You can always count on Gregg Popovich to keep it real.

The San Antonio Spurs coach apparently gives Boris Diaw extra minutes when the team is leading so the big man can lose some weight.

"Sometimes we’re up 30, and he's like, 'I’m just going to leave you on the court so you can lose some weight,'" Diaw told Sports Illustrated's Andrew Sharp (via Extra Mustard).

Never change, Pop.
