Gregg Popovich Rewrote “My Favorite Things”


Gregg Popovich didn’t get what the big fuss over Carrie Underwood’s performance in The Sound of Music was about. He thought she sounded pretty good. He was inspired, after her performance, to write his own version of “My Favorite Things”. These are those lyrics.


Teardrops from Corey Joseph and drafting potential Scottie Pippens
Bright silver jersey trimming and Timmy’s big mittens
San Antonio sunsets with Marco Bellinelli
These are a few of my favorite things

Nando De Colo and our defense unbamboozled
Assists and rebounds and Speedy Claxton’s poodle
Those days when Captain Jack was on my team
These are a few of my favorite things

Tim Duncan bank shots and Kawhai stealing passes
Tony Parker floaters and buzzer beating baskets
Manu Ginobili slapping bats with wings
These are a few of my favorite things

When Boris bites

Coaching Danny Green

When I’m watching Matt

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don’t feel so bad.
