Gregg Popovich Masterfully Trolls Media When Asked About Nikola Jokic “Revolutionizing” NBA

Pop’s back n form.

Gregg Popovich has been coaching in the NBA for quite some time, which makes him the troll master when interacting with members of the media.

Ahead of the matchup between the Spurs and Nuggets on Wednesday night, ​Popovich was asked about how Nikola Jokic is “revolutionizing” big men in the NBA. And he had the best response possible.

 


“When I think of revolution, I think of people like Che Guevara, Ivan Illich, Lenin… I don’t really think of Jokic as quite a revolutionary. So I think you’re a bit hyperbolic there.”

As usual, the man can’t help but poke fun at the word choice used by reporters when asking him questions, and this time, a little history lesson was involved.

 


Now, we can’t wait to hear Jokic’s response in the postgame.
