We're sitting in here, and I'm supposed to be the coach, and we in here talking about the preseason. I mean, listen, we're talking about the preseason, not a game, not the real game, we talking about the preseason. Not the season. Not, not ... Not the season that I go out there and die for and coach every game like it's my last. Not the season, but we're talking about the preseason, man. I mean, how silly is that? ... And we talking about the preseason. I know I'm supposed to be there. I know I'm supposed to lead by example... I know that... And I'm not.. I'm not shoving it aside, you know, like it don't mean anything. I know it's important, I do. I honestly do... But we're talking about the preseason,man. What are we talking about? The preseason? We're talking about the preseason, man.

Alright subby, stop it with the GRE words in the headline.  It is work to look those up, and if I wanted to work, I wouldn't be here on Fark.

Pop is just being a heel character with Craig at this point.

Is it just me, or has Pop lightened up a lot in recent years?  Or was the old crotchety man just his coaching character he plays?

They should say the same thing during the regular season.

"What, we have to this during the regular season now? We all know these games barely matter. shiat; we can be 38-44 and still see you in the post-season."

I find it hard to believe that he can't be a little more civil in those interviews. Everyone knows they're stupid, but it's in the contract.

He had a funny interview where he discusses how his wife implored him to be nicer in those interviews.

This is how I see it.

The ONLY thing cool about Craig Sager is his first name.

This was very tame by Pop standards. Also, if you watch closely right at the end, you can catch him smiling as he's turning away. Watching him troll reporters who ask stupid questions (like Sager's "toughest challenge" question in the clip) instead of giving canned coach answers just brightens my day. He still gives those (like his Marco Bellini answer), but he doesn't just spew coach-speak.

When did the Spurs move to the Eastern Conference?

My all time favourite Popovich troll.

Popovich has a wicked sense of humor. Back in the 80's or early 90's when he was an assistant for the Spurs he and Sean Elliot had a segment doing movie reviews. They were hilarious. Don't know that they knew crap about the actual movies but they really had the snark down.
