San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich on Sunday responded to criticism from Donald Trump, praising NBA commissioner Adam Silver’s handling of the ongoing China issue as compared to the president’s relationship to a number of foreign leaders. “[Silver] stood by our nation and its principles.

I was proud of him. It was great.”
