Cory Joseph does his best Popovich impression after repeated question
Let this be a lesson to reporters covering the Toronto Raptors: new point guard Cory Joseph learned from the best. And if you bring weak questions, Joseph will (jokingly) shut you down, Pop-style.
Joseph, of course, is a former member of the San Antonio Spurs, which means he had plenty of opportunity to watch Gregg Popovich in action. So when a reporter asked a question on Tuesday that Joseph had already answered Monday night, he gave a Pop impression a shot:
The question was about Joseph's debut as a Raptor, which came in Monday's preseason game against the Timberwolves. He finished with 14 points and four assists in 21 minutes off the bench.
Asked to revisit what he felt, a familiar, if not grumpy face popped into his head.
“I mentioned it (Monday) night. You can’t ask me again,” he said, his demeanour giving way to laughter. “That’s my Pop impersonation.”
