Gregg Popovich

Check the USA Team practice and how Gregg Popovich showing them how they can play like the San Antonio Spurs.

Gregg Popovich is the 2nd best coach in NBA History (Phil Jackson is 1st, Red Auerbach is 3rd), and it's always interesting to watch his training and what players can learn under his guidance.

He is also one of 9 coaches in NBA history to have won 1,000 NBA games.

In the last few years, the Spurs were playing beautiful basketball with a superior ball movement and fans recognize that and enjoy watching Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and other Spurs players on the court.

Now he's committed to coaching the San Antonio Spurs and Team USA for at least the next four years.

“I’m extremely humbled and honored to have the opportunity to represent our country as the coach of the USA National Team,” said Popovich, a 1970 graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy. “What the program has accomplished over the last decade under the leadership of Jerry Colangelo and Mike Krzyzewski is truly impressive. I will do my utmost to maintain the high standards of success, class and character established by Jerry, Coach K and the many players who have sacrificed their time on behalf of USA Basketball.”
