You can always count on San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to say something entertaining.

Everything is going right for the team with the NBA's best record right now, and it's not just because of the effort from Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker.
Popovich is pleased with the progress guard Patty Mills has shown with the Spurs.

But why did it take until his third year with the team to have a breakout season?

"He was a little fat ass. He had too much junk in the trunk," Popovich told the San Antonio Express-News. "His decision-making wasn't great, and he wasn't in great shape."

Mills has played in a career-high 71 games this season, averaging 9.8 points and 1.8 assists per game.
