Rick Carlisle pulls a Popovich in interview with Chris Broussard (Video)
Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle decided he wasn’t about divulge any useful information during an in-game interview with ESPN’s Chris Broussard on Wednesday night, so he did his best Gregg Popovich impression.
Carlisle responded to each of of Broussard’s questions with one word – “yes.” He then told Broussard, “this is my Popovich impersonation.”
The Mavs were losing by 14 points after the third quarter, which is when the interview took place, so that explains why Carlisle was so irritated. Maybe he would have had a different attitude had he known his team would beat the Houston Rockets 123-120 at the end of the night.
Anyway, that really wasn’t a bad Pop impersonation. It was actually pretty close. Here’s one of Pop’s interviews for comparison.
