Gregg Popovich’s Office Decor is a Picture of John Havlicek

There wasn’t much drama to maintain our interest in San Antonio’s 104-82 win over the Portland Trail Blazers Wednesday night, but a nugget from TNT broadcaster Kevin Harlan caught my attention.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has a picture of former Celtics great John Havlicek on his wall and nothing else, according to Harlan. And here I figured Pop to be a dogs-playing-poker kind of guy.

Popovich reached his 9th Conference Finals with the win. Only Red Auerbach, Pat Riley, and Phil Jackson have been to more.
