Quote of the day: Popovich compares Game 7 to the rack


“It’s torture. It’s hard to appreciate torture.”

—Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, when asked if he appreciates the magnitude of Game 7 in his pregame press conference.

Later tonight or tomorrow we will try to run video of his entire press conference, it was pure gold comedy. Not in the curmudgeonly way Pop can come off sometimes, but in the way his friends describe him as funny.
