Pop is a damn good coach who has been able to treat every player with the same type of respect.
He's get onto Tim Duncan as much as he does Fabrico Oberto or Beno. Pop also has innovated his offense more than his early days.
pop has never played without a HOF center arguably the most valuable single player u can possibly have. infact he had two at one point. I'm just saying that the spurs success while admirable is due mostly to their talent than their coach and while its nice that pop is a good person and is winning with it it doesn't mean that he's as good as they say.
like I said, he teaches good fundamental basketball but is overall relatively uninnovative. when he has the talent he can probably beat u, and of course he's a nice person
