Gregg Popovich Can Have Fun

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Part of the fun in seeing a team on the way to a championship is seeing the coach have to make good on the promises he’s made to his players along the way as a motivational tactic. Sometimes this means getting a tattoo, and sometimes it might mean getting a weird haircut. And sometimes it might just mean letting loose and dancing like a maniac.

Look, we all know Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is a serious person … or at least likes to present himself as such. Yet he makes jokes, as we see game after game in his interviews with the media, both between quarters and postgame…

But when it’s time to get down, Popovich can, apparently, get down and cut loose, as we can see from this brief GIF of Pop dancing during the Spurs victory parade following the 1999 NBA Finals.


After beating Memphis last night, the Spurs are back in The Finals, and just four wins away from another title. Which means we might just be four wins away from getting to see Pop dancing with the stars yet again.
