Stephen Jackson and San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich have had quite the interesting relationship over the years as Jackson has had multiple different tenures with Spurs. Even going back as far as the 2003 NBA season.
But things didn’t go well between the two last year, as Jackson was released after issues over playing time. Reportedly he wanted the minutes the aging Manu Ginobli was getting and Pop was just now willing to do so.
That’s why the match-up between the Clippers and Spurs was semi-interesting on Monday. It actually turned out to be funny when Gregg Popovich and Stephen Jackson actually did meet after the game.
