Audio: ESPN’s Ric Bucher talks about lost interview with Spurs’ Popovich


Aside from being named the 2011-12 NBA Coach of the Year, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich also has a reputation for being blunt, curt and often sarcastic with media.

From him being snippy with reporters who ask him baseless questions to his live TV interviews where he shows the world just how snarky he can be, Popovich usually brings the laughs whenever he is interviewed.

ESPN’s Rich Bucher was recently on XX 1090 am radio with Darren Smith in San Diego and spoke about a lost interview with Pop. In the interview, Bucher spoke about how Pop inserted Boris Diaw into the lineup and Pop responded, “Who cares?” And that led to an interview that was so bad, the interview was shelved.

Take a listen.
