Gregg Popovich is known to be a great basketball coach, but he may be an even better tipper. A post on Reddit Tuesday shows the San Antonio Spurs head coach left a $5,000 tip on an $800 dinner bill at a Memphis restaurant. The owner of McEwen's wouldn't confirm the tip, but did tell the San Antonio Express-News that Popovich had been at the restaurant multiple times in the past.
The receipt is dated April 21st, which is when the Spurs were in Memphis for NBA playoff games. The Spurs lead the Grizzlies 3-2 in the playoffs. Game 6 is this Thursday night in Memphis.
