We knew this wouldn’t take long. NBA veteran, Jason Terry thinks the head coach of the San Antonio Spurs, Gregg Popovich is behind the air conditioning failure in-game one. In a recent interview, Terry said he wouldn’t put anything past Popovich, when it comes to messing with the visiting team.
He had this to say;
“You know what, Pop [Spurs coach Gregg Popovich] has done that so many times. I don’t know if it’s a conspiracy, but I’m telling you, going into San Antonio is a tough place to play…And I can remember very well one time where it was cold showers, there were about a thousand flies in the locker room. This year, there was a snake in the locker room. So, they’re going to pull out all the stops to get into your head. When you go to San Antonio, expect something like that. And Miami fell victim to it. “
Lets assume for a minute Terry is on to something. Doesn’t he understand, both teams had to play in the same conditions? How did Popovich, know the Heat would crumble and his own players would be able to go on as though nothing was wrong?
Does Popovich make the Spurs practice in hot conditions? Come on Terry, even Popovich couldn’t pull this off, or could he?
