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.

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:
