Greg Popovich Calls Trump Dangerous To Our Institutions
Before the Spurs went out and almost pulled off the Game 1 upset over the Golden State Warriors, Greg Popovich had a very impactful statement about the President of the United States.
When he was asked about ever getting distracted by the state of the country, he responded as only Popovich would.

This isn’t the first time that the Spurs head coach has criticized Donald Trump as he has made critical comments to the media before when discussing the President.
Whether you agree or disagree with what Pop is saying, I appreciate his thoughtfulness with the message and the fact he takes this platform to present constructive thoughts and ideas.
Others took to social media to react to what Popovich said.
Gregg Popovich ia an idiot for criticizing President Trump. He should stick to coaching basketball not presidents.

If a conservative NBA coach would have voiced his opinion on Hillary Clinton he would be fined but Pop gets praised for attacking Trump

@MrMichaelLee so crazy that Pop goes at Trump and he gets no backlash but Kaep on the other hand, a backup QB is an distraction. Pop the GM & Coach.

Impeach Trump. Impeach Pence.
Pop for President.

Pop calls Trump's actions "embarrassing" and "dangerous." Says he's treating the presidency like he's on a game show.
