first_imgAllen Kee / ESPN Images(CLEVELAND) — Two power houses collide on Saturday when the Cleveland Cavaliers host the San Antonio Spurs. Cavaliers’ star LeBron James had high praise for Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich when asked about him leading up to the game, calling him the greatest coach of all time.“A guy to be able to do what he’s done in an era of basketball where it’s changed so much and he’s been able to have a growth mindset and be able to change with the game,” James said. “He’s just continued to build around [Tim Duncan] and Manu [Ginobili] and Tony [Parker] and bring pieces in – in and out throughout his whole tenure.”James is also impressed with Popovich’s adaptability. “We went from a league where it was inside out, where every time you came down it was throw it to the big, and then it goes to every time down pick-and-roll, and then it goes to every time down shoot a 3, he said. “Pop has been able to adjust every single time and still, for some odd reason, keep those guys under the radar. I don’t understand it.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Relatedlast_img
