Deaths Rumors

Shaquille O’Neal: One time me and Pop had a little altercation, and you know my father’s a military man (like Popovich), and he called me right away and said don’t you ever disrespect Pop again. He told me a story, story goes like this: I was in San Antonio in 1989, couldn’t afford a pair of 18/19 shoes. My father drove over to the Spurs, him and Pop hit it off right away, Pop gave him a couple pairs of shoes, my father brought them back to the house. So Pop, I’m praying for you brother. I’m sorry you’re going through this.”
Erin Popovich, the wife of San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, died early Wednesday, the team announced. She was 67 and had been battling an illness for an extended period. The couple had been married for four decades and had two children — Jill and Mickey — as well as two grandchildren. “We mourn the loss of Erin,” Spurs general manager R.C. Buford said. “She was a strong, wonderful, kind, intelligent woman who provided love, support and humor to all of us.”
