It’s weird to picture the San Antonio Spurs sideline with anyone other than Gregg Popovich patrolling it. While he has trained more than one capable replacement (Popovich’s NBA coaching tree is in full bloom around the league), it still would just feel odd. Since the Spurs won a fifth NBA championship in 2014, (Spurs GM R.C.) Buford has had to be prepared for the possibility of Popovich, 69, coaching a final season and moving onto NBA retirement.
