Gregg Popovich is the best coach in basketball. He routinely summons brilliance from his players, stays two miles ahead of the curve and, most importantly, understands that there’s more to life than the NBA.

Popovich is cerebral, intelligent and selfless, a fantastic communicator (though several in the media would disagree) who knows that team trumps talent every day of the week. 

This wonderful quote shows just how insightful he really is:

For the first time in a few seasons, the Spurs have a bunch of new faces in training camp. Several of them will assume massive roles on the team this season. And while this may be the most talented and skilled group Pop has ever had, he knows they’ll stumble without trust serving as an impenetrable safety net.
