Gregg Popovich is known for his ability to deliver some amusing post-game interviews and he stepped up to the plate Monday night. Manu Ginobili had a pretty tough game, shooting 5-20 from the field, but ended up making the game-winning shot at the end of double-overtime.
After the game, Popovich attended to his post-game press conference duties, and was asked about how his emotions towards his Argentinian veteran changed when he made the big-time shot. Pop answered with the following:
“I went from trading him on the spot, to wanting to cook him breakfast tomorrow. That’s the truth.”
Well played, Pop.
