Video: Gregg Popovich remains king of in-game interviews



With Phil Jackson and Stan Van Gundy now off the sidelines (Van Gundy is now with us at NBC), Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is now the undisputed champion of the in-game interview.

Witness David Aldridge’s attempt last night, when he mistakenly asks if Pops is “happy” with the Spurs ball movement in a game his team went on to win (in dramatic fashion). Classic.

TNT sports reporters have to be cringing when they approach Pop for their short ‘time-out’ interview. They know Pop is a tough interview (tough being very generous here) and they know the questions have to be quick. But Pop will punish them anyways, just ask Craig Sager, who probably asked to be reassigned to another game. Pop is just 'happy' to be there.

I think it gets the viewers attention a lot more than the other bland responses.

The in-game interviews are pointless. It's obvious what a team needs to do to win a game. There's no mind blowing wisdom to be heard there, and they certainly aren't going to get into real x's and o's in a 30 second interview.

Ever notice how if there's a female broadcaster, they'll send her to do the interview? Pop is much less cantankerous if it's a woman doing the interviewing. I think he's too chivalrous to be mean to a lady.

I think the only difference with a woman interviewing, Pop might have a smile on his face.
