This NBA boss is the worst coach to interview ever

Published Add your comment

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is one of the most difficult coaches to interview in the history of basketball.

Yet again he provided this fact to be right last night after the final regular season game for the Spurs. 

The game saw San Antonio go down to defeat by 113-100 against the Los Angeles Lakers, which meant the Spurs ended the campaign with 62-20 record. 

Post-game, journalists gathered in the press room eagerly awaiting their opportunity to speak to Popovich about the playoffs. 

However, Popovich declined to take questions after the loss to the Lakers. Instead, he provided journalists with a short written statement lasting only 46 words.

It read, " We had a good regular season and now the postseason starts. The first game is at noon on Sunday and we will see who it is. The two teams that are playing right now so I am going to go watch them. You guys take care."

Arguably, this statement gives this press conference the label of the most Gregg Popovich press conference ever.

For some journalists they will have found this funny and probably not expected to get much out of him after the game.

But for some he will have left them a big whole to fill for their copy, either online or in the paper.

So this interview further proves that he's the most awkward coach to interview ever.
