Sometimes, after a team wins a big game, the players will give their head coach a Gatorade bath. However, players on the San Antonio Spurs should think twice before drenching Gregg Popovich with Gatorade.
After the Spurs got whooped in Game 1 of their playoff matchup with the Golden State Warriors, Popovich wasn’t too pleased with the Gatorade bottle he found at his press conference.
Gregg Popovich in Gregg Popovich form even before postgame press conference began in Oakland. Not a fan of Gatorade apparently. 😂 pic.twitter.com/DVkHRLSULS— 95.7 The Game (@957thegame) April 14, 2018
For Popovich’s sake, it’s a good thing he mentioned that his antics regarding Gatorade were just a joke. After all, the NBA does have a major partnership with Gatorade. As many basketball fans know, the NBA’s minor league is called the Gatorade League (G-League).
Popovich’s mood would sink from there, and this is how the press conference concluded…

If the Spurs lose Game 2 tonight, the reporters at Popovich’s postgame press conference better watch out.
