Video: ESPN’s Bob Ryan praises Popovich


The San Antonio Spurs have an 18-game winning streak, are undefeated in the 2012 NBA playoffs, won a remarkable 50 games in a truncated season, are in the Western Conference Finals, and the franchise is looking at winning title number five.

And all this has been accomplished under the guidance of Gregg Popovich.

For years, Pop has always had his team ready to make a run at a title and play at their peak. Yet, coaches like Phil Jackson, or Doc Rivers are more celebrated.

ESPN’s Bob Ryan felt it was time to give credit where credit is due.

Check out Ryan as he showers Pop with the praise he deserves.
