As NBA fans know, this isn’t Pop’s first run-in with TNT this season, as poor David Aldridge had to endure one of his famous between-quarter interviews during the first week of the season. Ultimately, I wouldn’t put it past Pop to actually play his stars, but if he does, then who is the joke really on?
