Either Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is making a bold political statement, or he just has a soft spot for cheesy movies. 

The U.S. Olympic swimming team was in San Antonio on Friday and got to speak with Pop and Tony Parker. Popovich decided this would be a good time to wear his shirt from one of 2004’s five funniest films.

For all we know, Pedro could be the name of some unknown player in Europe that Pop is hoping to turn into the next Manu Ginobili.

But is this seriously what he dresses like when he’s not on the court?
