San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is not afraid to earn a technical here and there. 

He’s also not afraid to get ejected, as this sideline video of Popovich getting thrown out of a recent game against the Timberwolves shows. The referee doesn’t toss Popovich as much as he obliges him. When Popovich tells the ref to blow his whistle (albeit more colorfully than that), the official doesn’t really have a choice.

This is why the man is a five-time champion.
