Gregg Popovich Makes Huge Decision On His Future

It's amazing what getting a generational player in the Draft can do to make a man young again. 74-year-old Gregg Popovich —the winningest NBA coach of all-time – has decided he wants to be around for a while to help guide Victor Wembanyama into the future. The legendary coach has signed a new five-year contract extension with the San Antonio Spurs.

Popovich’s new five-year deal is worth more than $80 million. It was only last month that Monty Williams signed the richest coaching contract in NBA history, a six-year, $78.5 million deal with Detroit. Pop's deal tops that, and resets the coaching market. 

Popovich has led the Spurs to five NBA championships, and now will have presided over three No. 1 overall picks, Wemby plus David Robinson and Tim Duncan. 

Even LeBron James had a congratulatory message for the ageless one:

The Spurs have missed the playoffs four straight seasons, and there were rumblings that Popvich might retire this summer. But then the team won the Draft Lottery, and the rights to add the 7'5" phenom Wembanyama, and Pop decided to opt for the fountain of youth.
