NBA training camps are starting up this week, which means it’s time for lots of relatively useless soundbites about what great shape everyone is in and how good everyone’s jump shot looks. This is a natural environment for the notoriously salty Gregg Popovich to be as cranky as possible in, and that’s exactly what it looked like he was doing at the start of this interview with NBA TV’s Jared Greenberg.
But this Pop interview comes with a twist! Turns out he was just fucking with Greenberg, who handles himself very well and even gets a hug for his troubles. Maybe Pop’s going soft on us.
