Gregg Popovich Ejected 1 Minute Into Game: San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was ejected 63 seconds into Wednesday's game against the Denver Nuggets. This may be an all-time record for a coach, beating a Don Nelson ejection after 93 seconds leading the Dallas Mavericks in 2004. Pop missed a game in which the Spurs never led and scored a season-low 85 points. After the game, Popovich crashed Denver coach Michael Malone's presser.

I suppose that if you're going to do something do it right and with class. Malone was right, Popovich is truly one of a kind. I don't think any coach will ever beat Red Auerbach's record of getting 2 technicals and being ejected from an All Star Game. (January 1967 in San Francisco) Auerbach had retired from coaching after the previous season.
