Gregg Popovich tells no lies about Trump, current events

Before the San Antonio Spurs faced off against the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, Spurs Head Coach, Greg Popovich was asked whether or not he gets distracted by the outside world. His answer was in line with his previous commentary on our president, and captured the feeling of dread that so many of us are constantly carrying around these days:

There are few head coaches in the world of professional sports that have a combination of intelligence, bravery and standing to be taken seriously in the same that that Popovich can when it comes to talking politics and world events. As a life long fan of the NBA, it’s been an honor to follow the career of Popovich; not only is he one of the greatest coaches in the history of pro sports, he has come to be a voice of reason in today’s society.
