Jeff Van Gundy nervously interviews Gregg Popovich

The hug that saved the basketball world.

My professors all through journalism school taught me to never start a story with a quote. So, indirectly, I guess I did. But still, let's begin with Jeff Van Gundy beginning his third-quarter interview with Gregg Popovich with this:

"I've never been so nervous in my life. So I asked all the sideline reporters what to do, how to approach you. They said, 'Explore your feelings.'"

And then Gregg Popovich hugged Jeff Van Gundy. And all the world stopped all its wars. And no human ever again held any grudges or hatred. The universe was at peace.
