A well made doc on Pop and his hyper inflated ego
Will have to watch all of this, only about 5 minutes so far. 1st thought …. “he is who we thought he is”? A jerk? Sounds like a well done expose.
Doc is not the greatest coach of all time. End of story.
Vogel's no better but one of his attributes is his humility. He always deflects compliments and accepts blame. Respectful. The team likes and respects him. I'll always be a fan of his.
I don't care for pops politics or for that matter politics being mixed with sports. I watch sports because I love them, I dislike politics. Steve Kerr also fits into this category
Good watch, for the TLDR’s:
Pop was incredibly fortunate to have Duncan.
My problem with Popovich is his whining when the Lakers would make moves. He sticks his nose in s*** he should stay out of. Started in 2008 after the Pau Gasol trade. And continued it when the Lakers were making moves to get Chris Paul.
Pop and Belichick both share the same good fortune. They arguably had the two greatest team players in sports history.
Now, no one argues that Magic is the greatest team player in any sport ever. But Brady and Duncan in the last two decades, no doubt.
I would put Bill Russell in that conversation as well.
