Why Do They Even Bother Interviewing Coach Popovich? (Video)
Gregg Popovich is arguably the best active coach in pro basketball. Inarguably, he is the worst interview. This guy makes Bill Belichick seem like a sweetheart in comparison. Coach Pop is notorious for destroying reporters with biting sarcasm and thinly-veiled ridicule in practically every press conference he’s ever given. You can tell that Pop genuinely despises talking to the media. During a break in Wednesday night’s Spurs-Mavericks blowout, Jeff Van Gundy seems to be terrified of Coach Pop.
At first I thought Pop was going to rip Gundy a new one, but ended up hugging the shell-shocked reporter. Is Pop finally softening up in his old age? Probably not. At all.
