Last quote by Gregg Popovich

That was great game. Both teams played their hearts out. Just a fantastic basketball game. The fans got their money's worth tonight for sure. At the end, Marc made a great shot. L.A. (LaMarcus Aldridge) contested it very, very well, and it went down.feedback

Gregg Popovich quotes

I think they used the example of the young man and his dad or whatever. They've saved up their money. They want to go see somebody play, and that person's not there. I get it. If it was me, I'd be miffed myself. But we all have different roles, different jobs, and different goals. We can't satisfy everybody. But I think that every owner's gonna be different. I think it's a slippery slope, and makes it difficult to keep trust, and camaraderie to the degree that I think you have to have to be successful in this league if owners get too involved in what coaches and GMs are doing.feedback

The one comment that I've heard that makes a lot of sense, is that if you're gonna rest somebody, if you can do it at home, then you should. Like, we're resting Danny Green tonight.feedback

I understand Adam's concern, and it's a legitimate concern. We all have it. We all feel badly about [it].feedback

Luckily all the participants are sane people and care about the same thing and want to get it right. It's not about anybody having power or wanting to issue orders. It's about trying to get it right. That's the great thing about the league and what we're doing. It's all good.feedback

We have definitely added years to people. So it's a trade-off. You want to see this guy in this one game? Or do you want to see him for three more years in his career?feedback

Lillard and McCollum were super, but I thought they executed their offense great. We just didn't guard them tonight as well as we needed to.feedback

We're obviously thrilled about that, but more importantly thrilled that the doctors feel that he's fine in the sense that we're not putting him in danger or anything like that. That's the most important part.feedback

He's dealt with this all year long, which nobody really knew about. Being a consummate pro, he was able to do everything that was necessary to bring this to some sort of a conclusion. That wasn't easy throughout the year. He's gone through some procedures and had to do some things that are not pleasant. He's shown a lot of class and a lot of fortitude in the way he's done it all.feedback

I was really pleased that they continue to guard and hustle the way they did despite being sloppy with the ball. No, we're just going to wait until he comes back and assess him. I think he'll be back either tomorrow morning or tonight, I don't know which.feedback

I don't want to compliment David Lee too much. I don't want him to get a big head. I want to keep him angry and wondering every minute whether he might play or not. He's had a great year for us, he's played well all season long. We're lucky to have him.feedback

Well, I've seen him play over time, and he's definitely not a minimum player, for sure, and he's proven that to a lot of people hopefully. It's just a matter of sometimes circumstances are more important or affect your life more than you, individually, and that happens to all of us. It's called life, and he's worked through it and come here and done a heck of a job.feedback

It's a win we're going to accept and keep, but wasn't a fair fight. They're Golden State. Their top four or five players weren't there, if anybody didn't notice. We're supposed to win a basketball game like that.feedback

He's moving through the protocol. We expect and hope he will be fine by the end of it. It just takes a while. The next possible game is Monday and I'm hopeful he will be ready for that.feedback

Somebody says a heart, you start thinking a little more possible long-term kind of stuff, that's a little scary. But you don't go there yet. They're doing tests. They did some tests today and they're going to continue it on Monday. He's going to see some people on Monday, and based on what they do and see, we'll figure then what we're really looking at. We really don't know right now.feedback

The block is what makes him special. Obviously, the 3, you know, Harden makes 3s, Kawhi makes 3s, Steph Curry makes 3s. Everybody does that. But I don't know who goes to the other end and does what he does. Not that many people, on a consistent basis, an entire game, game after game.feedback

Every game with Houston's been like this. Nobody's kicked anybody's butt. The wins we had in Houston, I think we're pretty similar. In fact, I think one game they were upon us and we came back like tonight. But both teams are hungry. Both teams are very competitive, very physical, so it's was anybody's ball game. It's not like we kicked anybody's butt. The game could have gone either way. So both teams deserve a lot of credit for competing the way they did.feedback

It was a heck of a competitive game. It was real physical and aggressive. I thought both teams played real well. I'm obviously thrilled with a win on the road. It could have gone either way. Good friend, good matchup.feedback

At times, you had to slap yourself watching those guys guard each other and do what they do out there because they are so much fun to watch.feedback

I thought we were quick on the shots and a little contested. They got into us good. They were a little physical. I just don't think we played wisely in that regard.feedback

