How unsettling is it to interview Gregg Popovich? It’s such a terrifying prospect that the ESPN announcers for the San Antonio Spurs-Utah Jazz game on Wednesday night actually flipped a coin to see who would be forced into the charade. Unfortunately for play-by-play announcer Dave Pasch, he lost the coin toss with Jon Barry and had to go through the routine.
It was actually quite amusing to watch Pasch go through the motions with Pop. He followed typical interview protocol by asking a follow-up question because of Pop’s terse response to the initial question about the team’s defense, and when he was getting ready to ask a question about a second subject matter — which was technically his third question — Pop informed him of the two-question limit.
Darn that Pop! That guy is so on top of things! It’s like he’s just counting his way down to two during the interviews. He actually reminds me of the clown from “Happy Gilmore.” No matter what you do, he’s always going to find a way to piss you off and laugh in your face:
