Jim Boylen on his conversations with Pop: "We've talked a lot about family, and we've talked a lot about leadership; just what the NBA is. Obviously, he's got great experience. He was in a situation 20 something years ago where he took over a team. So we talked last night, and we've talked a couple times. He chewed me out for my voicemail being full. So I've got to take that from him. He's just a great mentor. You know what he is? For me now, he's a friend, too. When you work for him, he's your boss, and he's your leader. Now, he's a friend and a guy I can talk to."
