Gregg Popovich gets ejected after trying to fight the ref

It takes some getting used to, seeing the San Antonio Spurs like this. From 1998 until 2020, the Spurs made the playoffs every season. Even more impressive, the Spurs won 50 games every season from 2000 until 2017. In 1999, the Spurs won their first championship. The following seasons, the Spurs would win an additional four titles. That era saw teams led by Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Kawhi Leonard.

With Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs had a successor to the Tim Duncan era. In 2017, Kawhi Leonard had an MVP-caliber season. Leonard led the Spurs to 61 wins and they dominated through the playoffs. That year, Kawhi Leonard had the Spurs up big against the Golden State Warriors. However, Zaza Pachulia took Kawhi Leonard out of the series, and the Spurs were never the same. This opened the door to Leonard leaving the Spurs, forcing them into a rebuild.

Since 2018, the Spurs have struggled, but Gregg Popovich became the winningest coach in NBA history, this month. This season has seen the Spurs struggle for the first time since the 1997 season, when injuries depleted their roster. Last night, the Spurs hosted the New Orleans Pelicans, and things got tense during the game. Gregg Popovich believed one of his guys was fouled, but it wasn’t called. Popovich got angry and began shouting at the ref, with his staff having to hold him back, which led to his ejection.
