Gregg Popovich Rumors

One year, Popovich asked Kobe if he should run a full practice or run the guys easy ahead of the All-Star Game. The ASG itself is never full speed. It’s always just guys dunking and showing off. But of course Kobe, who is notorious for practicing inhumanly hard, told Pop to run them. “Do a real practice because I want to see what the hell goes on in San Antonio, so you’ve got to do all the real stuff. The guys were all looking around like, ‘What the hell?’ Tim just looked at me like, ‘You’re killing me.’”
Popovich reacted with a shake of his head and a smirk, asking “What’d I do?” to injured Spurs star Tim Duncan. “He was in my vision, but I did not yell at him,” said Mejri, who was surprised to see his Twitter mentions flooded after the Mavs’ blowout loss. “He is one of the greatest coaches in the league, so I don’t think it’s a good idea to yell at him. I never did that in my life. “I did not yell at their bench. I had no problem with nobody, but I was excited about the dunk. You can ask their coach if I said something bad, but I did not.”
