San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has an unlikely fan in X Beautiful, an Israeli rapper. He adores the reserved coach enough to make a music video for him, featuring an old man in an Oxford University t-shirt—Arik Henig, a famous television producer—murmuring "He wants a nasty game" (I think that's what he's saying) for the chorus.

But is the titular coach aware of the video? Dan McCarney of Spurs Nation found out the answer from Spurs player Stephen Jackson:

"He was showing some film of me messing up, getting on me real hard. I was like, ‘You know what Pop, I don't even want to play basketball. I'd rather do this. Kick it!' And they played two of my videos. And Pop was like, ‘You know what? Don't worry about it Jack. I got my own video.' It was pretty cool."


For everyone's enjoyment, Jackson should team up with X Beautiful for a remix. We need more Gregg Popovich raps.
