Seasoned television veterans struggle to get San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to open up during interviews.

Popovich normally sticks to fewer than 20 words, and has even gotten off with just two.

So it is all the more impressive that in his first sideline interview with the stoic Spurs coach, Jalen Rose not only managed to get a good answer out of Popovich, he also drew a laugh from him.

When the former NBA star-turned-ESPN broadcaster asked about Popovich's pupil, Avery Johnson, having his No. 6 retired in San Antonio, Popovich couldn't help but smile.

Bill Simmons just about sums it up with his reaction. What Rose accomplished was nothing short of stunning.
