Gregg Popovich: A Short Story

There once was a Student, Teacher, Chef , Principal, and five more students. They were all in Bush Middle School, but they were going to the Great Alamo the most famous place in all of Texas. The Student was on the Bus that was taking them to the Alamo, but of course all Sixth graders get bored extremely easily. “I’m bored can we do something fun,” Said Student one. “Well we can tell some stories on our way to the Great Alamo,” the teacher responded. “In fact I have a great story that I can tell to everyone that is on the bus,” the teacher added. “Okay, I hope it is good,” the Principal said cheerfully.

There once was a group of three powerful, strong, and honest men who played an amazing game called basketball. The leader of the group’s name was Tim Duncan and his two sidekicks were named Tony Parker and Manu Ginoble. The are now known as the big three. They battled many easy battles like the Pistons and the Cavaliers. But one year a mean bad guys came, and with him was his awful two sidekicks. The Leader of the bad guys name is Lebron James, and his two sidekicks are Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The year was 2013, and the guys group was named the Miami Heat and the good guys are named the San Antonio Spurs.

The Heat came and stool a ring because of Ray Allen’s lucky three point shot. “How did we let them do this to us? We are the best team in the world,” Team Duncan said in surprise. “We just need to work harder,” Manu Ginobili said. Suddenly the wise, powerful, smart, and old Gregg Popovich came into the room with a big plan to come back and beat the evil Miami Heat. “Our whole team is filled with veterans, so we need more young talent,” Gregg Popovich explained, “that is why I brought the young amazing Kawhi Leonard to bring us a new part of our team,” Gregg Popovich said with excitement. Hi my name is Kawhi Leonard I played with your team last season you just didn’t pay any attention to me because yall are all old,” Kawhi Leonard said. “Okay you guys come to practice tomorrow at 5:30am sharp. ”

Gregg Popovich explained. “Wait did you just 5:30 am, or am I just hearing things? ” Tony Parker said in awe. “Guys Gregg Popovich is smart, so let’s all do it,” Tim Duncan said. “Okay, but if I’m grumpy it is not my fault,” Manu Ginobili complained. “I am going guys just call me if you need anything from me,” Gregg Popovich added. Bye coach,” they all respond. Puff the door closed and chaos broke out. “That early in the morning I would have to wake up at 3:30 to get dressed, eat breakfast, and go on a run,” Tony Parker complained. “I only in my twenties. I can’t wake up at 4:00 in the morning! ” Kawhi Leonard Complained. “Everybody just chill! We need to do this to get to the Finals next postseason.

We need to show that we are better than Lebron,” Tim Duncan said like a true leader. “We don’t even know if Heat will make it to the Finals next year,” Manu Ginobili added with sass in his voice. Come on of course they will the Eastern Conference is weaker than ever before,” Tim Duncan said seriously, “okay lets all go back home and get some rest before the practice tomorrow. ” They all went home and got sleep and are at the practice right now. “Okay guys I am glad all of you could make it here today, Popovich said thankfully, “Lets start with a easy dribbling after we work on dribbling we have to work on our three point shots.

Any Questions? ” “Why is nobody else here besides me, Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili? ” Kawhi questioned. Well you guys need the most work because yall need to learn how to play like the newer kids. You guys have been in the league for a while and you need to know how to keep up with the rookies,” Popovich explained, “okay are y’all to dribble because we need to get the ball handling inside of our brain. Tim here you try to spider. ” “Okay I’ll give it a shot. Wait no! The ball slipped. ” “Have you seen that new kid Stephen Curry he can dribble like a beast.

How will defend that? You need to learn how to dribble like that first so you can think what he is thinking. ” “Okay I understand what you mean,” Ginobili responded. Lets try to do this every time we practice, so we can get better ball handling. Know time for shooting threes,” Popovich said with laughter in his voice. “We all know how to shoot, why do we have to learn how to shoot now? ” Tony Parker asked. “Same purpose as ball handling, you need to learn how to play like the rookies, so now you can defend the rookie bette. And know you can use your rookie defense the older players such as Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and Ray Allen, so they don’t how to block that defense, and you can you use these moves on offense to get more points on the board.

You know have a win win,” Popovich said as if he was master Yoda. “Okay guys we will kow do this every day for the rest of the summer and preseason, regular season, and postseason. ” Many months have past many practices and the are now in the Playoffs The Spurs beat the Dallas Mavericks in seven games. Then Go on to beat the Portland Trail Blazers in five games. They finally reach the Eastern Conference Finals to beat a tough Oklahoma City Thunder in just six games. Okay we have finally reached the Finals we need to show the Heat that we have a few tricks up our sleeves. ”

Popovich said Then boom in a blink of an eye the Spurs won in only six games. With the work of some knew plays they can pull off a win against a super team “That is the story of the San Antonio Spurs and how practice can make perfect,” the teacher finally said. “Dang that was a good story can you share another one? ” the student questioned. “Well we are at the Alamo, so now you will here the story of Davy Crockett. ” the teacher responded.
