Why I Love Gregg Popovich
I coached and ran a large basketball club for a dozen years, but can’t say most sports figures, coaches, entertainers impress me much when it comes to GETTING IT. I love Greg Popovich because he gets what is wrong with our president and this country.
Below is a quote from an ESPN article, which includes video. Popovich is as candid and forthcoming concerning Trump as he is in his post game comments when his team underperforms.
POPOVICH GETS IT!
“Our country is an embarrassment in the world. This is an individual who actually thought that when people held arms during the games that they were doing it to honor the flag. That’s delusional. Absolutely delusional. But it’s what we have to live with.
“So you got a choice: We can continue to bounce our heads off the wall with his conduct, or we can decide that the institutions of our country are more important, that people are more important, that the decent America that we all thought we had and we want is more important, and get down to the business at the grassroots level and do what we have to do.” –Gregg Popovich
