Gregg Popovich can get out his checkbook and write one to the league, because a fine is coming.
For the second time in a week, the Spurs coach was ejected after arguing a call with the officials. In this case, during the second quarter Monday night against the Mavericks, Popovich had a point — the referees called the ball out off LaMarcus Aldridge, but it was clearly off Yogi Ferrell.
That was the last straw for a frustrated Popovich, who told the officials to “kiss my a**” and a more direct phrase that ends with “you” and will ensure the fine.
The Spurs went on to win the game 115-108 without their coach.
