Like a fine wine—which he knows a little something aboutSan Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich just seems to get better with age. 

And funnier. So much funnier.

Pop's Spurs fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals Sunday night, 106-97. After the game, there was some concern about the health of Manu Ginobili, who played sparingly down the stretch after tweaking an old injury.

For those who aren't clear about the skipper's veiled dig: Serge Ibaka was believed to be out for the playoffs with a calf injury before returning for Game 3 and helping spur his comrades to victory.

Stay gold, Pop.
