Because there's an unwritten rule that the local beat reporters must ask the head coach about all trade rumors, even though the coach has far more important things to worry about, some local Spurs reporter asked Popovich about the rumor. Popovich's response?
"What the heck is Yahoo!?" Popovich said. "Is it one of those computer things? Is that like Twittering?â†µ
