Gregg Popovich mailbag: It's pretty freaking awesome

Literally one of my favorite reads in awhile. Popovich covered a wide-range of topics including how he tried to listen to Stephen Jackson's rap once, his musical taste and why he can't finish Ulysses because he's not man enough.

Tim Duncan is not only not known just as Tim, he is not even known as Duncan. In fact, he is always called "Tim Duncan," to make sure we remember who he is. Tim Duncan just doesn't get it. He is happy playing down there in San Antonio. He never tries to get his coach fired. He even likes his coach, Gregg Popovich, who everybody just calls "Pop." Pop doesn't get it either. He's been quietly coaching the Spurs since 1996, and even though he is coach of the year again, he doesn't think he is either a genius or a guru. Tim Duncan has himself been hiding in San Antonio since 1997, after he graduated from college with honors. He is so weird he never gets in the columns.

CBS: Pop wins Coach of the Year

It'll be just Popovich's second Coach of the Year award, which reads as an outright crime considering his consistency and excellence with a roster that under most coaches would perform only to mediocrity. Tim Duncan's prime passed nearly five years ago, and yet this year marks the second time in two seasons the Spurs have held the best record in the tough Western Conference.

...as if he gives a crap. Congrats to Pop, though - he's been doing a great job this season, even by his standards. Spoelstra won the award in the East.
