Popovich Pranks Spurs With Israeli Rap Video
Gregg Popovich is known more for his stone cold personality toward reporters than he is for his sense of humor, and any one who has watched a Spurs game on TNT can attest to that. In the first act I’ve ever heard of Popovich actually being funny, he played a pretty great prank on his team.
Via My San Antonio, Stephen Jackson explained how the prank happened:
“He was showing some film of me messing up, getting on me real hard. I was like, ‘You know what Pop, I don’t even want to play basketball. I’d rather do this. Kick it!’ And they played two of my videos. And Pop was like, ‘You know what? Don’t worry about it Jack. I got my own video.’ It was pretty cool.”
If you don’t know, Stephen Jackson also has somewhat of a rap career going on, which is what he referenced when he talks about his videos. You can watch the video that Popovich played here:
I can only imagine how funny this must have been to experience first-hand. I guess Gregg Popovich has at least a little humor in him after all.
