From the archives:Did you know? Pop closing in on coaching record!
Originally posted September 11, 2017
With training camp less than a week away, here's a little reminder to help Spurs fans get excited for the upcoming season: Greg Popovich is on pace to move into fifth on the all time coaching list!
Pop is only five wins behind Phil Jackson (smiles) and 25 wins behind George Karl, making fifth on the list a virtual lock.
If the Spurs exceed expectations this season, which would be deserving of another COY award given the ever increasing level of talent in the Western Conference, Pop could also catch Pat Riley (who has 60 more wins) and move into fourth all time on the list.
With Pop not looking to retire anytime soon, Don Nelson's record of 1,335 wins may very well be within reach before all is said and done!
