Spurs head coach, Gregg Popovich, made one waiters year! Aside from being a great coach, he is also a great tipper. The team was in Memphis for a playoff game and he stopped at a restaurant to grab a bite. His bill was $800. He was clearly happy over that win because he left a $5000 tip! Why couldn't get him at 1 of my tables when I was a server. Sigh! The restaurant owner; however, wouldn't confirm the amount of the tip...only that he was indeed at the restaurant.
The receipt is dated April 21st, which is when the Spurs were in Memphis for NBA playoff games. The Spurs lead the Grizzlies 3-2 in the playoffs. Game 6 is this Thursday night in Memphis.
