    • Well, it’s either an example of a leader or an example of a big mouthed lout: you know, the sort of man Donald Trump is accused of being.

      The fact that Progressives are so clearly showing their hypocrisy doesn’t surprise me, but I am greatly disappointed.

        • Andy,

          Simply put: leader or big mouthed lout, Gregg Popovich is using his bully pulpit to spout rhetoric. This is essentially what he’s accusing Donald Trump of doing. The primary difference is the two men’s approach to the subject matter, which stands in diametric opposition.

          As long as Popovich’s method of attack is the same as Trump’s, he has abdicated his right to call the president out for applying that same offensive strategy.

          When the coach says “there’s a difference between respecting the office of the president and the person who occupies it” after having accused anyone who had sincere issues with Obama’s administration of no-so-thinly-veiled racism, he’s trying to defend himself for doing the same thing as those he’s already condemned.

          And that’s what I mean by hypocrisy.

          • Awesome comment- many will not appreciate the sagacity of it, preferring to rail against its logic and truth with leftist talking points or call names as is their default- proving again that they cannot reason themselves as you have done.

  1. Popovich speaks the unadulterated truth and truth drives the Trump zombies into a frenzy of denial and accusation. So be it. The majority of the country will continue to hold this “Accidental Presidents” feet to the fire.

  2. So Pop wishes President Trump could just be more mature? More mature like…his esteemed protestors who say things like how often they think of blowing up the White House?

  3. Sigh… Thank you Coach Pop. You make me so proud to be from San Antonio. With all the “alternative facts” tainting our country it’s refreshing wake up and hear the clear voice of wisdom, reason and truth, especially from a reputable, sound and true leader. Again, gracias.

  4. Anyone who says that “Protesting and Hurting Our Own” is “Great” will never have my respect. Hatred will never win no matter who is our president. I don’t know what the Women’s Rights March was actually marching for but what gives them the right to disrespect those who work and live in the city by leaving all their trash and garbage behind for others to clean up. Shame on the San Antonio Spurs organization for allowing Popovich to speak out like this at an event. I wonder how Peter Holt (San Antonio Spurs Owner) feels about this ? One of the greatest men ever, Dr. Martin Luther King, never thru one brick, never burned one car never destroyed property. His message was of love and understanding. People need to listen to his “I have a dream” speech and listen to his message. It is time to move on a find a way to “Love Our Country” again.

    • You mean this Martin Luther King?

      “But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear?…It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.”

    • And why would the Spurs stop Popovich from speaking his mind? Imagine if he’d given a pro-Trump message. Would you still want Holt and the Spurs organization to silence him? I certainly wouldn’t and I hope you as a patriotic, Constitution-loving American wouldn’t either.
