I love Popovich, he's my favourite coach of all time and this latest comment got me thinking;

So, is Popovich the most quotable coach of all time? What are some of your favourite quotes from Pop and/or other coaches? Do you prefer coaches who can joke around and speak their mind or do you prefer the kind that say what they're supposed to say?

Mike D'Antoni was pretty good in his heyday.

I loved the one where he was asked going into the fourth quarter when they were down by two what he thought going into the 4th.

He said: "We're down."

He probably is now.. I couldn't say ever simply cause I don't know how some coaches were many years ago. This was always a classic though.

I was but a wee lad in his heyday, but I have heard Frank Layden was a quote machine. But Pop is awesome. One of my favorite things he has ever done is on the stat sheet he put by Robert Horry's name: DNP-Old Age". Lol. Did the same thing to Timmy recently.

Haha that was awesome. Pop has a good sense of humor even if you rarely see him laugh.

Pop has a sarcastic humor. He seems to rub off on his players.

My favorite quote was from Phil Jackson: "We call this a 'Brokeback Mountain' game, because there's so much penetration and kickouts." He got some heat for it and then apologized for it.
