Gregg Popovich answers sideline reporter with seven seconds of silence

I don’t think Gregg Popovich is as crusty as he appears during his in-game interviews. Not anymore, at least.

Popovich’s combativeness with sideline reporters has become a thing, and he seems to enjoy playing it up.

But after staring at David Aldridge for seven seconds, an eternity on live television, the Spurs coach eventually gave reasonably thoughtful answers – at least considering that he was in the middle of coaching a game.
