Popovich Nets 1,000th Win With Spurs
Who’d have imagined this in 1997? San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich notched 1,000 wins last night as his Spurs rallied to defeat the Indiana Pacers 95-93. He’s the ninth coach ever with so many wins, the third fastest to get there, and only the second to do it with the same team. Amazingly, “Pop” has more wins than five NBA franchises. Not bad for a former GM who fired his predecessor, named himself coach and ended his first season with 47 losses.
