Gregg Popovich jokes about potentially leaving the San Antonio Spurs


The San Antonio Spurs have finished their season after a loss in game 7 against the Denver Nuggets. Once again they made it to the playoffs despite losing Kawhi Leonard last summer in a trade for DeMar DeRozan. At the age of 70, Gregg Popovich is by far the longest tenured coach in the NBA, and there was even some concern whether he would retire after this season.

In an interview with reporters today, Gregg Popovich was asked if he is revisiting his contract and in his own manner, Popovich replied sarcastically. He said there are three teams that he is choosing from and San Antonio Spurs are one of them.

"I never talked about my contract after all these years and I never had an agent and never talked about the contract. I also don't talk about free agency, trades or anything. My contract is basically my business but I will break the rule this time. I am currently in negotiations I could easily end up with Portofino Flyers, Positano Pirates and San Antonio Spurs."

Popovich did stress out an important message that he wants all the team members back next year because he believes they are building a culture with this team.

We'll spend the summer figuring out what we'll do but it's not going to be a whole lot different. People will execute better and it's about building a culture and building on top of what we did this year. It's not about reinventing the wheel.
