Coach Popovich Wanted To Draft Scot Pollard Over Tim Duncan
What a difference a draft pick would have made. Sure-fire Hall of Fame coach Gregg Popovich, would certainly not have experienced the success he has if he would have made this decision. The crazy thing about this is we would be lumping coach Pop in with the rest of the terrible coaches and general managers that have surfaced over the NBA.
Check out the tweet:
S.A. @Spurs GM R.C. Buford on drafting Tim Duncan: “Popovich had an affinity for Scot Pollard of Kansas. We had to talk him off that ledge.”
