Popovich and Duncan milestone update


As reported earlier this month here at Project Spurs, San Antonio Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich and forward Tim Duncan are nearing personal milestones in their NBA careers.

Here is an update.

Popovich is currently third in the all-time list of most coaching wins with one team with 780 victories. In first place is former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan with 1,127 wins and in second place is Boston Celtics’ former coach Red Auerbach who has 795 wins. Popovich needs 16 more wins to move into second place.

Duncan is currently 11th on the all-time NBA career blocked shots list with 2,339 blocks. With 18 more blocks, he will move into the top ten surpassing former NBA player Alonzo Mourning who registered 2,356 blocks.
