San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich didn’t last long in a loss Wednesday night to the Denver Nuggets.

The NBA legend was tossed 63 seconds into the losing effort after getting into it with the officials. It’s not very clear what made Popovich so angry, but the announcers did allude to the fact he probably didn’t feel like he was getting his point across to the ref.

Watch the quick ejection below.

This comes only days after the five-time champion was tossed after melting down against the Kings. Again, Popovich is on a roll the past few days.

For a coach that is known for being extremely level-headed, getting tossed twice in a matter of days isn’t an ideal look.

I have no idea what has gotten into him, but I’m not exactly against this version of Pop. It’s a lot of fun to know he could get thrown out at any moment.

That’s the kind of content that we live for. We’ll have to see if he manages to stick around for longer than a minute when the Spurs play again!
