Longtime Spurs fans ‘turned off’ by coach Gregg Popovich’s anti-Trump comments, report says

Once-devoted devotees of the NBA’s seventh-seed San Antonio Spurs are progressively spurning the group due to its head mentor’s harmful hostile to Trump remarks, as per another report.

Alliance veteran Gregg Popovich, 69, has been especially frank about the new White House, calling Trump a “defeatist” and an “obsessive liar” who is “unfit mentally, inwardly, and mentally.”

In March, Popovich addressed whether the Second Amendment is “valuable” any more, and said Trump “draws out the dim side of people” – reactions that a considerable lot of the Spurs dedicated took by and by.

“I am totally killed,” Spurs ex-fan Cassandra Casanova, 65, revealed to The Washington Post. “After every one of those years supporting the group, and now I simply have no intrigue. Popovich truly fouled up.”

Casanova asserted she gave many group shirts and other stock to philanthropy, and essentially disregarded the group’s playoff opener vanquish against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

“That is the manner by which furious I got. It destroyed my b-ball life,” she included. “I thought about it literally. I was such a dependable fan, and he offended me. For what reason would you begin assaulting the general population who had been so steadfast?”

Another veteran Spurs fan met by the paper said he was especially irritated by Popovich’s obstinance.

“I regularly revile Pop to do what he did,” said Bob Mulherin. “He offended the greater part of the Spurs’ fan base, and no sign at all of an expression of remorse.”

Gotten some information about the article by a correspondent not long ago, Popovich said he didn’t “give it a second thought” about its substance. He underlined that the Spurs association has never instructed him to temper his candid political convictions.

Response crosswise over online networking included unforgiving reactions of the fans cited by the paper, including one article at a conspicuous liberal games blog that called them “fools” for supporting the president by any means.
