This graphic via Reddit shows how to trace the professional lineage of Spurs coach Gregg Popovich's coaching tree all the way back to the inventor of basketball, Dr. James Naismith. It shows you how direct the descendency is. Just five branches to Popovich. From Naismith to "Phog" Allen to Dean Smith to Larry Brown to Popovich, and there you are. (CBS Sports)
