Watch: Gregg Popovich tries to defend Kobe Bryant at All-Star practice
The joy of the NBA All-Star weekend is seeing all of the league’s biggest names competing on the court at the same time, and fans got just that at the Western Conference All-Star practice on Saturday when two surefire Hall of Famers squared off for a game of one-on-one.
Unfortunately, one of them is an old man, and the other one was Gregg Popovich.
Behold, this is what the man who has molded Kawhi Leonard into an all-world defender looks like when tries to play defense.
It is nice to see Kobe Bryant has still got his killer instincts, using a stiff forearm to keep Pop at bay while taking it to the hoop.
