Gregg Popovich blasé about coach of month, unless there is a car with it

Gregg Popovich had the line of the day Monday.

Popovich was the Western Conference Coach of the Month for January — he already had that honor 15 times in his career (which seems a little low, but it’s more than any other NBA coach in history). Popovich was asked about it and was indifferent... unless the NBA wants to throw in a Kia. Fro Jeff McDonald of the Express-News:

I’m with Popovich here, the league should throw in a car. Why not? It would make the race more interesting.

If they gave Popovich a car, would he just trade it for a good case of Bordeaux?
