When asked Tuesday if he’s seen improvement from Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said he didn’t know because he doesn’t watch much film, something he learned from former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. “I don’t study much, I learned that from Jerry Sloan,” he said. “I asked him one time, ‘How much film do you watch?’ and he said, ‘None.’ I said ‘What do you mean?’ and he said, ‘That’s what my assistants do.’ I took that philosophy from that day on. You’re much better worrying about what you do (than the opponent).” Later, when asked if he’d read a certain article about a basketball player, Popovich replied, “You think I read much of that stuff? I read nothing about sports — it’s boring.”
