Jalen Rose gets Spurs coach Gregg Popavich to crack a smile [video]


Spurs head coach Gregg Popavich is a notoriously difficult sideline interview. NBA analyst Jalen Rose accomplished a huge feat Wednesday night in his first stint as a sideline reporter by getting Pop to laugh and make a joke.

Current NBA analyst Avery Johnson is apart of the ESPN broadcast team and a former player of Coach Popavich’s. Jalen wanted to know how Johnson’s jersey was retired with such average numbers as a member of the Spurs.


Bill Simmons and Mike Trico were super proud of Jalen.


Spurs beat the Laker no names.
