Gregg Popovich Will Answer Any Two Questions from Charles Barkley

Gregg Popovich is a stickler for the rules. 

The man who laughed in the face of the NBA commissioner by sitting all of his stars for a marquee matchup, was back causing a stir during an in-game interview. 

SportsGrid spotted this moment of awkwardness shared between San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and TNT analyst (and NBA legend) Charles Barkley. 

The biggest NBA news from Thursday night wasn't that the Spurs barely lost to the Miami Heat (105-100), it was the fact Pop decided to sit all his stars, which angered David Stern

Slightly below the silliness of a feud that has already been blown well out of proportion, landed this trivial exchange that was rather hilarious. 

Pop is known to bring the heat when it comes to in-game interviews, and he didn't disappoint last night as Chuck lobbed a couple of softball questions at him. 

Apparently, sideline reporters are only granted two questions during the game, something Barkley nor I knew before last night's game. 

So it was a shock when Pop put a quick stop to all the meaningless banter, and we will never know who that one guy Barkley was talking about. 

Some things are best left unsolved.
