Gregg Popovich Perfectly Trolls Media Once Again


Gregg Popovich has been the San Antonio Spurs for 22-straight years now, and it is safe to say that he’s one of the most respected coaches in the league.

He has led the Spurs to a winning record in each of his 21 full seasons as a head coach, and led the Spurs to all five of their NBA titles. But Popovich is currently facing what may be his hardest challenge as a coach – reinventing the San Antonio Spurs after two decades of Duncan, Manu and Parker.

Thankfully though, this hasn’t stopped him from being his old-self when it comes to answering questions by the media.

Before last night’s matchup between the Spurs and Nuggets, Pop was asked about how Nikola Jokic is “revolutionizing” big men in the NBA. His response:


“When I think of revolution, I think of people like Che Guevara, Ivan Illich, Lenin… I don’t really think of Jokic as quite a revolutionary. So I think you’re a bit hyperbolic there.”
