The wife and friends of Gregg Popovich reported being uneasy Sunday morning to see the usually grumpy Spurs coach in good spirits.
The morning after his team’s flawless, 32-point obliteration of the Thunder, the curmudgeonly Popovich unnerved everyone who saw him by making pleasant conversation without grumbling under his breath about rebounds, better ball movement, or needing more pace.
“Good morning,” Popovich reportedly said, without grimacing distractedly at problems bouncing around his brain. “Something smells good.”
Meanwhile, Thunder personnel said they were bewildered to find the normally carefree and vivacious Steven Adams spending Sunday morning quietly sitting by himself, frowning.
