Instagram user “mkelite” has given the phrase “Put me in, coach!” a whole new meaning.
The NBA 2K15 wizard added San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to the Chicago Bulls to face off against the NBA’s finest. Don’t let Pop’s gray hair and receding hairline fool you, though; he’s got the vertical of Wilt Chamberlain on a jet pack. His well-oiled knee joints propel him to the rim for a monstrous dunk, leaving poor LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in his dust.
Look closely and you’ll notice current Timberwolves and former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau hustling out there beside Pop. Move over Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, there’s a new all-time legendary dynamic duo on the Bulls. Their coach-to-player trajectories seem to be the exact opposites of most players-turned-coaches’, but the transition appears to be working out well for them.
Imagine this: Pop + Thibs + D-Wade = playoff-bound Bulls. No questions asked.
