San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is quite the character. Whether it be his epic interviews with the media, his sarcastic approach to coaching, or his surly demeanor when things aren’t going well for the Spurs, there is no question Pop is one interesting cat.
But when it comes to calling a timeout, Pop gets very animated, literally!
During San Antonio’s recent game against the Houston Rockets, the Spurs were storming back from a huge deficit. The crowd was into it, the Spurs were fighting clawing back, and during a critical moment during the Spurs comeback, Pop desperately was trying to call a timeout.
And by “desperate,” I mean he was excitedly jumping, flailing his arms, shouting, and even getting on the court trying to call a timeout.
Check out Pop getting one hell of a workout, and perhaps the most he has had in recent years, trying to get a timeout.
