• Spurs' Popovich wants to continue coaching

    Summary of 37 articles · Updated Jun 18, 2014
    I'd like to continue to coach," Popovich said as the Spurs prepared for Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat, where they hold a 3-1 series lead. "Sure," Popovich said. "I've said many times, a day didn't go by where I didn't think about Game 6," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of the turning point in last year's finals. The Spurs had a 'Big 3' then, the same one that they have now. To start, Phil Jackson gave a nod to Gregg Popovich and the Spurs for rebounding from last year’s Finals loss. Yet, when the Spurs captured their fifth NBA championship against the Miami Heat on Sunday night, it was notable to see Popovich and Duncan displaying a great deal of emotion once the accomplishment was complete. Those stubborn Spurs, despite all their recent let's-wait-and-see proclamations, have been quietly expecting all along for Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Gregg Popovich to stick around next season and return in their current capacities alongside Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs team proved far superior than the lone brilliance of James, defeating the Heat four games to one with Sunday night’s 104-87 victory in Game 5 to claim the NBA Finals that slipped out of their fingers last year.
