Pop: I can see myself coaching for a while

Former San Antonio Spurs play-by-play announcer, Greg Papa, sat down with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich prior to the Warriors game to interview him for Chronicle Live on Comcast Sports Net.

Papa and Popovich talked about the current Spurs record, his time coaching in Golden State, his relationship with Tim Duncan and how long he plans on coaching.

“He was a great follower when David was here and it turned him into a great leader,” Popovich said of Duncan. “It’s pretty hard to not follow his lead.”

Popovich also said he plans to continue coaching although he says he does not plan to coach as long as Don Nelson and Larry Brown, who he coached under in Golden State and in San Antonio.

“I still love it and I can see myself coaching for a while.”
