For someone who doesn’t like to talk to the media Gregg Popovich has some of the best quotes in the NBA. Before thursday nights game against the Bulls, Pop was asked if he had thought Tom Thibodeau had lost his team .
“He’s not gonna lose any team,” Popovich said before the game. “I think you guys just have to have stories. So somebody loses a few games, there’s got to be a reason. I guess that’s the one that was picked. Sometimes players listen to me. Timmy [Duncan] stopped listening to me a long time ago. I don’t even coach him. You guys think I’m kidding. He just plays. I talk to him once in a while, but sometimes some guys don’t want to hear it.
“But as far as the team and being lost and that kind of thing, that’s not what’s happening here.”
Being the greatest power forward of all time will give you that type of leeway.
