    Pop has become insufferable.

    “I often curse Pop for doing what he did,” said Bob Mulherin, a Spurs fan for more than 25 years. “He insulted more than half of the Spurs’ fan base, and no sign whatsoever of an apology.”


    Trump effect may be hitting the Spurs!

    Truly unfortunate. Popovich is a great coach. Too bad he’s allowed himself to invite the distraction of politics to the game. I would feel the same if he was pro Trump. I loved sports way more before political views started becoming more prominent in the game. Too bad a good thing has been ruined.

    I love Pop's coaching, I despise his politics, and his attitude in spewing about it.

    Very surprising that he's a cucked liberal.

    Might've been Duncan's "Go-To Hole" during all those years....

    Much ado about nothing. If the fans wanted to do something about it
    all they would have to do is not show up for the games.
    Nothing gets managements attention like sinking revenue.

    If Popovich wants to sit down for dinner and spout off about Trump no problem - but getting in front of a camera, that is filming him because he is a basketball coach, and talking about Trump makes him look like a fool - he is also is a total hypocrite - there can be no doubt Trump is having tremendous success in several areas - most importantly the economy is doing well for ALL Americans - in particular minorities - you can't rip Trumps big mouth and just forget about all the success we are having

    Ettore Messina to coach Spurs in Game 3 vs. Warriors.

    Gregg Popovich, whose wife, Erin, died Wednesday, will not coach Game 3 of the San Antonio Spurs' first-round playoff series on Thursday night, the team announced.
    Spurs assistant coach Ettore Messina will fill in for Popovich against the Golden State Warriors.
    Erin Popovich died early Wednesday at the age of 67. She had been battling an illness for an extended period. The couple was married for four decades and had two children -- Jill and Mickey -- as well as two grandchildren.
    "We're all suffering a profound loss to a really important member of our family and our team," Spurs general manager R.C. Buford said Thursday. "Erin and Gregg were best friends who were together for 40 years, and Erin's impact and influence on our organization, on our families, on our players and their families will be felt for years to come.
    "I spoke to Pop this morning. He's overwhelmed by the support. He's very appreciative of the love that's been shared with our group and with him and his family and Erin's family. As you'd expect from Pop, he wants our focus to be about the game today, about this series, and that's what today will be about. We'll miss Erin a lot, and the focus of our team will be on supporting Pop. But we've got basketball to get back to."
    Popovich, who has won five NBA titles since becoming coach in 1996, had run the Spurs' practice Wednesday.
    Golden State has a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
