Popovich loves LeBron and LeBron loves Popovich

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is always good for a quote about LeBron James, his favorite player in the league. Here's what Pop said about James' ongoing development.

"He's so good already," Popovich said. "We all know what his skills are. He's a great passer, he can rebound, he can defend. But I think, if anything, he is maturing mentally in the sense that he is enjoying playing the game. He doesn't listen to talking heads anymore — or a lot less than when he first came in the league."

And, of course, LeBron returned the kind words after the game.

"I appreciate that," James said, who was followed by ESPN.com as he left the arena to get this quote. "Pop knows what he's talking about. That's why he's one of the best to ever coach this game."
