A native of Indiana, a product of the United States Air Force Academy, and a firm believer in the old-school, straight-forward, no-nonsense way of life, Gregg Popovich has quietly turned the San Antonio Spurs into one of the NBA’s most storied franchises. Armed with lineups that included David Robinson and Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, and Kawhi Leonard, and blessed with role players like Bruce Bowen, Sean Elliot, Robert Horry, and Avery Johnson, Pop blended his rosters of diverse personalities into cohesive units. The three-time NBA Coach of the Year has led the Spurs to five NBA championships and collected more wins than any other coach in league history. Along the way, the stoic and steadfast pilot managed to win a gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a considerable honor for a former Air Force cadet. A natural leader, and a developer of leaders, Popovich’s coaching tree includes the likes of Steve Kerr, Mike Budenholzer, Monty Williams, Mike Brown, and trailblazer Becky Hammon.
