Head coach Greg Popovich currently holds the title belt for my favorite current head coach in the NBA as well as my favorite interview to watch other than maybe Peyton Manning and Robert Griffin III. Pop is certainly the surliest of the three, but he can be a big sweetie to those who know him well. I’m sure he gave the Air Force women’s team plenty to think about and they are quite lucky to be able to hear his words. Shout out to the Spurs for tweeting this below.

Coach Pop was probably right at home with the Spurs doing their training camp at Air Force, because believe he is an alum. There is also the David Robinson military connection, and the whole Spurs organization gears a lot of effort towards our troops near and far.
Pop admitted recently that he has thought about game 6 every day, and we will see if the nightmares remain after opening tip off. Still cannot believe that Tim Duncan bunny floater did not go down, but sometime the basketball gods just say no. It was LeBron’s time, and after all that man any success he achieves is well deserved.
Duncan is still in the league though, and still dangerous. We will have to see if Pop has redemption in mind.
