Gregg Popovich to continue coaching after Tim Duncan retirement

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich told ESPN’s Sage Steele that he will continue coaching even after long-time Spurs Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili retire. Popovich said that he made a commitment to the newly signed LaMarcus Aldridge upon his arrival in San Antonio from the Portland Trail Blazers. “Signing LaMarcus [Aldridge], I had to make a commitment,” Popovich said. “I couldn’t say, ‘LaMarcus, we would love to sign you, see you later.’ So I committed to those guys and I committed to LaMarcus. So, I’ve got to fulfill my promise.”

Where Duncan really lets loose is in the hot-rod car culture. “This is just a different world, and I think that’s the fun part about it because I play with control and precision on the court, but out there it’s different playing with my cars,” he says. “I’m not really a flashy guy anywhere else—I don’t dress flashy or anything else—but I like to keep my cars nice and I like to customize them. I can do things a little flashier and a little faster, and with a little bit more thought. This is kind of the release part of basketball.”