I don't have a drama meter to prove one way or the other, but less drama makes my job easier and that's good enough for me. The grass looks greener and the sky's blue more often when you win a game than lose a game.feedback

The object is to put the ball in that orange ring. That's what we are all trying to do. Play a little D at the other end. But that orange ring, that ball's got to go in there. Thirty-six percent from the field and 20 from 3, whatever it was, that's not going to get it done on the road. The grass looks greener and the sky's blue more often when you win a game than lose a game.feedback

I think Dewayne Dedmon was the star of the show tonight. Everything he did was great.feedback

Overall, we played more competitively for more of the 48 minutes than we have recently. We played good defense in the first half and the fourth quarter, but it's still a 48-minute game. We have to figure that out.feedback

You didn't know how team oriented would he be. Would he understand the game? Would he play both ends? Would he be consistent night after night? You don't know that about young players, but obviously he's a special guy.feedback

Instead of honoring the 117 people behind him where he was speaking, he talked about the size of the crowd. That's worrisome. I'd just feel better if somebody was in that position that showed the maturity and psychological and emotional level of somebody that was his age. It's dangerous and it doesn't do us any good. I hope he does a great job, but there's a difference between respecting the office of the presidency and who occupies it.feedback

And that respect has to be earned.feedback

It's all obvious, it's about him. If anything affects him, if it's Saturday Night Live or Hamilton, or she got three more million votes than you. They're illegal.' It doesn't matter what it is, there's a pattern there. And that's dangerous. I'd like to have someone with gravitas, but he got there through the electoral college which is part of our system, and I hope he does some good things.feedback

If our children would've said it, we would have grounded him for six months. Without a doubt. But we ignore all that because, because why? That says something about all of us and that's what's dangerous, or that's what scares the hell out of me to this day. It makes me uneasy.feedback

It does boggle the mind how somebody can be so thin skinned.feedback

He was a great teammate for everybody. One of the hardest workers. Playing two or three years in the D-League (with San Antonio's Austin affiliate) going back and forth. I'm thrilled for what he's accomplished for himself.feedback

Our opponents have outplayed us physically and execute-wise in most first halves for most of the season, and somehow we pull it together in the second half and play harder and smarter than we did in the first half. We got it to four, then some execution mistakes. That's the disappointing part, that we're not a very consistent team and we haven't learned as a group the game is 48 minutes.feedback

We knew Tony was going to miss some games. To have another person that has the courage and the experience to play that position is important.feedback

What are we, the Magic Johnson Lakers with Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar) and everybody? We're just like everybody else.feedback

We gave up the whole first quarter, and after that we knuckled down and played pretty good. And the starters came back in and played better after that too.feedback

Kawhi is Kawhi, but we start to take him for granted. I think overall the bench was the key.feedback

That's why I took them off the court. It was hard to watch.feedback

I'm a rich white guy and I'm sick to my stomach thinking about it. I can't imagine being a Muslim right now or a woman or an African-American, Hispanic, a handicapped person. How disenfranchised they might feel. For anyone in those groups that voted for him, it's just beyond my comprehension how they ignore all that.feedback

I live in that country where half the people ignored all that to elect someone. That's the scariest part of the whole thing to me.feedback

Everybody wants him to be successful, it's our country, we don't want it to go down the drain. Any reasonable person would come to that conclusion, but it does not take away the fact that he used that fearmongering and all the comments from day one. The race-baiting with trying to make Barack Obama our first black president illegitimate. It leaves me wonder where I've been living and with whom I'm living.feedback

So, was it a big fake? ... What gets lost in the process are African-Americans and Hispanics and women and the gay population – not to mention the eighth-grade developmental stage exhibited by him when he made fun of the handicap person. I mean, come on. That's what a seventh-grade, eighth-grade bully does, and he was elected President of the United States.feedback

We would have scolded our kids. We would have had discussions and talked until we were blue in the face trying to get them to understand these things and he is in charge of our country? That's disgusting.feedback

He was like a security blanket for everybody. Even if things went awry. He was like the center of the universe and everybody knew how to act around that. With that pivotal guy gone, we'll have to wait and see who accepts that role.feedback

He's just an iconic and weird and wonderful guy all at the same time, and I mean that lovingly.feedback
