Gregg Popovich loves giving reporters a hard time regardless of circumstance. He’s notoriously difficult to deal with during in-game interviews, and you better give him a good question during news conferences otherwise he’ll chew you up and spit you out.
One poor sap learned that lesson after the Spurs blew out the Thunder 117-89 in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday night.
The reporter asked Popovich to explain why there have been so many blowouts in the series. Pop, dumbfounded, asked if the reporter was serious. The reporter then played along and told Pop he wasn’t getting paid very much, which actually made Pop chuckle.
As a great twist showing how much of a jerk Pop can be, the reporter supposedly asked the same question to Thunder coach Scott Brooks and actually got a long response. Pop just loves being a chief ballbuster.
