Spurs coach Gregg Popovich leaves generous tip at Memphis bar

Popovich left his server a $5,000 tip last Friday, the day before the Spurs lost to the Grizzlies in Game 4 of the opening round playoffs.

The Spurs took a disappointing trip to Memphis last week, but that didn't affect Greg Popovich's generosity.

According to a post by an NBA Reddit user, the Spurs coach left his server a $5,000 tip on an $815.73 bill at a Memphis restaurant.

Popovich visited a wine bar called McEwen's last Friday, the day before his team lost to the Grizzlies in Game 4 of the opening round playoff series. While restaurant owner Berte Smith wouldn't verify to the San Antonio Express-News that Popovich had dined at the establishment recently, he did confirm the coach "has been in our restaurant in the past multiple times."

The Spurs lost both road games at Memphis but took a 3-2 series lead over the Grizzlies with a victory in San Antonio on Tuesday.
