San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is known worldwide for his generally terse and dry answers in interviews. For example:

But following the Spurs’ 106-97 loss in Game 3, Popovich had a little fun at the expense of the Thunder’s injury report. When asked about guard Manu Ginobili’s injury status following the game, Pop made a reference to the initially grim injury report on Thunder forward Serge Ibaka.
