Gregg Popovich hugs Jeff Van Gundy during sideline interview (VIDEO)


The highlight of any nationally televised Spurs game for us at home — and the great terror of all sideline reporters — is interviewing Gregg Popovich. You could get terse, cutting one-word answers if your question comes off as banal, or if the Spurs are struggling.

Jeff Van Gundy got the short straw Wednesday and had to do the interview — and he got a hug.

Probably didn’t hurt that the Spurs were up 20 on their way to coasting in to a win over the Mavericks.
