A few weeks after completing a Manu Ginobili mural at Rudy's Seafood on South Flores, San Antonio artist Nik Soupè has unveiled an addition to the wall: a tribute to Spurs coach Gregg Popovich.

On Thursday, social media users began sharing photos of the mural, which features a serious-faced Popovich.
The tribute comes just days after the passing of Popovich's wife, Erin, who had been sick for some time, according to other outlets. Also on Thursday, the Spurs released a tribute video to Erin, who was married to Coach Pop for more than 40 years.
