We all know the wrath that Gregg Popovich can bring unto sideline reporters, and TNT’s David Aldridge has to deal with it quite frequently. On Tuesday night, Aldridge had the pleasure of interviewing Pop with the San Antonio Spurs trailing the Oklahoma City Thunder 26-20 after the first quarter.
Popovich was actually in a better mood than expected. However, we didn’t get to see that until after he stared at Aldridge for about eight seconds when Aldridge asked him how his team played in the first quarter.
“This is live television,” Aldridge jokingly reminded Pop.
“That means I have to answer, right?” Popovich replied.
Pop then went on to give a fairly detailed assessment of how the Spurs started out by moving the ball well and then began committing turnovers. By Pop standards, the interview was actually quite wordy. He simply couldn’t resist making his boy Aldridge squirm a little first. After all, the two have had an up-and-down relationship in the past.
