Watch Gregg Popovich make an interview with TNT’s David Aldridge incredibly awkward

(Eric Gay/AP)

For anyone who may have missed the delightful awkwardness that ensued when TNT’s David Aldridge tried to interview San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich during Tuesday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, watch this now.

It’s fabulous, isn’t it? Everything from the deliberate turn of the head, the unblinking stare, the look of concern, Aldridge’s giggling, the reminder that they were on TV… Yes, this interview has nearly everything. And if you watched long enough Tuesday night, Popovich even has an answer for the question. (In short, the Spurs started off okay, but then went downhill.)

Really, the only thing that could make that interview better was if somehow Chris Bosh showed up. One can dream…
