It was a Tim Duncan created environment that allowed his teammates on the San Antonio Spurs to be the best players they could be. Those are the words of Spurs Head Coach Greg Popovich. Popovich, who often holds short interactions with the media, did not hold back on his appreciation for Duncan.
At the Spurs Training Center Tuesday, Popovich said Duncan was never one to hold a press conference about himself. “So this is the furthest thing from his mind, so I figured better come out here and do this and somehow say goodbye to him which is an impossibility.”
