VIDEO: Gregg Popovich Hates It When He Wins Coach Of The Year

As is custom, the NBA presented San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich with his NBA Coach of the Year Award trophy during the San Antonio Spurs' blowout win over the Utah Jazz in Game 2 of their 2012 NBA playoffs first-round series. Normally, this is a time for the award-winner to be happy, thank his players and/or fans, throw in some self-deprecating humor and rile the crowd up.

These kinds of things don't appear to be Popovich's cup of tea. Even with star Tim Duncan and former star David Robinson up there with him, Popovich looked like he was about to get a root canal.


Don't ever change, Pop.
