Gregg Popovich hugs Jeff Van Gundy during sideline interview (VIDEO)

Jan 8, 2014, 9:53 PM EDT

The highlight of any nationally televised Spurs game for us at home — and the great terror of all sideline reporters — is interviewing Gregg Popovich. You could get terse, cutting one-word answers if your question comes off as banal, or if the Spurs are struggling.

Jeff Van Gundy got the short straw Wednesday and had to do the interview — and he got a hug.

Probably didn’t hurt that the Spurs were up 20 on their way to coasting in to a win over the Mavericks.

    I loved every last bit of that interview. These guys have personalities that we don’t get to see often.

    Pop comes across as an ass until you see him in his charismatic state. Most probably dislike him when he’s coaching but watch these sideline interviews and you can’t help but like the guy.
