I agree. I've been a Spurs fan for 30 years. I am interested in Popovich's opinion on Team Defense & how best to increase the number of Offensive Rebounds for a person or a Team.

But I don't want to hear His opinion (or the guy how cooks my Hamburger's opinion)..... on Politics.

I'm about to "Fire" Pro Basketball.....just like I have Pro Football.

The guy that cooks your hamburger doesn't always have cameras rolling on him with reporters writing down what he says every minute. Cut the guy some slack.

No.

He should say "no comment" & keep his pie hole shut.

Would it change your opinion if his players considered the expression of those opinions to be an important part of the team's winning culture?

Popovich's political commentary polls well with Spurs players

I'm not an EN subscriber so I can't read the story, but it's not surprising that the players would agree with their coach. It doesn't change my opinion at all.

For all the talk of boycotts, I bet a grand total of zero people stop watching the NBA or NFL in the long run. Sports figures have opinions, what a shock.

Hell no.

Pop goes around abusing reporters because he does not like the question. The follow up to Pop's asinine comments should have been, "What do you think of the country?" I mean as a country we elected POTUS but journals get themselves wet over negative commentary about the president.

Pop should have said Our country is an embarrassment to the world, but he clearly lack the balls. (No pun intended)


Maybe he should care more about an Eastside, where his players play, that is so violent now that we are one of the most violent cities in the nation and leave worldly country commentary to more the more informative.

I call bull.
You only want him to stay in his lane because you don't agree with him.
I'd be shocked if you thought it was a problem when Ted Nugent had an opinion on politics, or Tim Allen, or any other number of celebrities got on FoxNews and talked politics.

Politics effect us all, and everyone has an opinion, if they shove a camera and a mic in his face and ask him, there is no harm in him answering.

I personally feel what he has had to say has been well thought out and reasoned. At least he's not throwing BS against the wall to see what sticks like others.

Wrong.

I care about Ted Nugent's opinion in the exact same manner. Don't try and act like you know my thought process.

When I go to a game or a show I do not care about the performers political opinions. Like I said before, Pop is even more annoying because he is sooooo selective about the questions he will answer. That and he was arrogant enough to think he speaks for the whole country.

Is it enough to make you stop following the Spurs or could you see it getting to that point?
