You may recall that last November, right after the election, I posted the audio here of an interview that NBA coach Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs gave, when -- near the end -- he went off on a quiet, eloquent rant against the just-elected Donald Trump. It was notable because Coach Pop, as he's called, is well-known for being taciturn and doesn't talk to the press all that much. Though when he does speak to them, he's blunt (and snarky). Popovich also is an Air Force veteran who at one point early in his career working for the CIA.
After yesterday's playoff game against San Francisco, Popovich was at his post-game press conference. A question came up, and that gave him yet another platform. He went off on a slight tangent to get a subtle, but pointed dig in at Trump, and then later returned to the subject. As always, very softly -- but blunt.
