Acting Golden State Warriors head mentor Mike Brown arrived late for Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday night, and about wound up in handcuffs.
Dark colored got under the skin of cops for following the Spurs’ transport excessively nearly, which extraordinarily entertained Gregg Popovich.
Coach Pop on Mike Brown: "If the California Highway patrol tells you to get out of the way, move over. He didn't do that."

The police didn’t care not a little bit for Brown’s reasons.
Per the AP:
“I’m like, ’Warriors acting coach,’” he said, pointing to the logo on his shirt. “He’s like: ‘I don’t care. Hey you, stop!’”
At his final red light before reaching the gates to the stadium parking lots, Brown’s luck ran out.
Once the Spurs got by, Brown’s phone rang with a familiar caller ID — “Gregg Popovich, San Antonio Spurs.”
“So I answer the phone and Pop is dying. He goes, ’Mike, I didn’t know that was you,’” Brown recalled. “He goes: ’I’m sitting here and I see this black Range Rover, I see all these cops surrounding them. I see the car trying to inch forward, I’m like, ‘He’s about to get arrested.’ I said, ‘Pop, this is my own building.’ He goes, ‘I know, when I saw it was you, I died laughing.’”
