Coach Pop Ejected for Second Time This Month, Yelled "Kiss My A—"


Tony Parker may have been back on the court for the first time this season after seven months of rehab from his devastating injury in the Western Conference semifinals, but that didn't give Gregg Popovich any reason to not get fired up per usual.

Coach Pop was ejected from Monday evening's game against the Dallas Mavericks, making it his second ejection so far this season. We can't say we're surprised.

This time, Coach Pop just made it to the second quarter before having to be escorted off the court. His frustration came after officials didn't make an out of bounds call on Dallas. Popovich's outburst earned him two quick technical fouls, forcing him to watch the rest of the game from the locker room.

A video posted to Twitter by Bleacher Report shows that Coach Pop yelled "kiss my ***" to a referee.

Thankfully, the Spurs were still able to come through a win against the team's I-35 rival, finishing the game 115-108.
