    Don’t play with my emotions. Pop has the cache to reign in Harden and westi. If anyone can get these two to get it together it is POP and will turn Hardens arsenal of post moves and mid range game into reality

    He will expand the offense into a way more variety filled piece of art.

    I mean, if he was ever truly set on leaving San Antonio, and would want to come here, then Tilman should definitely pay him whatever he wants and bring him in.

    didn’t read the article tho because Idk what sportskeeda is

    Its probably nothing more than one journalist's thoughts, but where there is an opening, and there is a coach available, who knows? He hasn't said no to the idea as far as I know.

    Popovich to the Spurs franchise every year post Duncan as the rumors mount that he will go coach somewhere else or retire.

    warning language.

    Doesn’t Pop run the whole franchise? Morey dose what for his guaranteed contract, if true?

    Please, please, PLEASE stop putting "Rumor" in the title for articles that are just some guy saying we "could" or "should" do something.

    This idiot (the writer) says that "NBA trade rumors have linked Gregg Popovich to the vacant head coach position at the Houston Rockets," then offers no proof of this at all. Not a single reference to a rumor, especially nothing from a connected source.

    I figure it is based on as much as the Harden don't want JVG or Practice with his teammates stuff

    Might likely be fake news, but you take Pop in a hot second if he's available.

    It is time to retire and only coach Team US one last time or 2 times.

    The closest we can come to Pop is Becky Hammon. I’m all for it.
