Gregg Popovich gets real mad, real ejected (video)
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich now has as many technical fouls as all his players combined.
There are multiple things going on there. He can be a bit of a hothead, and his players clearly trust that he has their back, allowing them to focus on basketball while Popovich works the officials.
This tirade shows the, um, passion that earns players’ respect – though San Antonio blew its lead after Popovich’s ejection, falling 121-116 to the Pelicans.
