Let’s All Enjoy This Clip of Gregg Popovich Going Crazy for a Timeout (Video)
The San Antonio Spurs’ Gregg Popovich is really good at coaching basketball. That’s why his team has won four NBA Championships in five trips to the finals since 1999.
What Popovich is not good at is hiding his emotions. The guy cannot stand talking to members of the media—even guys he likes—and he doesn’t even try to hide it. He’s basically the most difficult interview in sports.
Of course, Popovich also tends to let his emotions flow freely on the sidelines. Sometimes that means berating officials. And sometimes that just means jumping up and down like a crazy person while trying to call a timeout.
Speaking of which…
Yep, that’s Popovich being Popovich during Game 5 between the Spurs and Mavericks last night.
You gotta love it.
