Beal recently shared some insight as to how coach Gregg Popovich is getting the team prepared for the Olympic games. 

“Camp’s been intense, it’s been tough,” Beal said. “I mean it’s like NBA camp on steroids almost. it’s very attentive to detail, (Gregg Popovich) is excellent, like he is awesome to work with. And he just demands the best out of all of us, you know. And I think that’s what we all love and respect about him is there’s no favoritism, there’s accountability at every level, coaches, players, everybody, even himself. So I respect that heavily.”
