Gregg Popovich was critical of the teams in the NBA that rely on three-pointers.

Here is what he said, per Eddie Sefko, of SportsDay:

“It’s not real basketball. Let’s have a 4-point shot. Or a 5-point shot and make it really fun for the fans. Let’s make it a circus.” When asked if game would be OK without a 3-pt. shot, he said: “What am I? You want me to cure cancer, too?”

The Spurs’ coach has a completely different playing style and his team is well known for its great and quick ball movement, which focuses on the players’ passing ability.
