San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was reportedly feeling generous while his team was in Memphis, Tennessee, for Games 3 and 4 of their first-round playoff series against the Grizzlies. The owner of the restaurant confirmed that Popovich has been to McEwen's multiple times.

According to Kelsey Bradhsaw of San Antonio Express News, a Reddit user posted a photo of a bill signed by Popovich at a restaurant called McEwen's in Memphis.

According to the report, the handwriting on the receipt matches Popovich's.

The image in that tweet is a cropped version of an imagine originally posted to Reddit, where it appears the original poster has taken the image down because it contained credit card information.

The IOC has now caught 111 athletes through retesting from the 2008 and 2012 Games. Britain's Kelly Sotherton is set to be upgraded to her third Olympic bronze medal.

Gregg Popovich is a better tipper than he is a basketball coach-and that's saying something.

San Antonio have a chance to finish the series with a win in Game 6 on Friday AEDT in Memphis.

"We don't discuss anything that goes on when VIPs are in the building", Smithe said.

Both publications reported that Popovich has been rumored to have left a hefty tip before.
