Sadly for head coach, Gregg Popovich, the season has now become a tedious bore due to the constant repetition of Spurs victories.
We get more from Spurs Nation:
For Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, the first 52 games of the season have played like his own personal Groundhog Day.
Every night, he dispatches the same starting lineup, uses mostly the same rotation, calls mostly the same plays, usually watches another Spurs’ victory, then goes home and eats dinner. Ho hum.
“It’s like I don’t have a job anymore,” Popovich said.
Popovich, it seems, has discovered a downside to a 44-8 record.
“It’s boring as hell,” he said.
The upside? Popovich says the Spurs’ apparent shift to autopilot has freed up more time for his real passions.
“Wine and reading,” Popovich said.
Man, I could totally picture Popovich sitting next to a fire with a glass of Merlot reading Johnathan Swift poetry with the Bachelor on.
