Gregg Popovich

Gregg Popovich is a legend. Not only for his 1,150 career wins, but also for his sarcastic comments and antics. (And more recently, his political and social comments as well).

And he certainly wasn’t laughing at the final score, with the Grizzlies beating the Spurs 105-94. San Antonio still holds the lead in the series at 2-1.
