Gregg Popovich has never been afraid to speak his mind. The San Antonio Spurs was recently vocal against how certain Texas school districts, including San Antonio, have called a day off to celebrate Christopher Columbus Day. The Spurs coach sounded off against the policy in a recent interview after he was asked about President Joe Biden’s proclamation for Indigenous Peoples’ Day. “It’s way overdue for a country,” said the Spurs coach. “I would think there are a lot of people very happy about it. But I’m a little confused about our city and why it’s Indigenous Peoples’ Day slash Columbus Day. Columbus? He initiated a new-world genocide. That’s what he did.”
