A sideline interview with San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich can always be an adventure. So when Jeff Van Gundy was tasked with interviewing Popovich midgame for the first time after the third quarter of Wednesday's game against the Dallas Mavericks, he took a different approach, resulting in perhaps the most unique Popovich interview experience ever.

That interview between Jeff Van Gundy and Pop is the highlight of the NBA season. Nothing is topping it.

I can't even hear JVG and Pop and I'm cracking up. Can't wait to hear what was actually said.
