Watch: Gregg Popovich has funny exchange with cameraman
Gregg Popovich had a funny exchange with a cameraman prior to the San Antonio Spurs’ game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.
The Spurs coach was getting ready to do a pregame interview in what appeared to be a tunnel that didn’t have great lighting, so a camera person had a light on to film. Pop asked if the light was necessary because he preferred not to be interrogated if it wasn’t.
Funny Gregg Popovich moment before the game at MSG.
Pop: Do you need that?
Reporter: Mumbles something about dimming the light.
Pop: Well, if you need it, you need it, but if you don't, I'd rather not be interrogated. I didn't do it. I probably did pic.twitter.com/YtWW2gTfek

For someone with a reputation of being a difficult interview,that was a funny and lighthearted moment.
He was probably a lot more cheerful before his team lost 130-118 to a Knicks squad that had previously lost 18 straight home games.
