of the night. 

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was back to playing the part of grumpy old man during an in-game interview with David Aldridge, who we are obligated to say reminds us of Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Carlton asks Pop a pure throw-away question, exactly what every coach is asked during a game. The answer is always a cliche and hardly ever interesting. 

That's hardly the case when Pop has the mic, and he doesn't disappoint this time around. 

Aldridge is really interested to hear the coach's thoughts on ball movement and whether Popovich was "happy" with it. It was a question we all wanted to know...I mean, right?

The thing is, Pop has no clue what "happy" means. The man has been pleasantly resting in a emotional state that lies between completely enraged and calmly frustrated. 

Happy, well, is something for all the other coaches who skip down the street licking lollipops. 

Instead, Pop goes off on Aldridge for this mythical word "happy" that he may have once heard possibly in passing, maybe one Halloween when he went as a businessman when he was a kid. 

It all ends with Aldridge crying. 

We wish.
