Gregg Popovich, Not a Fan of Twitter
During the tenured coach's pregame session with the media, he was made aware of this tweet from Nash. And in classic Popovich style, he sarcastically answered the question, but not before making his feelings about Twitter crystal clear.
"Does Steve tweet? I've lost all respect," Popovich joked. "Steve Nash should not be a tweeter. He's a competitor, not a tweeter."
As for Nash's assertion that the coach's time in the military helped him become a basketball mastermind, Popovich wholeheartedly agreed.
"He's absolutely correct," Popovich deadpanned. "I spent all my military time in Russian basketball courts in different cities collecting as many out of bounds plays as I possibly could. And now, I've had a chance to employ them."
Popovich then continued his anti-Twitter remarks, effectively saying that in his eyes, loose lips sink ships.
"If you're a tweeter, you talk too much. You want to keep things closer to the vest, so you can't tweet."
When it was pointed out that the Spurs have some tweeters in their locker room, Popovich's response was pretty much what you'd expect.
"I know," Popovich said. "I hate 'em all."
