Gregg Popovich Gave a Very Gregg Popovich Press Conference (Video)
Gregg Popovich has a pretty terrific relationship with the media. I mean, it sucks if you’re in the media, but if you’re a fan of awkward exchanges and thinly-veiled disdain, it’s gold.
So it’s my pleasure to say that Popovich returned to playoff form with his postgame press conference following a Game 1 loss to the Clippers on Sunday.
He basically just agreed with everything the press said, and provided one-word answers. He wasn’t openly antagonistic or anything. I just think he doesn’t know how to answer many of the questions that the reporters pose to him. And he’s not the type of guy to intentionally provide a juicy sound byte either, no matter how hard you try.
Here’s the press conference, which reminds us that Gregg Popovich vs. the press is always good for a laugh.
