Gregg Popovich quotes
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.
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.
He's in a different league than me.
I think Dewayne Dedmon was the star of the show tonight. Everything he did was great.
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.
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.
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.
And that respect has to be earned.
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.
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.
It does boggle the mind how somebody can be so thin skinned.
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.
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.
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.
What are we, the Magic Johnson Lakers with Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar) and everybody? We're just like everybody else.
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.
Kawhi is Kawhi, but we start to take him for granted. I think overall the bench was the key.
That's why I took them off the court. It was hard to watch.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
He's just an iconic and weird and wonderful guy all at the same time, and I mean that lovingly.
