Gregg Popovich Can’t Wait for the Season to Start

This should cause the other 29 NBA coaches to lose some sleep: “All along, Popovich wished his offseason were shorter, that it hadn’t begun in April after a first-round playoff loss against Dallas. Now, he’s wishing it were over completely. After the most eventful summer of his San Antonio tenure, Popovich is ready to get back to work. ‘You can only relax so much,’ Popovich said during an informal fat-chewing session with reporters Tuesday at the Spurs’ Northwest-side headquarters. ‘You can only chase players so much. My stomach is starting to churn. I’m getting anxious.’ In a sense, Popovich is like a kid at Christmas brunch. His new toys have been unwrapped. He is eager to start playing with them.”
