Following the San Antonio Spurs’ win over the Oklahoma City Thunder (114-106), Gregg Popovich spoke about Chris Paul and how rare players like him are.

There are not many veterans like Chris Paul, who are excited to mentor young players, according to Gregg Popovich. That makes him a ‘special dude’:

“It’s less common than one would think. There aren’t one or two of those on every NBA team. Some NBA teams don’t have any. So, he’s a special dude.”
