Gregg Popovich had must-read advice for Mike Budenholzer in NBA Finals

Gregg Popovich

Gregg Popovich had some must-read advice for one of his former assistant coaches.

Mike Budenholzer worked for the San Antonio Spurs from 1996-2013, mostly as an assistant under Popovich. He left to become the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks, and then he became the head coach of Milwaukee in 2018. Now he has his Bucks in the NBA Finals and was seeking advice from Pop, who has won five NBA championships.

But Pop wasn’t too helpful. Budenholzer joked Monday that Pop told him he would have to figure things out on his own.

Yep, thanks for the advice, Pop.

Pop’s message probably wasn’t communicated to Budenholzer in a spiteful manner. Maybe Pop was suggesting that adjustments need to be made on the fly and on a case-by-case basis.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals will be played on Tuesday in Phoenix.
