For only the second time in his career Gregg Popovich won’t be coaching Tim Duncan, and Pop is having a hard time adjusting. 

The Spurs didn’t need Duncan to beat the Warriors on Tuesday night, though, so Popovich was in a joking mood during his his in-game interview with David Aldridge.

When Aldridge asked Popovich how he’s dealing with Duncan’s absence, Pop pretended like Timmy is supposed to be showing up any day now. 

To be fair, Duncan did string Pop along a bit by showing up to practice last month.
