Watch: Gregg Popovich flashes handles, jumper at Team USA practice
Gregg Popovich may be 70 years old, but he can still give these youngbloods buckets.
Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell posted a video to his Instagram Story on Monday of the USA Basketball coach busting out a behind-the-back dribble before splashing a pull-up jumper. Check it out:

Popovich, who has coached the San Antonio Spurs since 1996, was actually quite the player back in the day for the United States Air Force Academy, where he attended college from 1966 to 1970. He served as the basketball team’s leading scorer and captain during his senior year and even earned an invitation to the US Olympic Basketball Team trials in 1972.
Though Popovich’s game is impressive, he is not the only NBA head coach that we have seen stunt on us with his handles.
