Gregg Popovich Hosts Stand-Up Comedy Session After Epic Spurs Win

Jesse DorseyFeatured ColumnistMay 7, 2013

With the San Antonio Spurs stealing a 129-127 double-overtime win over the Golden State Warriors, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was in high spirits during the postgame press conference.

Popovich started things off with his usual curmudgeon act, completely dismissing a question about Kawhi Leonard's defense being the game's X-factor, claiming that he had no idea what any part of the question meant.

That, right there, is some classic Popovich.

Love you, Pop.

Pop went on to go through his range of emotions regarding Manu Ginobili and his possible game-ruining three-pointer, followed by his game-winning three-pointer.

Of course, this all came after Popovich joked around with David Aldridge after the third quarter with the Spurs in a 12-point hole, gibing Aldridge for only asking him a single question.

Perhaps this is a new Popovich that we're seeing. It's a Popovich who doesn't do his best to make reporters' knees knock together every time they're forced to ask him a question.

Now he's going to go on to be one of the league's nicest, most likable head coaches.

Sure, and maybe one of these days the Spurs are actually going to miss the playoffs.
