Gregg Popovich Rumors
Less than a week before Election Day, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich appeared in an ad formally endorsing Joe Biden and once again criticizing President Donald Trump. Popovich, an Air Force veteran, slammed Trump’s alleged description of service members as “suckers” and “losers” and appealed to decency and the rejection of white supremacy in a one-minute ad put together by The Lincoln Project, a group of anti-Trump conservatives.
Gregg Popovich: “Now it’s time for you to decide where you stand. For me it’s pretty simple: a vote for Donald Trump is a vote against the very ideals upon which our democracy was founded. Our democracy is at stake, so please stand with me, united in the land of the free and the home of the brave. I stand with Joe Biden.”
“You always try to figure out different ways you can strike change and be accounted for,” Hill said. “When I first got to the NBA, Coach Pop [Gregg Popovich] told me one thing that always stuck with me, is how do you put your whole fingerprints on the world and leave your mark. Sometimes you have to stand up for what’s right, and sometimes that may be ruffling feathers and may be frowned upon by everyone else, but at the end of the day in your heart, knowing you’re on the right side of history and knowing that you did the right thing, good or bad, you have to live with that.”
Gregg Popovich just bagged $3 million for his mansion in San Antonio, the city where he led the San Antonio Spurs to five NBA championships over the last 24 years. Records show the coach bought the home back in 2005 a few months after leading the team to its third title. The sale was a multi-year effort for Popovich, who first asked $4.5 million in 2018 before eventually trimming the tag to $3.1 million over the summer.
