San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich is making news about his comments of saying that the accomplishment of his team setting an NBA record means “absolutely nothing”.

On Wednesday, the Spurs won their 38th straight home game of the season which bested the ’95-96 Chicago Bulls. Raja Bell played 12 season in the NBA and was a guest on ESPN’s show The Jump with Rachel Nichols. Bell discussed that Coach Popovich is not going to sacrifice a long term deal, for a short-term goal.

The statement was made when Nichols questioned Popovich comments of staying perfect at home being worthless. It truly is a great feat for any team to win all of their games at home. As many fans of the Spurs know, this is a team that is not about the accolades during the seasons, but if they will be raising another banner in the AT&T Center.

Popovich has a blueprint of success in San Antonio. He is an absolute genius and is well-respected around the league not only by his colleagues but by former and current players who wish to learn from him.

It seems to bother the rest of the media when they feel Popovich can go on record and say that it doesn’t mean anything to him and mean it 100 percent. There is no trolling going on from Pop.

There is a goal in place for the team and he wants everyone to know that is the teams number one goal. To view the segment of The Jump, you can follow the link by going here.
