As expected, the phrase “I want some nasty” has caught on quickly in San Antonio. When the Spurs erased a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter of Game 1 against the Thunder, they did so after Gregg Popovich was heard urging his players to dig deep and yelling “I want some nasty!” at them. The team responded by grinding out a huge victory, and a new catch phrase has been born.
As you can see from the photos above, the Spurs’ new slogan is already contagious. A fan was spotted wearing a shirt with Pop’s face on it and “I want some nasty” written across the front during San Antonio’s Game 2 win. The website Promo-SA.com is also selling shirts with the phrase on them for $20. The last time the Spurs lost, the Stanley Cup playoffs hadn’t even begun. Given their current winning streak, it’s safe to say everything Popovich says at the moment is solid gold.Google+
