Mike Brown and the Golden State Warriors will host Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night for Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. But ahead of the game, the two nearly met in Oracle Arena’s parking lot, which got Brown into some trouble with the cops.

Brown was late for his press conference because of what happened. He explained the issue in detailed and hilarious fashion.

That’s certainly not the kind of story you expect to hear coming out of a Western Conference Final.

It’s easy to see how Popovich thought this was so funny.

We also have to commend Brown for having a sense of humor about it.

If nothing else, let this be a lesson to everyone. When the police say “Hey, you, stop!” that’s what you want to do as soon as is humanly possible.
