Announced a time close to retirement, Gregg Popovich could still stack up a little on the side of San Antonio. The legendary Spurs coach would have a 3-year contract on the table to stay at Fort Alamo.
For a few seasons, when spring arrives, we have always wondered if we have not witnessed Pop’s last moments on an NBA bench. The 2022-23 financial year is no exception to the rule, especially since the Head Coach is at the end of his contract with the Éperons. So, the end of the adventure? Not according to the latest rumors from the side of the Texas franchise. LJ Ellis from SpursTalk indeed tells us that the front office would like to offer its historic coach a new three-year contract. 14 million dollars a year and the opportunity to terminate the contract at the end of each seasonthese are the main lines of the new lease that the former Team USA coach could sign with his lifelong franchise.
A very flexible contract therefore, which would suit all parties. As he approaches his 75th birthday, the coach could move on as soon as he wishes in order to enjoy the finer things in life. On the other side, the Spurs ensure a firm and pedagogical grip to accompany the youngsters present and the one who arrives, a certain Victor Wembanyama. Wemby, precisely, will surely see a good eye in the presence of such a coach. Five titles, the most wins in history, the one that accompanied the French GOAT of the orange ball, Tony Parker. It’s not all-risk insurance, but it’s already a hell of a security.
Here we were more in the factual and the pragmatic, let’s move on to romanticism. Among the very best coaches in history, MR Gregg Popovich couldn’t afford to leave the stage after leading that sad Spurs team. The one who allowed San Antonio to set the record for consecutive Playoff appearances (22) could not go away leaving his team in last place in the West. So, what better idea than to hand over by launching the career of the person who will revive the franchise?
We should therefore have a little spare from Pop, while he can continue to feed his counter of victories in the Great League. All with Wemby headlining the future project.
