Gregg Popovich Reaches his 1000th Career Wins.

Posted by

Gregg Popovich became the ninth NBA coach to reach the one thousand win plateau. He joined the likes of Phil Jackson, who achieved it with two teams and Pat Riley who achieved the feat with three teams. Popovich is the only member of this group who has been associated with one team in his head coaching career. Nineteen years he has been at the helm of the San Antonio Spurs. His team has been called “Old” for the last few years but it has not stopped them from winning. Popovich has won the Western Conference six times. The NBA Championship five times. Popovich has been NBA Coach of the year three times. Popovich has been the All-Star team coach three times. Sure Tim Duncan has been a large part of his success but his time at the helm of the San Antonio Spurs has been well spent. Long an advocate for no Television coaching interviews during the half time break it is a comedy routine watching some poor reporter chasing him down only to get the weather forecast or some inane comment. He obviously saves his “pearls of wisdom” for the San Antonio Spurs, and his pearls of wisdom have worked wonders for over nineteen years.
