Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver called out the San Antonio Spurs for not putting their best players on the court. Gregg Popovich has now responded to Sarver’s comments. We have what Pop had to say and much more on today’s edition of Duncan’s Daily Dose! Let’s get it started shall we?
Our first piece we have for you is Gregg Popovich’s response to Robert Sarver’s comments. Sarver apologized to fans attending the preseason game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Phoenix Suns due to the lack of star power present on the court. This was not a knock on the talent on both teams, rather, it was a shot at the fact the Spurs were resting some of their stars.
Check out what Pop had to say in response to the Phoenix Suns’ owner below.
“As I said, the silliness begins,” he said. “Most wise individuals would check facts before they made statements. Unless you’re interested in putting on a show. In that case, the facts get in your way, as in this case.
“We had five guys we didn’t send. Patty Mills had a shoulder operation over the summer. Tiago Splitter (calf) has been out the whole preseason. Kawhi Leonard (eye infection) was out and is still out for 10 more days. The other two, Duncan and Ginobili, are two of the oldest guys in the league who just came back from a 13-day European trip.
“The only thing that surprises me is that he didn’t say it in a chicken suit. I’ll just leave it at that.”
Our next piece we have for you are some of the best Gregg Popovich moments. Since Pop was not at the game against the Suns, there was no Gregg Popovich sarcasm to be seen. We have you covered though with some Pop sarcasm to make up for lost times.
