The Spurs have run hot and cold this season, although they appear to be on the upswing. They've won three straight games to get back to .500 at 14-14.
While San Antonio has undergone numerous changes in recent years—the retirements of Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, losing Tony Parker as a free agent and trading Kawhi Leonard to Toronto—Popovich has remained a constant presence.
However, Popovich's time on the sideline may be running out. In June, ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the 69-year-old may retire after he coaches Team USA during the 2020 Olympics.
Since he took over as Spurs head coach early in 1996-97, Popovich's only losing season came in his first year. Along the way to his 1,211 wins, he's also led the franchise to five NBA titles and 21 straight playoff appearances.
