Popovich’s wife doesn’t like how he treats courtside reporters

It’s one of my favorite parts of the Spurs nationally televised games — some poor sideline reporter like Craig Sager has to try and interview Gregg Popovich between quarters. And Popovich wants nothing to do with it. He is condescending and annoyed.

Journalists in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, but I do love watching those interviews.

I’m not alone, if you judge by twitter reactions. A lot of people look forward to the Popovich interviews.

But not his wife.

Popovich was on 790 the Ticket in Miami with Dan LeBatard and talked about hearing from his wife after those interviews (via Sports Radio Interviews).
“I know. I’m a jerk. I’m going to go ahead and admit it publically to the whole world. Tell me what to do. What should I do?… I don’t know how to answer so sue me for being stupid and not having the answers to the questions. (Host: Keep doing it, it’s entertaining.) It entertains everybody but my wife. When I get home and she says ‘geez why are you so mean? You’re a jerk, people hate you.’ I go I’m sorry honey, I have to do better next time.”
“And there’s no exaggeration. Did you see that guy honey? Did you see him? All you have to do is see him and you know why I answered the way I did. (She says) ‘That’s no excuse, you’re a grown man. Show some maturity.’ I said ‘I can’t, I can’t do it.”
We all answer to someone. Even Gregg Popovich.

But he still should keep doing it.
