Gregg Popovich Gives $5,000 Tip to Memphis Server

There are a lot of people in the sports world who suck at tipping (you know, like LeSean McCoy), but San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich isn’t one of them. A server at McEwens in Memphis discovered that last Friday when Gregg dropped a fat $5,000 tip on a $815.73 dinner.

As you can see below, Gregg didn’t let that Game 3 loss effect his hospitality towards the locals (via Nigsignoodles/Reddit):


Bert Smithe, the owner of the restaurant, told that Gregg has dined at his establishment multiple times but didn’t confirm the tip.

You probably won’t be shocked to learn Pop has done this before:
