Gregg Popovich Get a Little Physical with Kawhi Leonard During Game Three? [GIF]

If this was a college game it would be the kind of thing that would get the morality police on social media in to a frenzy. Instead what we have here is a 65-year old man going all getting in the face of his future star. Is it just me or does it look like there might be a little something behind those punches?

If so--good for you coach. He needed it.


I have no idea when this was taken, but it is probably safe to guess it was anytime during the second or third period. After getting out to an incredibly hot start with 16 points in the first he scored just four over the next two.

That might explain why Leonard woke up and scored nine in the final period to help San Antonio win one in Miami, 111-92.

  1. You've got it totally wrong; this was at the end of the game, and Pop was showing approval for Leonard's excellent play.

    1. I said I didn't know when it was from and just made a guess/assumption because he disappeared for two periods.

    2. Thanks for clarifying where it is from though.
