Pop and his wife got married four decades ago and have two children and two grandchildren. Popovich did not coach the game.

In addition to his regular season debut, Messina assumed the role of head coach of the World Team in the 2016 NBA Rising Stars Challenge.

Trending today on the KRON4 Morning Buzz, Gregg Popovich loses his wife and babies now allowed on the Senate floor.

Parker broke in to the National Basketball Association when he was 19.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant learned of Erin Popovich's death shortly after the Spurs released their statement. He spent time with the family on Wednesday night.

Hampered by a right toe contusion, Portland starting small forward Evan Turner was ruled out for Game 3 almost two hours before tipoff.

She would, he said, tell him to be more mature during his famously cantankerous exchanges with reporters-advice that, in recent years, he seems to have taken.

Some defended TNT and LaForce, pointing out that if she didn't ask James about Erin Popovich's death, someone else in the media surely would have soon after, in the postgame news conference.

Ginobili walked away from reporters, fighting back tears.

Those words came from LeBron James on his drive home to quell the social-media uproar over the TNT sideline reporter asking James on live TV, moments after the Cavaliers' Game 2 victory over IN, about the death of Gregg Popovich's wife, Erin. The Warriors lead the series 2-0.

"Margot and Erin were close and stayed in touch over the years".

Ettore Messina, a Spurs assistant since 2014, will coach the team.

Game 4 of the series will be Sunday at 12:30 p.m.in San Antonio.

The news of the death of Erin Popovich, at age 67, broke while the Cavs-Pacers game was being played.

Popovich has spent his life dedicated to building a culture of mindfulness in San Antonio. The team didn't provide further details.

"It's saddening news. It caught all of us by surprise and all you can do is send all your thoughts and prayers to the Popovich family", said Spoelstra, who is second in coaching tenure with the same team to Popovich said. "She was a strong, wonderful, kind, intelligent woman who provided love, support and humour to all of us". The adult male stealing the first two pucks from her and giving them to those boys?

Popovich met his wife at the Air Force Academy in the 1970s when he was an assistant coach for the Falcons. The Spurs frontcourt start scored 34 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to keep San Antonio in Game 2 until late.
