Maybe Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is to blame for Steve Kerr’s snub of Phil Jackson.

When asked by The Post if Kerr consulted him when Kerr’s choice came down to the Knicks and Warriors, Popovich said, “Friends talk.’’

He wouldn’t go any further; neither would Kerr.

“We talked, but I’m not going to tell you what he said,’’ Kerr said with a chuckle.

Jackson couldn’t have thrilled the folks in San Antonio when he said last month he wouldn’t classify the Spurs as “a dynasty,’’ only “a great force.’’

Kerr, fulfilling his TNT broadcasting duties working the Western Conference finals with Marv Albert, played on two of Popovich’s four title teams.

“He’s quite an intelligent young man,’’ Popovich said of Kerr. “He’s been around. He’s seen a lot. He’s seen enough to know what he wants to do and what he doesn’t want to do. He’s great with interpersonal relationships. He’s a hard worker. He’s obviously a close friend, but I think on a professional level he’ll dive in and do everything he can, beginning with forming a staff and trying to do everything the right way. I’m excited for him.’’
