[December 01, 2014]  Nov 30 (The Sports Xchange) - San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was reflective after returning from a two-game absence because of an undisclosed minor medical procedure.

Popovich, 65, said he was happy to be back before meeting the host Boston Celtics on Sunday.

"Sure. I don't know what else I would do," he said. "It's winter, you know, plants don't grow. I'm having a fight about books right now because I've decided that, at my age, there's so many things you want to read, that you can't do it. So do you just give up and read nothing, or do you go into high gear and read everything that you can find? I just thought I'd throw that out there."
